In fact, Arkin actually decided he was leaving the show shortly after the second season arrived on Netflix last year, and his absence will be written into the final season. Read More »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect.
