Fox has released a bunch of photos from episode 1×15, “The Cultish Personality,” with J.K. Simmons and Mary Lynn Rajskub guest starring, but they also put out a press release for another episode 1×15, called “Snip Snip.” I’m not posting any new pages until it’s clear which episode airs first, but you can see all the new stills on Pizquita.
Entertainment Weekly talked to Greg Garcia the other week and got a few interesting bits about the season finale and the babies not getting fired after this season:
“In our season finale, there’s a lot of explanation about the relationship between Maw-Maw, Burt, and Virginia and their whole dynamic,” he says of the episode that flashes back to five years ago.
Looking back is easy. Looking forward, however, is a bit trickier given that Hope is helmed by babies who will age even when the cameras aren’t rolling between seasons. (Hope is played by two sets of twins.) Thankfully, Garcia has a simple plan for that, too (because this isn’t The Simpsons, people).
“Things can always change, but the plan now is to start season 2 jumping forward in time to the point where the baby is whatever the [babies’ ages are] when we start season 2. We might even do a first episode that tells the story of what happened up until the last time we saw them,” he says. “I’d like to incorporate some home videos of the baby in that time and get some good stuff of the baby growing up so our viewers can also watch the baby grow up in those six months [we’re off the air]. At that age, with babies that little, every month they change.”
