No “Big Love” Until January


goodwinWe knew the WGA strike caused a delay, but it’s longer than we’d hoped. Kristin at E Online has it straight from show runner, Will Scheffer:

Unfortunately the strike really pushed back production on season three. Our fans will have to wait until January for our new season, which just started production. It’s a great season, though, and I hope it will be worth the wait.

Margene has a remarkable season. First off, the baby’s here, and she’s beautiful. But Margie’s focus is on work. She’s in love with selling for Weber Gaming, but the family’s circumstances force her to sacrifice her ambition. If I said anything more it would be a spoiler.

Originally, there was hope that it would continue in the fall, but now it’s pushed to 2009. I think “Big Love” works best as a summer show, but I’d rather not wait an entire year, so I will take what I can get.

Will also confirms what I expected, Margene’s pregnancy is continuing during the hiatus. Do you feel cheated that so much time will have passed off screen? As I’ve said before, I enjoy the character development on the show, and with so much time and events passing, I fear that these will be different characters come January. What do you think?

UPDATE: According to Margene’s Blog, the baby has been born.
