Frequency already has an eye on the future. EP Jeremy Carver is planning for a second season of the sci-fi drama, which will be shaped (and likely determined) by whether The CW extends the show’s debut season, per THR.
On how the show’s overarching mythology will govern the first season and beyond:
We dabble in [how the radio works]. One thing I’m really happy about with the pilot is that nobody questions the high concept because they are so invested in the character relationships and the conflicts. But to be true to some of our genre roots, we do start to pick away at the science of what’s going on here. But that’s something that we won’t really start to get into until later in the series.
On the the show’s serial-procedural balance:
The first season in particular is heavily, heavily weighted on the over-arching mythology. There are a few standalone cases but anything that isn’t about finding the Nightingale killer is about the other struggles these two are having, whether it be family conflicts or work conflicts. Season one is very much a serialized mystery which anyone can jump into at any time and not be lost.
On the structure of Season 2 and how much the first season will spill over into it:
We have a structure in place. But that also has to do with how many episodes we end up going in season one. We have a fully thought out, ready to go season one, but there is always that possibility that we’ll get some more episodes so we have to be a bit flexible about where we go. I can’t talk that much about it because I don’t want to spoil anything, but we’re prepared. I’ll just say that.
Stay tuned for the very latest cancelled/renewed updates for Frequency Season 2…
