“I know for sure that Max and Zoey will be dealt with. But there’s a lot more story to tell, ”said actor Skylar Astin, who will be playing Max for Showbiz Cheat Sheet in August. Astin revealed that he was going to shoot season 2 in a few weeks and was thrilled to be part of one of the first productions that started filming during the pandemic.

“We’re leaving next week to go up to Vancouver,” he said. “We are one of the first productions to start. I think that’s because Canada is doing very well over there and we want to make sure that not only are we healthy coming into the country, but that we stay healthy. . ”

What could Skylar Astin share about season 2?

At the time, Astin didn’t offer details about season 2. But he knew creator Austin Winsberg was going to do a deeper dive for the characters. “I think every actor, but also every character is so good, a deep source of emotion and humor and backing,” he said.

“And I know we’ll be focusing on the series controllers we got into in season 1, both individually and how they interact with each other,” Astin said.

“I had plans for Joan to be in a number of shows of the show,” he said. “And unfortunately, we just had to take a step, because there was no way Lauren could do both at the same time. “
