NBC’s Smash will be returning in just seven weeks! For those of you who are fans of the show, this is very exciting news of course. However, you will also be excited to know that NBC recently posted a behind-the-scenes video for season two.
This video gives fans an exclusive look at what is to come in season two. Plus, the cast talks a bit about the “new energy” Smash has going into the new season as they have a new showrunner and executive producer, Joshua Safran. Watch the behind-the-scenes video here.
Safran recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly and he revealed a little bit about season two and simple changes that were made to the overall feeling of the show. In the interview he states: “There’s no bowling alley sing-alongs. There are fantasy sequences, but so far not on the level of the Bollywood cover.”
Safran also addresses what was like replacing Theresa Rebeck and heading into a second season: “Coming into a show second season where there was so much discussion about positives and negatives about the first season gives you that rare chance to step back and go, ‘What can I change?’ So we were able to [revisit] things like the scarves. We address it head on.” Finally, he wanted to let fans know that things are not going to drastically change and he wanted to remain loyal to the overall feeling of the show: “As a viewer, I really loved the show. It’s literally just reaching in and moving the tiny pieces that weren’t connecting, the gears that weren’t fully aligned. But it’s small shifts. If you loved Smash last year, you are not seeing a radically different show. And that was important to me because I loved Smash last year.”
