Kaley Cuoco on the potential of doing a season 3:
“It’s going to take a lot of thought to make sure if we go back that it’s better than the last two, which is very hard to do,” she told People.com, noting there are no current plans for a third season of the HBO Max dramedy. “There’s definitely interest in doing a third season. I think for me, at this moment, the plane has landed.”
It is worth noting how little buzz there has been around the second season of the show. (Was there really much left to do with the show after that first season?)
It's interesting how many buzzy shows from the past year or so haven't been able to draw much buzz for their second seasons. The highly compelling Hacks comes to mind. Is there a link between these shows breaking big while we were all dealing with COVID? This year as we're now all largely just back in the world getting on with life again, is it that these shows feel connected to a world we're trying to leave behind?
