Hassan Varasteh told reporters that he changed the plot and made it shorter so that the production stage of the series finishes earlier than planned, and the cast and crew be able to isolate themselves amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The shooting for the series was scheduled to finish next spring.
Varasteh stressed that the changes did not affect the quality of the series.
The series is starring Kamran Tafti, Sorayya Qasemi, Andisheh Fouladvand and Behnaz Jafari, among others.
Many cultural events have been cancelled over the coronavirus outbreak, which has also halted the filming for many movies and TV shows.
