Det är sedan tidigare känt att Stumptown trots allt inte skulle få en säsong 2 (serien blev förnyad men beslutet togs tillbaka kort efter p.g.a. Covid-19). Som alltid är det även fler serie som inte kommer tillbaka under hösten. Ta en titt på listan nedan ⬇️
”Figuring out the best way to handle a pandemic in the context of a fictional series proved a challenge. Ultimately, it seemed right that the first two episodes would tackle the coronavirus, while the rest of the season would not—at least, not quite so directly. “On the one hand, we need to deal with it, and do it in an honest but entertaining way. But we’ve been living with this so much for the last six months…I do think we have a responsibility, as entertainers, to provide a little bit of an escape,” he explained. “So, the rest of the season will not be about COVID. It will be returning to the stories that we tell, the stories of life, of ethical choices and these characters in life-or-death [moments].”- deadline.com
