Writer’s Room: Returning to Five Points
Series writer and producer Kyle Bradstreet talks returning to the world of ‘Copper’ for Season Two.
1. to go back or come back again
I’m tempted to write that Season Two is our collective return to Copper – to Five Points, to 23rd Street, to Carmansville – but the truth is… we never left. Once one becomes buried in the world of Copper, it’s a difficult place to leave. From the moment we wrapped shooting on Season One to that September day when we finished editing Episode Ten, stories, scenes, plot points – infinite possibilities for Season Two encompassed our minds. And then, a month later, we got the greenlight to begin writing Season Two. Time to put those possibilities on paper.
‘Copper’ Season 2: Donal Logue as General Brendan and Tom Weston-Jones as Detective Kevin Corcoran
Today I stand inside a massive soundstage in Toronto – the land where Copper lives. I walk the streets of 1865 (a new season, a new year) and, once again, it feels as if I’ve stepped back in time. I’m elated to reunite with our phenomenal cast and crew – and to welcome those who are new into the Copper family. The journey continues. Stay tuned. It’s going to be one hell of a ride.
