"(It is) such a relief. It's so exciting. I've been waiting for a long, long time. If there is a movie, I think we've kind of caught the audience up from 2006 to 2012. I think that was the purpose of this series," said de Rossi. "And now by the end of this series we'll be in current time. That's all I know."
