While Poppy is still dealing with the events of the first season, Spencer teases in the featurette, “It’s her personal life that is a part of the case itself that needs to be solved. All of Poppy’s personal relationships are being affected by her needing to deal with what is damaging her.”

Micah also has a personal history with the rest of Poppy’s family. “The arcs of every character are very much defined,” Ron Cephas Jones, who plays Poppy’s father Shreve, tells TV Insider. “So that you really get a chance to actually now follow the arc of not only the character’s journey but the story’s journey as far as the mystery and the podcast goes.”

Mekhi Phifer who plays Poppy’s friend and security expert Markus tells us, “I think in Season 2, you really get to see the tree grow. The roots were laid, but then now you get to see the tree grow. You really get to delve into who these people are and what makes them tick.”
