Showrunner Kristen Reidel spoke to TVLine about how season 6 will revert to the old formula. "We’ve moved away a bit from the giant, multi-episode disaster," she told the outlet. "Those are a little hard to find once you’ve done an earthquake and a tsunami," she said. In addition, viewers will be keen to see how things unfold between Bobby (Peter Krause) and Athena (Angela Bassett) after the two got married in the last season. Reidel teased about how it pans out for the duo saying, "Athena’s going to face a bit of a challenge in the early part of the season," but will have the support of her new husband to help her get through.
