"We had written the whole season before COVID," says Kelly. "The ending tag was the only thing that we changed or added. We kind of hemmed and hawed about it...But our show exists in reality, as stupid as it can be at times. We really do like to satirize and parody pop culture and the entertainment industry, and it feels like everything about that has changed because of the pandemic. The way people audition, the way people work, the way people date, the way society functions. If we didn't acknowledge that, our show would move farther and farther away from reality in a way that would start to get stressful."
