After a game-changing finale, the immediate reaction viewers want to know is, when does Season 2 start, but you haven’t gotten the word yet. What are the prospects of Season 2?
GM: That’s being discussed between A+E and Fox 21 Television studios. I know I’m excited about it, and we have a great creative team of directors, writers, and actors who are ready to get back to work. I have a lot of ideas (see above) for what that season is, specific episodes and character arcs, I just hope we get that opportunity.
Sadly, Amani met a similar fate to Veronica [sans being violated by tree roots] and was put in a mass grave with Sister Greta Fraueva (Robin Weigert) and later show this somewhat ambiguous hand breaking through the dirt. Now, Sister Greta wasn’t shot, but regardless of who is clawing their way up, either choice would make for interesting storylines in Season 2.
GM: We have an idea of who that is. There’s a lot of story there but I’m not going to give that away. We just wanted to set stuff up for Season 2, I don’t really like to do cliffhangers, especially with Damien, but we do like to set stuff up. It’s a very dark, bleak episode. So that hand coming out of grave is such a beautiful, horror movie image, how could we not do that? We also wanted to set up the Vatican Death Squad. [Laughs] These guys are finally mobilized and are coming in.
