Speaking to Indiewire, showrunner Naren Shankar has revealed that not only is the new season set to increase in scope as humanity moves out into the galaxy, but the shift from cable to streaming has also lifted broadcast restrictions.
“We’re in the second big movement in the books, a new chapter in humanity,” said Shankar. “We’re no longer constrained in the solar system. It’s how humanity deals with this vast new frontier. It’s going to be more awesome. We no longer have the language restrictions. [We can] curse like a sailor. We don’t have the nudity restrictions… and the 4K and HDR will look amazing on Amazon. We’re no longer constrained by a 43-minute box. We can put some air into it, let things breathe a little bit more. So we’re excited to be on Amazon Prime.”
