While a second season of “Briarpatch” has not been confirmed, star Rosario Dawson was certainly feeling the show’s Season 1 finale. In an emotional interview on the Variety After-Show on Instagram Live, Dawson reflects on her time as power-suited investigator Allegra Dill in the show’s 10-episode run. 

“This story is really about seeing where someone’s come from and what they’ve gone through to get to where they are now,” Dawson says. “And looking in the mirror to see was it worth it and what are they going to do next?”

The 40-year-old also reveals her desire to join both the “Star Wars” and “Star Trek” universes. While she is set to play Ahsoka Tano in Season 2 of “The Mandalorian” on Disney Plus, she says her inner Trekkie is hoping to play Q. After those roles, she says she would retire from acting and focus on running for political office, another ambition the actor has mentioned.
