In addition to answering the questions posed by the finale, Yost says the challenge of Season 2 will be creating new story arcs. Prolific author Elmore Leonard, who created the Raylan Givens character and serves as an executive producer of the show, is working on a new short story, which Yost says may help that cause.
“I’m going to see it in the next few weeks,” Yost says of Leonard’s new work. “We spoke on the phone and he just read me three pages from the story. There was just a moment when I thought, ‘Seriously? I’m listening to Elmore Leonard read me new stuff?’ In my line of work, it just doesn’t get much better than that. If there’s any way we can use it, we will. He’s not following along with the Boyd story; it’s a whole new story.” —TV GUIDE
