She told The Hollywood Reporter: "Just like the rest of the show, it's not exactly what you think it's going to be.
"This show will always be a show that explores the dark sides and the light sides of grief, loss, forgiveness, and friendship. So, suffice to say, there will be more darkness."

She also said there will be a "role reversal" of sorts.

"There's an evening of the score and there's a rebalancing that will take place and almost, in some ways, a role reversal." It's certainly cryptic but very intriguing.
