Emilio is not returning to the show due to vaccine policy
Since the dangers of COVID-19 have gone and are mild in most of the countries, people are avoiding any sort of risks. Many of the entertainment industries have also made the policies accordingly. Therefore, “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers” crew have also decided that everyone on the sets has to get vaccinated. So, anyone who is not vaccinated is not at all allowed to be on the sets.
Therefore, the rule is for everyone and thus, the creators have decided to terminate his character. But there is also news that Emilio has exited the show due to creative differences.
Emilio through his reps has said that he is not ready to comply with the policy
Many sources have claimed that Emilio has declined to accept the policy made by the creators. The script is now being adjusted according to the character termination of Emilio. Netflix has also made Zone A vaccines mandatory for all the shows. Same like that, US Disney TV shows are also asked to set a proper policy for the vaccine.
Is it the end of the road for Emilio’s character?
Certainly, his character will be eliminated from the series. Many sources also say that he was not happy with the way his character was written. The creators were planning to write two scripts with which they were supposed to proceed in 2022. Moreover, the production has now decided to do minor changes to remove the character accordingly without hampering the storyline.
