The Studio: Will They Consider?
The showrunners haven’t explicitly affirmed the fact that there will be another season. But, there is a buzz around the corner that the studio is considering to bring the popular series back for another season. The only question remains whether the original cast will be back or not. If things settle down according to the fans’ will, then we might get another season by March 2021.
If things come into play, this season will be after 4 long years. Till now there is no confirmation on season 9.
