Just out of curiosity . . . How can Hudson's character is hardly a 'threat' to Ivy and Karen personally, unless Derek and co decide to be really out their with their recasting of the Marilyn role. I think it's more that she and a lot of the new characters are tied into this new musical, which is a threat to Bombshell as a whole.


since there is a new showrunner maybe he changed he changed their mind on Julia getting pregnant


With Julia possibly pregnant..........why no Frank and Michael????? Maybe she isn't pregnant....


Can't wait, loved the first season.
