Of course, fans of the original films will quickly notice Joshua jackson Not a part of this group. In a recent chat with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer and original franchise writer Steven Brill reported that Jackson’s return was not on the cards for the show, at least not at the moment. As Brill notes, the 2020 epidemic made it much harder to bring back original cast members, and we were fortunate to see six stars who were able to make a comeback.
“I always knew I wanted to bring back the original ducks and tie them into this series. Honestly, I think I would have woven more of them that weren’t for COVID. Getting the actors almost. It was impossible. Canada because they had to stay and stay there for a month to be a part of the show. When COVID hit, it became clear that what people would come up with would probably only last for one episode, Which was already a month. – Long commitment – two weeks for quarantine and two weeks for shooting. “
Brill explains that he preferred to sprinkle in the original actors throughout the season. We could see “Fulton Working Construction” or “Everyman as a teacher in high school.” Given the film’s difficulties, Brill and the creative team had to compromise, resulting in a reunion in the sixth episode game changers. Now, the plan is to bring back the original characters not seen in season 1 if the series is able to get an upgrade for season 2 on Disney +.
“We all had to compress this time in a reunion episode because we need season 2 because we’ll talk about Charlie! And Charlie’s mom Casey! [Heidi Kling]! And what happened to the Bash Brothers and Julie ‘The Cat’ Gaffney [Colombe Jacobsen-Derstine]. We have stories and things we want to explore, and I am excited to open all the avenues. It was a real puzzle and COVID added a whole layer, but what happened is surprising to me. It was not easy so I am glad it all happened. “
Further elaborating on the character of Charlie Conway, Joshua Jackson, Brill also explained why Jackson couldn’t make it for Season 1. Still, if Season 2 becomes what it is, Brill would really like to see that character again to see where Charlie is these days.
“With Josh, we always talked about when we’re going to bring him back, we’re going to bring him back in a big enough real way. COVID made it tough. In fact right in the middle of that one The child was. The idea of him coming in was not practical or possible. And then the idea that we could trace that storyline, the line was something we wanted to preserve. “
“Josh Jackson’s Charlie Conway was a big part of it and people want to know and Josh has obviously been an incredibly successful actor and personality over the last 30 years. I think bringing him to the second season intimate is great. Will happen. “
Another popular character that many fans want to see again is Target Greg Goldberg, played by Sean Weiss mighty Ducks Trilogy. Unfortunately, the times have been tough on Weiss in recent years. Last year, he was arrested on suspicion of theft while under the influence of meth. In January, the former Child star celebrated a year of happiness and looked very happy and healthy. His personal issues likely reduced his chances of returning as Goldberg in season 1, but his life changed since Weiss might have been able to come in season 2.
