Cry from the heart of Guy Jodoin

The actor also spoke to broadcasters because the approval of the third season would not be done quickly enough for his liking.
Let the productions breathe, let them take flight. Please, there are so many people working upstream on these shows, I hope we don’t just care about ratings., a conclu Guy Jodoin.
