"The show is sort of built on this idea that we’re all more similar than we’re being told to believe, and that if we just opened ourselves up to one another it would be met with a sense of community," says Segel. "And it occurred to me at some point when I was conceiving the idea: Do you actually mean that, Jason? Do you really believe that? And if so, then start with you. Prove it. And so that is what I started driving towards in the series, this ultimate ending to the themes of the show, like, 'Look, it’s okay to be yourself in front of other people.'" Segel adds: " The show is really hard and really fun to figure out, because it’s full of twists and turns, but at the same time I feel like each episode has a pretty clear emotional theme. And so building that so that each episode was its own self-contained music box but then also when you stack them all up next to each other they led inevitably to this finale was one of the most fun and difficult things to write. I had an amazing group of writers who took this leap of faith and helped me do this." ALSO: Segel on a potential Season 2: "The idea is that each season is stand-alone—and without giving too much away, each season would profile a specific thing."
