He shared, “Even though it’s a world of weirdos, she’s an extra weirdo and so is he. But still, they’re both smiling — that’s the fun part. They’re both having fun. They’re not dark black sheep. It’s more like a weird black sheep.”

Bloomberg, who first reported the news, states that the plot of the potential spinoff hasn’t been developed yet … “The writers have to figure out the story, the company needs to negotiate contracts with talent, and the schedules of the individuals must align.”
