“There’s been so much pressure, so much demand, and so much love for a second season,” he said on Tuesday. “So I almost feel like you leave us no choice.”

He added: “But I will say: there will indeed be a second season. It’s in my head right now. I’m in the planning process currently. But I do think it’s too early to say when and how that’s going to happen.”
