Producer for the show Evan Husney spoke to SI.com about the show’s future. During the discussion, he noted that Vice wants to produce a 3rd season in the series.
“A third season is something everybody involved wants to do,” Husney said. “Vice wants to make a Season 3, we would love to see it happen, and we’re in those stages of conversation.”
Unfortunately, Husney pointed out that the ongoing pandemic has left production in the television industry in an uncertain period.
“Right now, there are just a lot of question marks about the future of production, and even the future of the world. Our show deals with a lot of travel, and we’d love to go international to places like Japan in Season 3, but there is a lot of uncertainty in terms of that.”
Vice also released the below deleted scene from Season 2 finale’s below:
