Originally intended to be a two-season arc with a definitive end, IFC’s Todd Margaret concluded its second season with David Cross‘ character blowing up the world. Done and done, right? Well, at the request of the network, David and the writers were urged to produce a third season, leaving a bit of a logistical problem for the storyline. Luckily, as Cross told host Catie Lazarus in an interview for her podcast Employee of the Month, staff writer Mark Chappell devised a way to bring the show back with, as Cross puts it, “the most brilliant f***ing scenario” that just had to be done.
Watch David give the lowdown on how the new season of Todd Margaret came to be, and be sure to see the results when season 3 starts on IFC January 7th, 2016 at 10P.
