TVLINE | With the Doctor out of the picture, would Shelly Cohen have become the primary antagonist?
ADELSTEIN | We never decided that. We certainly always relished the idea of getting Shelly and Lenny together to see what those two would be like in a room together. But Shelly and Lenny exist to do other people’s bidding. They’re not really interested in calling the shots. They just want to go out and be the sword of justice.
BROOKS | They’re a very fun potential wrinkle in anything that would’ve happened in Season 3. Paul’s always said, they’re a little bit sort of magic. They’re like from another universe a bit, and whenever they land on Imposters planet, it wakes and shakes the whole thing up in a great way.
TVLINE | The show’s greatest love story was the friendship between Richard, Jules and Ezra. Where do you imagine they are in six months in light of that ending?
ADELSTEIN | We felt that it was time for them to go their separate ways, that they concluded this journey, but that they had developed a bond that was undeniable. We wanted to do justice to that, and we wanted to leave it open that they would be able to find one another again. So we didn’t really know what form that was going to take, but we certainly knew that they weren’t going to be out of one another’s lives.
BROOKS | We’d see how strong the “all for one and one for all” thing would go, and what their lives are like without each other and without all this adventure. Does Richard actually try to run for office? What are the issues [with] that? What’s it like for Jules to have a relationship now, or for Richard? So I think that by the time they do catch up to each other, there’s going to be a lot to unpack for them. Plus, whatever crisis is ongoing for any or all of them.
Are you still reeling from the cancellation of Imposters? Did Bravo axe the wrong show? Was it the right decision?
