Characters who joined the team in the second season like Dominic Fike who plays Elliot will also be seen in the next season. He himself confirmed his return on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.
The season-ending with Ashtray’s death during a police shootout might indicate Javon “Wanna” Watson’s exit from the show. But the character’s death is yet not confirmed.
