“The heart of the show is this family, their relationships and their dynamic with each other,” co-creator Schneider told IndieWire. “(Cary and Brooke) are real people who travel the world, so it’s not an insider show. It’s just the backdrop in which we tell these grounded family stories.”
Schneider continued, “The season ended with the family venting all their grievances to each other. So they don’t have any more rough issues. (…) Everything is there. So there are many ways to deal with their dynamics and what’s next for them. We talked about doing a little bit of a time jump into the future just to jump into a new time in their lives. All we know for sure is that it is not an epidemic season. That’s not interesting. We’ll skip right over that.”
“The Other Two” Season 3 premieres May 4 on Max.
