The Cinemax drama, an adaptation of the Jason Statham film series, will star Chris Vance as extreme driver Frank Martin.
Filming on the project was halted earlier this month when former Prison Break star Vance was injured filming an action sequence.
An internal email sent to cast and crew by production manager Anna Beben has now indicated that production will not resume before the end of 2011, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"It appears that Chris's recovery is going to take a little longer than we had anticipated," wrote Beben. "[He] has not been cleared for work and will be reassessed in 3 weeks."
Vance is said to be walking with a limp and is unable to perform in the show's rigorous action scenes.
"The producers may decide that it is best to simply return in the new year," added Beben.
The Transporter showrunners Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie were replaced by Steve Shill and Karen Wookey in August, due to creative differences.
The 12-part series series was originally expected to film in Toronto throughout November and debut on Cinemax in 2012.
