Showrunner Spencer Hudnut, in an interview with TV Line opened up about what to expect. "Three months, and I would say, ironically, that Jason is probably in the most stable place," he said, talking about the time that has passed from the events of season 4 and t because of all the work he did on himself last year. He is becoming an even better, all-around leader, more of a sheep dog inside the wire and outside the wire. He’s kind of more Obi-Wan than Luke Skywalker now, but he’s in a good place."
