If you aren’t aware The Carmichael Show has begun filming it’s season 3 over at NBC. The show which made noise last year for taking on such real day issues looks to continue in that same spirit this time around. In a story first released by Deadline; Jerrod went on to comment about filming season 3 of the series and shared that a few important issues will be discussed like rape, shootings, and even more Cosby.
On what to expect in the new season, the show will tackle issues including mass shootings, body image, as well as the topic of today’s on-set table read: rape. Like in previous seasons, humor will be embedded within the seriousness, and nobody is off limits (today’s script read featured a reference to Birth Of A Nation director-star-producer Nate Parker). “We don’t approach anything with fear” but “as much honesty as we possibly can — that’s really the thought that goes into it, not being afraid to explore something,” Carmichael said, citing Norman Lear’s “fearless” work as inspiration to the approach. “There’s humor in everything; not saying that we should take these subjects lightly, but there can be humor mined from any tense or difficult situation.”.. Season 3 will also revisit past topics such as Cosby — Carmichael called it “the news story that keeps on giving” — viewed from different angles. “People learn and grow. Staying true to perspective a lot of times, your perspectives shift based on personal experience,” he said. “Characters continue to grow, and they have experiences that inform their lives. We can reverse points of views the way points of views get reversed in real life.”
