“I never really know. I just hope that people watch these last three episodes or catch up. There’s so many different things in the air. [ABC has] to do new pilots. We’ll probably know at the last second. But I think a good indicator [will be] how many people watch these episodes, which I hope is a lot.
On the ‘importance’ of Kevin Probably and why he believes Season 2 is essential:
I do. I really do. That was one of the things that I responded to so strongly in the pilot. [In] this period of time where it’s gotten so cutthroat, you [have] people online verbally brutalizing each other. It’s so easy to dismiss other people’s humanity through a computer monitor. So I do think it’s important. We have a lot of dark shows, and not a lot of shows that are… [Creators] Michele [Fazekas] and Tara [Butters], when they were talking about the show, initially, their theme was [for] it was: “Don’t be a jerk. Stop being mean. And even a little bit of kindness goes a long way.” It’s nice to have a show that shows how that can work, even if you don’t have a warrior from God prodding you to do nice things. [Laughs] You can just do it on your own.
Back in reality, the cancellation graveyard has already swallowed Kevin Probably.
Will you tune in for the final episodes? Still hoping for an un-cancellation?
