Following the exciting Season 2 finale in which a victorious Johnny Depp was awarded $15 million in damages after his “reputation” was dragged through the mud in a Washington Post editorial by ex-wife Amber Heard, the pair are reportedly shopping around Season 3 for a new jurisdiction in which to showcase their legal wranglings.
The success of Season 2 almost guarantees a bidding war for any future court proceedings. Experts agree, the American public’s appetite for intimate glimpses into the sordid lives of their favorite trashy celebrities is nowhere close to being satisfied.
“In times like these, when life is difficult and uncertain, people look to the stars. Average Americans love it when the stars offer them child rearing tips and marriage advice. They’re always looking to celebrities for moral guidance and spiritual direction. They cheer when celebrities slap each other in public. They admire the shameless sense of entitlement that comes with a career in the public eye. They’re relieved to hear that even the rich and famous sometimes defecate on the bed out of spite,” said an unnamed Netflix executive trying to develop a series with the toxic duo.
However, before any new deal can be finalized, Amber Heard must make a good faith down payment on the $15 million judgment. Attorneys for the actress are reportedly in negotiations with Depp’s legal team for a modest loan to pay the damages she owes him.
