“When we all read it at our final table read when we shot it, it felt very bittersweet. It felt sad, but also happy and full,” Jacinto said. “Whatever you expect to explore in this show, it’s going to twist and turn all different ways.”

“I’ve tried to make my predictions, the cast has tried to make their predictions, and all of us have failed,” he continued. “We don’t know what’s going on in the [showrunner] Mike Schur brain.”
