Warning: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched Amazon’s comedy “Catastrophe” Season 2 in its entirety.
The Season 2 finale of “Catastrophe” went from the highest high — Rob (Rob Delaney) and Sharon (Sharon Horgan) having sex up against a bathroom in a park after having reconciled — to the lowest lows, when Rob found Sharon’s receipt for the morning-after pill that she bought because she wasn’t sure if she had sex with a man she met in a bar while hammered during their separation.
What will Rob do with this information? He opens his mouth to say something to Sharon and the screen cuts to the end credits, leaving fans to wonder if he’s going to confront her or not.
Horgan tells Vulture that if there is a Season 3, they will likely pick up right where Season 2 left off, “with that very syllable.”
But they’re worried about repeating themselves creatively, so Horgan suggests that that could mean “getting them to Boston … a whole new ream of characters.”
And that’s exactly what the show should do. London has been a wonderful setting for the show thus far, with Sharon’s family being mixed in and Rob feeling like a fish out of water. But now it might be time to shake things up. Rob is out of work at Season 2’s end, so perhaps he gets a job offer back in Boston and now it’s Sharon’s turn to feel like a fish out of water.
Plus, if it means more Carrie Fisher as Rob’s mom, all the better. She’s a monstrous delight.
