Kemp added: “Part of the journey of season two is absolutely going through and making decisions without the benefit of someone to call.”
Season two may see a growth in Tariq as he’s forced to fend for himself with enemies all around him.
She described Tasha as being Tariq’s “training wheels” and helped the character to strike out on his own which fans will see going forward.
Kemp teased TV Line, saying: “What I will just preview a little bit is that Tariq has done this thing, he’s made a decision to save her life, but he will have no control over where she is or what she’s doing.
“So, when we get to the beginning of season two, there’s definitely a feeling from Tariq of, ‘I would like to know where my mother is,’ and I think I’ll leave it with that.”
Although she wouldn’t be drawn on whether Naughton would be back as Tasha, she suggested there was always the potential for a return as Tasha wasn’t dead.
