The 10-part drama explores the tense aftermath of two racially charged shootings in a small North Carolina town. The cast includes Sanaa Lathan, Stephan James, Helen Hunt, Richard Dreyfuss, Will Patton, Aisha Hinds, Conor Leslie, and Stephen Moyer.
In the interview, Prince-Bythewood said they planned Shots Fired as a limited series:
We came at it as a 10-hour film and we had the opportunity to tell this story over 10 hours.”
But is there still a chance of a second season? Bythewood says maybe:
If we decided we all wanted to do it again, we could.”
