It's known exactly why Michael chose not to reprise the role for the show's second season, but it's possible that the shooting schedule for the new episodes clashed with another one of the actor's projects.

Todd has opened up about taking on the role

Filming for the new episodes took place during the latter half of 2021 and during that time, Michael may have had to turn down the opportunity due to his commitments on the latest seasons of AppleTV+ sci-fi drama For All Mankind as well as western drama Joe Pickett.

Taking to Instagram last month, he shared a series of snaps from filming and wrote: "To say I'm proud of this series, is an understatement!! Stepping into this role for the second season was not only terrifying but also one of the most rewarding experiences of my career."

"The calibre of actors I got to work with was so inspiring. And our crew, lead by our PHENOMENAL director Jen Leacey, were an absolute dream," he continued, before adding: "I hope I've done this role justice in continuing the legacy from season one."
