I don’t know much about that writer but even if she had the best of intentions and was being honest about the future to the best of her knowledge, it doesn’t really mean much when somebody higher than her makes a different decision. And it’s true that when people are promoting their series, they’ll say anything. I’d hope that they’ve learned with regards to the BYG trope, but you never know.
If I were you and I were in a sensitive state, I would go in warily or just hold off completely. It’s not going anywhere, if it turns out good like Saving Hope, you can always just watch at the end. 🙂
