The duo reflected on the year so far, their pleasantly surprising Emmy win, and the wildly imaginative story that plays out in Season 3. They also teased what might be next for the franchise, but you'll have to keep an eye out for more of our Season 3 and beyond spoilers in a future article. Stay tuned!
