“Spring next year we start,” McGregor told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m really excited about it. It’s gonna be great, I think.”
When asked about the show’s scope, and a potential second season, McGregor said, “As I understand, it’s a standalone season. We’ll see. Who knows?”
Earlier this year, the actor responded to rumours that production had been put on hold while the scripts underwent a rewrite. “It’s not been put on hold, it’s just been pushed back a little bit,” McGregor told the Associated Press (per People).
“The scripts are excellent and they just want them to be better. So we just pushed it back, but it’s not — it’s very dramatic, it would seem, online, there’s all kinds of s— online about it, but it’s only just slid back a bit.
“We’re still shooting it, I think it will still be aired when it was meant to be and I’m really excited about it. It’ll be fun to play again.”
