The shooting schedule had been stalled following Louis-Dreyfus's breast cancer diagnosis and to allow the actress to recuperate from her treatment. She revealed the news of her diagnosis in September 2017 , a day after the Emmys aired, and has kept her fans and followers in the loop on her progress.

To mark the end of her chemotherapy treatment in January, she posted a video of her sons Charlie and Henry lip-syncing Michael Jackon's 'Beat It'. Following this, the actress shared a photo of herself post-surgery.
