Well, I’m disappointed that season 1 ended w/out a continuation. I was so impressed with the cast that I feel cheated. I will give the new season a try but with trepidation & doubt.
Very disappointed that the original characters are not being retained These actors gave life to the series making them indispensable.
This is the second series I’ve watched that has done this and it won’t be the same without these actors for those of us who loved the original…
