These included at least two major Netflix projects: Red Notice, starring Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson, and the popular sci-fi-thriller series Stranger Things.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the cast of the fan favourite series have been told season four production is 'tentatively' due to start back up again on 17 September.
In March, Netflix took the decision to suspend the production of shows and movies in the US and Canada 'due to government restrictions and health/safety precautions'.
When filming does recommence it definitely sounds like it'll be worth the wait - Joe Keery, who plays Steve Harrington in the show, claimed the fourth instalment is much more sinister than any that have come before.
Speaking to Total Film, the 28-year-old said fans are in for a treat when it eventually hits screens.
The actor said: "I think that this year - and I know I say this every single year - but this is definitely going to be a lot scarier than prior years, because last year was pretty dark."

He added: "Oh man, it's pretty amazing - the Duffer brothers have really done it again."
The trailer for the upcoming season landed earlier this year, clearing up one of the biggest mysteries surrounding Jim Hopper (played by David Harbour) - whether he was dead or not, following an ambiguous cliffhanger at the end of season three.
Well, it looks like he's definitely alive and is the 'prisoner' referred to at the end of the last season.
Speaking at Liverpool Comic Con, the 45-year-old revealed that the new series will delve deeper into his past.
He said: "There are these three things that we've established in the season that if we don't pay off, it means that they're bad writers. And the Duffer Brothers are very good writers.
"So I know specifically that in season four we will give you a big, huge reveal about Hopper's backstory."
Now all we need to do is wait for a release date.
