McCarthy confirmed the new episodes will further explore Charlie and Jen’s mother-son relationship.
“Charlie had a lot of resentment toward his mom, and he blamed her for a lot. They had a lot of frustrations between each other,” he told PureWow. “But again, deep down, he really loves his mom, and he started to warm up to her a little bit more throughout the season.”
McCarthy warned that it won’t be an easy journey, adding, “There’s going to be a lot of work that needs to be done in repairing that relationship, because one of the biggest things that Charlie wants is to be trusted and treated like an adult. I don’t know how he’s going to be able to trust her.”
