"It's night and day," Cardenas tells GameSpot of Sutter, who was fired in 2019 over his abrasive behavior, paving the way for co-creator Elgin James to become sole showrunner. "It's like the best thing that could have ever happened for the show. The environment that we get to work (in), it's such a fun--it's a welcoming, comforting environment. You know, everybody's excited to come to work. I personally feel like I'm at an advantage, finally. I feel like I'm put in the position to succeed. I feel like the writing is meant for me. I feel like I'm not having to force dialogue, you know? I feel like the writing just rolls off my tongue now." Cardenas also points out that the show's new leadership structure under James allows everyone's work to shine. "Elgin is such an amazing creator and writer and, you know, he creates this familial bond on set," Cardenas said. "So again, it makes it welcoming. And everybody's proud of what's being done, everybody feels their voice is heard. And what more could you want? You know, what more could you want from a creator and director?"
