The series was originally a partnership between AGBO and the screenwriting collective Midnight Radio, consisting of Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec. However, they departed the show during production in 2021 due to creative differences with the Russos, and David Weil took over as the new showrunner. This change of direction led to extensive reshoots in 2022.Richard Madden said of the plot and his character: “There are multiple characters and multiple storylines that all intertwine, and I personally play a character who is an amnesiac—eight years of his life, he’s basically become a new person. There’s a journey of discovering who he was before the accident happened, and he no longer remembers anything. It’s a clash between the life that he’s been living for eight years, and the life that he used to live.
