Unfortunately for fans who were excited to catch it this year, they will have to wait a little longer as it was announced that the series will debut in 2021 instead due to production delays. 

The information was shared along with a teaser for the share, though the clips in the teaser are the exact same used in the first clip shared in 2019.
