Thursday’s finale revealed that Rob (Steven Good) had scammed Kelsey, leading her to find a new investor for her Inkubator, which she found in Reese Witherspoon.

The new partnership should see Kelsey move to Los Angeles and set up the potential spin-off that is no longer taking place.

“I think that’s pretty much off the table. [Kelsey moving to California] Sure, we could have set up the spin-off, but that’s also exactly how we wanted this to end,” said Star.

The spin-off series was first reported in May 2020, although it was apparently never a “deal done,” which Star even hinted at in an interview with Variety in April.

“We’re talking about it. It’s a big question mark if it’s going to happen,” Star revealed. “It could be great, but we never know if these things are going to happen until they do.”
