The other reason was difficult to accept the fans of the show. “The bad reason is that we didn’t know whether Season 1 would be a success, so we didn’t start Season 2 until [later]. We could have started Season 2 much sooner if I had known. But because we didn’t know, we waited, and now we’re paying the price,” stated Laurent.
