The good thing about acting on a show about a guy who can’t die, Judd Hirsch says, is that you’ll never run out of story.

And if ABC’s Foreveris renewed after its first season finale airs Tuesday (ABC, 10/9c), Hirsch tells TVLine, “We can go on for an enormously long time, simply telling the background of everything about us.”

That “us” refers to Hirsch’s character, an affable antiques-store owner named Abe, and Henry, the younger man everyone thinks is his friend — but who’s actually his immortal adoptive father.

Hirsh has been an integral part of several long-running series, but he says Forever “is the most unique one that I’ve ever encountered. Even if I wasn’t in it, I would just keep wondering what [story] are they going to tell next?”
