“We knew we had a popular show, something people really adored, but not this much,” continues the actor, who’s known for being wildly more humble and affable than the hedonist he’s played with sexy delight for three seasons (exec producer Ildy Modrovich calls him “all heart”). “I never felt like the numbers on Fox ever really reflected the actual popularity of the show. And that is just modern TV: People find the way to watch a program the way they want to watch it and this outpouring has suggested exactly that.”
Noting that “talks are happening” about possible new homes for the show, Ellis stresses that “it’s not going to be an instantaneous thing like Brooklyn Nine-Nine was. It’s worth reiterating that to the fans. But we’re not giving up. If anything this has really galvanized us and picked us up from the floor.”
