Isaac is not returning next season. That’s going to be a big surprise for a lot of people.
Daniel Sharman came to us, much like Crystal did, and said that he wanted to go out for pilot season and for movies and try something new.
He specifically asked that we not kill off Isaac, so that he could have the chance to return. He said he loved the role so much that he wanted to be able to come back if there was a chance. But he was at a position where he wanted to stretch his creative wings and I said to him, ‘Well, if we can’t convince you to come back, we’ll definitely leave the door open for you.’"
