Undone, Amazon Prime Video's first rotoscoped animated series, returned for a second season last week. taking viewers on more adventures through time and space with main character Alma.

One running question throughout season one was whether Alma did indeed have these incredible powers or whether she had a mental illness and just believed she possessed them. Season 2 seems to feel like it veers more towards the former, but lead actress Rosa Salazar isn't so sure.

Speaking to Digital Spy as part of a lengthy interview about the show and its melancholic ending, Salazar said: "I think it's still very open-ended, and I think that it's also a combination of the two. In the first season we're saying, like you said: 'Is she unwell? Or is she gifted? Is she schizophrenic, or does she have some sort of shamanic ability?'

"And I think perhaps it's not schizophrenia. But I think there definitely is some trauma and some mental illness from whatever timeline. She is who she is, because wherever you go, there you are.

"I also… we know that she does have abilities. So there's some combination of the two happening. The question persists: which one is more prevalent, and which one is the one that is more guiding the show? Do you have one without the other?

"I mean, it just sparks more questions. You could be sitting next to your partner on the couch, and go, 'She's a shaman.' Then your partner goes: 'She's insane. How could you believe that?' And that's what I love about Undone...

"There's shades of both. And I think if there were to be a third season, we would really delve into that. This is just my wishful thinking. We would really go inward because I think Alma is this person who wants to fix everything."

As Salazar mentioned, a third season hasn't been greenlit yet, but we've talked a bit about when we could first expect it and what it might be about over here.

Undone is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
