What Will Happen In Season 2 of Paradise City?
In 2021, showrunner Ash Avildsen revealed to EW, “With Cameron, his character really is the heartbeat for the audience. We’re all going on this ride with him as he discovers the world as an underdog. We’ll have to find someone amazing who can hopefully carry the character.”
Avildse continued, “I mapped out like six seasons before we even shot this, so his character, Simon, is the driving force as the story continues. So we would have to recast, and I hope audiences are emotionally prepared for that. It’s something you hope you never ever have to even think about, much less experience as a writer and director. Hopefully we get another season and we find someone that can bring the character back into the story.” Ash Avildsen recalls Cameron Boyce, who unfortunately died of epilepsy in 2019 just at the age of 20, as “the epitome of a superstar: professional, kind, charismatic, and loving.”
“You couldn’t be in a bad mood when he was in the room,” he added. “He had this infectious energy to him. The best word I have to describe him is magical. He made you excited to be in the room. No matter what we asked of him, he was always a team player. And his performance really speaks for itself.”
