When it comes to the plot line, King said it's going to be a little intense.

"We kind of see things get a little climactic between myself and the characters played by Zendaya and Storm," said King.

There has been some recent drama outside the show with fans reacting as if King were actually the girls' mother.

"I'm not annoyed at all but they do know this is TV? This is not real," said King.

Due to the show and her mother's cancer diagnosis, King began a nonprofit,  Rose of Sharon, to help marginalized communities deal with overall wellness.

"Every so often I will get a heartfelt DM from a fan saying  how the show has helped them, how much they struggle with depression and anxiety," said King.
