What Can We Expect in Season 2 of The Big Door Prize?
Speaking to Deadline, showrunner David West Read teased what fans can expect in the second season of The Big Door Prize. He said, “This show is really about the cast and this incredible ensemble. Something really exciting about a second season is that we get to go deeper with these characters as they go deeper into themselves. And hopefully, this magical place of Deerfield and this magical cast of characters [will be something] that our audience will fall in love with and just want to spend more time with as we go on. The book that this show’s based on has a very specific ending. Our show doesn’t, so far. So it’s been really fun to expand the mysteries and the mythology of this Morpho machine. “
