‘The Upcoming Season is Bigger and Crazier,’ Says Showrunner
Talking about what the audiences can expect from the new season, showrunner Henry Alonso Myers teased that it is going to be ‘bigger, crazier and stranger’ than the first one. “In some ways, it’s different. We were trying to take what worked and really amplify that. And then try to correct where we weren’t happy with it,” he stated.
Myers continued, “But the biggest thing we tried to do was not hold back stuff. We were really like, ‘Okay, let’s pretend this is our last season. And let’s absolutely go for everything that we wanted to do.’ I would say we tried to do comedy, and we were like, ‘Let’s go for bigger comedy. Let’s make things bigger and crazier.’”
“One of the things that I wanted to do a correction on was that I feel like we weren’t able to really touch on every single character. We’ve worked really hard to try to give every character their moment in the show. That’s the hardest thing about the show.”
