Producer Mark Wahlberg previously said they needed to do a film. He explained, “We always felt like it was a movie, but we had to just make these 30-minute episodes. That was one of the frustrating things. It always felt like we left the audience wanting more, which is a good thing in doing television. I think its story and its characters were a world people really missed and really enjoyed.”
