“It’s a little mysterious what Reid and Simmons are up to,” returning showrunner Erica Messer told TVLine Wednesday during the Television Critics Association press conference, “but they’re certainly not forgotten.”

Daniel HenneIndeed “Dr. Reids and I think Matt Simmons’ desks are still there, still have stuff on them…” the EP shared. “For example, if one of you had gone back [to the office after the pandemic], you still have stuff on your desk that was there for two years. So let’s definitely play that. but [Spencer and Matt] are not path Path.”

Commenting on the absence of the two actors, Messer said: “We hope that the team members who we finished the series with at CBS can come back and act at some point, but everyone has different projects. We started filming in August and will be done in December…so there was a short window of opportunity to try and get all of our friends to play.”
