With news that ABC has renewed Eli Stone for a second season, one question has been over the role of George Michael. Would producers want to continue with that theme, or take the next season, and Eli, in a different direction?
Well – here’s the answer. George Michael will be part of Eli Stone Season 2, providing George’s schedule and filming schedules can be worked out. The issue that might cause problems is that George has time commitments that simply can’t be changed with his 25 Live US tour this summer. The producers of Eli Stone want George to be in the second season. So, my guess is – if it’s possible for them to work filming his parts around his touring schedule, they will. Where there’s a will, there’s usually a way – so I think people should be cautiously optimistic that something involving George will happen. Whether they’ll be time for George to do a “full episode”, like he did in season 1, though, we’ll just have to wait and see….
