When you started writing for season two, were there things you saw that worked well in season one, or conversely, things that maybe you thought didn’t work the way you expected? How was that part of the process?
Frolov: We discovered it didn’t work so well for our show to spend a lot of time out of the hospital on personal stories. It didn’t seem to fit our rhythm. … Other shows do that, but it didn’t feel like it worked for what we were doing.
Schneider: What always seems best for us if we can discover our characters’ personal lives and pasts through the cases that they’re working on.
Colin Donnell mentioned that the show expands outside of the ER more this season. Do you agree with that assessment? What motivated that shift?
Frolov: That allows us to follow a story through because usually in the ER, you come in and you go out. You’re either bumped to a floor or you’re released. So our doctors follow their patients through their stories, and that automatically takes us to other floors. We also have Connor now, who is doing heart surgery so he’s in a different department.
