Mr. And Mrs. Smith Boss Addressed Claims That Donald Glover And Maya Erskine Wouldn’t Return For Season 2, And I Have Mixed Feelings


This past February, Mr. and Mrs. Smith became available to Prime Video subscribers and managed to make a serious impression. Co-created and written by Donald Glover, the romantic spy dramedy earned rave reviews. So it wasn’t surprising when it was reported that the show had been renewed for another set of episodes. Though, at the time, it alleged that Season 2 would swap out lead actors Glover and Maya Erskine. Now, one of the show’s EPs has addressed that assertion and, to be completely honest, I have mixed feelings.

What Did The Producer Say About The Status Of The Show’s Two Stars?

Amid the confirmation of Season 2, it was quite interesting to hear that the two leads of Season 1 reportedly wouldn’t return. Their performances were, after all, collectively the driving force behind those first eight episodes. It would now seem that showrunner Francesca Sloane was taken aback by those reports as well. The EP discussed the matter while appearing on Entertainment Weekly’s The Awardist podcast. When discussing the matter, she recalled touching base with Donald Glover about it while adding some more thoughts: 

I was just talking to Donald last night about this and we were laughing, because one of the pieces of press said, ‘according to our sources,’ and we’re like, ‘Who are these sources?’ We wrote a cliffhanger, we thought about it long and hard. It was one of the first things that we wrote. Why in the world — we haven’t said anything — but why in the world would we ruin a cliffhanger based on a headline?
