    “The series will hit out TV sets sometime in 2017.”

    Really? Then why is the show casting now – a year later?

      I already replied. The original description was added, probably for the pilot. The notice does say season 3. I tend to update existing notices and missed that. It is a casting notice for season 3.

      LOL, the casting notices actually get updated with the new casting needs, the original show descriptions… not always updated. The casting notice is current. The description is most likely for last year. Will fix it. Thanks for the heads up!
