When asked how he felt about his return in Season 2 of “Raising Dion” during an interview on YouTube, Ritter replied, “I was very excited, cause I love the show so much. And I was also nervous, ’cause I knew that Pat had done some bad things.” The actor expressed that there’s “something about the end of the last season about being revealed, and everything is crazy, and then, you know, just being dead, or destroyed, or out.” He continued that he was excited to be able to rejoin the cast and to see where the character went.
Ritter elaborated about how interesting it is to come back to the role of Pat Rollins, considering that he was revealed to be a liar, manipulator, and murderer, and how the rest of the characters on the show would react to his return. Ritter added that he enjoys the villain role, as he is often cast in scenarios that require him to be friendly or funny, much like the first part of his character’s arc in the first season, but being able to be a “bad guy” is refreshing.
Season 2 of “Raising Dion” became available on February 1, 2022, so fans can finally begin to understand the nature of “The Crooked Man” and Rollins’ fall from grace.
