BrainDead Season 2 cancelled? While the axe has yet to officially fall on the CBS comedy-drama, the renewal odds are very bleak, EPs Robert and Michelle King admit in an interview with Hitfix:
How are things looking for a season 2?
Robert King: I don’t think good.
Michelle King: Nothing has been said definitely. But we did construct it in such a way that the ending of season 1 tells a full story.
Robert King: We love this cast. We love working with this cast. We had so much fun. It would be a perfect experience if it ends, but it would be a lovely thing to return with. Hopefully it’s something like Buckaroo Banzai that people will see and in a year or two, or bury it in a time capsule somewhere.
You had mentioned before that in a hopeful season 2, the show would go to Wall Street, then to Silicon Valley the next season, then to Hollywood. Would it be the same space bugs at all in those institutions?
Robert King: Something different. Where we were going was bigger each time. We were talking about going rat-size with Wall Street.
So there’d still be a mystery to solve with the new creature.
Robert King: Oh, yeah. And we’d have all the same characters, ’cause we just love them so much. We were going to lose Gustav, and Rochelle wasn’t going to follow, but we were having so much fun with the actors.
With BrainDead Season 2 renewal chances seemingly doomed, stay tuned as we await the expected cancellation (or miraculous escape)…
