“There’s a possibility [of a Season 3 comeback.]
[A revival] is not inconceivable. One day we might return to this world; it has such rich characters. With some time away from it, there’s possibility for a special. I think when people watch the final episode, they will see threads in that episode that one could imagine could be addressed in some future form, like in a comic or a special. Right now I am content with what it is, but I cant speak for future Alex.”
Despite leaving the hatch open for a potential return, Hirsch reiterates his view that the series has a limited life-span:
One thing to keep in mind is that I did this because I love the show. When I very first pitched the show, I pitched it as: This show has only a few seasons — just one summer, a few big questions that have answers, and once you get them, that’s it. … It’s more important to me to do something I believe in and am proud of rather than trying to stretch it out.
