In a brand new interview, Hissrich revealed that it is vital to map out the place the present and characters will go. In different phrases, as Hissrich places it, it might be a horrible concept to thoroughly concentrate on season one with no concept the place the sequence may go in case Netflix renews it for added seasons.

Of course, whereas Hissrich has the way forward for the present roughly outlined, you’d assume it isn’t all set in stone. More particularly, you’d assume viewers reception to sure characters, storylines, and many others., could be taken into consideration when making extra seasons.
