The showrunners have said the show will continue to be about racism and bigotry, and that its central message of tolerance is the same as the book, which is a cautionary tale of a white man in a black community facing the same challenges.
The showrunner also said that they hope the show has a broader reach.
Henson said in an interview with BuzzFeed News that she and her team will continue working on new episodes.
“It’s not over,” she said.
“The show is alive.
We’re working on more episodes and more episodes are coming out.”
The show will end on October 4, and Henson is expected to host a special event for fans at the TCA Awards in Los Angeles on Monday.
