Initial plans were to restart England's top-flight campaign on June 12 following the successful return of the Bundesliga.
But with that date rapidly appearing on the horizon, talks are set to be held about whether to push that back.
Players will need more time to get up to match fitness to avoid injuries and all club members will need to continue to be tested for coronavirus.
And it appears June 19 could be a realistic option following the revelation from broadcasting giants Sky.
A Sky employee responded to a query on the website that read: "We're in the process of un-pausing Sky Sports as we see more live sport return during June.
"Some of you will have noticed that we'll be restarting subscriptions from the 19th of June and we'll be making more information available shortly."
Premier League chiefs will continue talks today to further iron out details on how the season will be completed.
No decision will be made at this meeting, with a concrete date set to be revealed next week.
Either way, the schedule is likely to be hectic with plans of a mini-festival of football that could see every game shown on TV.
That could mean five back-to-back games on both Saturday and Sunday.
