    Oh my God. This role could not have been cast any better.
    I have to say, if the new showrunners can put together a good script, this will be an amazing season!

  3. So they’ll be studying History this year. Hope they don’t become one after this season…

    Interesting. I’m intrigued. Hey TVLine, I would be curious to know which writers and directors from previous seasons are staying on for the senior year. Were any of them retained?

    • Oliver says:

      Writers Megan Ganz, Andy Bobrow, Maggie Bandur, Tim Saccardo, Steve Basilone and Annie Mebane are sticking around according to Bobrow’s Twitter.

      I believe the only director confirmed publicly is Jay C. Expect the usual combination of Sony hired guns.
