He told Rolling Stone: "Well, we had a writer's room for 20 weeks to talk about Season Two and to break stories and generate outlines and first drafts.

"And now I'm having early talks with production design and VFX and getting everything into position, so that if we are lucky enough to have a Season Two, we're ready to go, ideally with the same team who made Season One."
