Chatting in a Q&A, Lisa told reporters that the show could return “in a kind of anthology way”, adding that season one’s story is most definitely concluded. She said: “We wanted to go ‘here’s what happened’ and answer it fully.” Tobias added: “You might have to do it slightly differently whereas perhaps not bringing back all the characters, but using the house. Telling a different story using the house perhaps.”
