The network's statement explained that the veteran actress's film is being pushed to next year because of filming restrictions brought about by the pandemic, which has upended the world for several months now.
The said film features the character of White helping would-be Santas get ready for the annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ. The movie will lead people to wonder: "Is she secretly Mrs. Claus?"
The "Golden Girls" actress has also taken this time to explore her own backyard.
