It’s believed that all the main cast, including Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Karen Pittman, Desean Terry, Mark Duplass, Bel Powley and Will Arnett, will be returning for the new episodes. It seems likely that Steve Carell, whose character sadly died at the end of season two, will not be back – although he could appear in flashback scenes.

While details on season three remain under wraps for now, it was previously teased that season three will not pick up exactly where the show’s last instalment left off. As fans will recall, the second season concluded with the US on the cusp of lockdown and Jennifer Aniston’s character Alex contracting the virus while visiting Mitch in Italy.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, ex-showrunner Kerry admitted she would be inclined to jump ahead in the show’s timeline rather than depict the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. “I think it’s going to have been done, done, done,” she said. “You could [jump into the future]. You could go backwards. It’s such an interesting little universe. You really can put it anywhere in time, and I think the challenge of the show is coming up with that big subject.”
