Season 2 had a lot of drama to unpack and Alex Levy is in the midst of it all.

After just having overcome the grief of losing Mitch, and suffering a breakdown, the season ends with Alex testing positive for COVID-19, which she picked up from her trip to Italy.

“It was relentless! Honestly, I did think at one point the writers were trying to kill me!” Aniston joked in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Rising Like A Phoenix

Former showrunner Kerry Ehrin explained her take on Alex experiencing symptoms, saying it was a symbolism for something more significant to her story.

“The fever to me was almost representative as a fire that burned her, and she rises out of it like a phoenix with a better sense of her true self and the person she wants to be,” Ehrin said in an interview.

Details about the upcoming season haven't been revealed yet but the show will most likely focus on the aftermath of Alex's COVID-19 illness, as well as tying up Bradley and Cory's loose ends.

There is also a possibility that season 3 will be backtracking to earlier days. Ehrin has previously hinted that the range of scenarios for the next season is endless.

"You could [jump into the future]. You could go backwards. It's such an interesting little universe. You really can put it anywhere in time, and I think the challenge of the show is coming up with that big subject," Ehrin explained.
