EXCLUSIVE: Erica-Marie Sanchez Reveals What's to Come on Season 2 of CBS' 'The Inspectors'

Erica Marie Sanchez- The Inspectors

The show is definitely about trying to educate young people, what do you wish that you would have learned when you were younger?

Trust yourself, love yourself and be confident with what you already have because what you already have and already are is more than enough. A lot of people don’t realize that loving yourself is the best kind of love that you can have. I think once you realize that you were made and created with everything you could possibly ever need and once you love all of those things then there is no way you can go wrong.

What’s something that you want your fans to know about you?

The Inspectors is my first big role and I’ve been working for a very long time and it took me a very long time to get here. I know I have so much more to do and I’ve just crossed the threshold but I’ve been working towards this since I was 8-years-old. A lot of things haven’t gone the way I expected them to or planned them to. I took a chance and I left my really incredible education so that I could follow this dream of being an actress. I don’t want to say that I let people down but I definitely haven’t taken the conventional route to getting to where I want to be. I guess what I’m trying to say is that life isn’t always going to take you where you think it will but I’ve had to have a lot of faith that things are going to go the right way.

In the first season, you got to write and sing your song, will we get to hear more music from you in the second season and in 2017?

It was really exciting for me to be able to sing in the first season. That wasn’t something they were looking for in the character of Veronica but once they realized that I was comfortable and excited to sing they were able to write it into an episode, which is really awesome. Since season two wrapped, I moved to California and I have a really great roommate that has encouraged me to start putting my own words down on paper and seeing what inspiration I can find as far as writing my own music. That is something that I’ve wanted to do since I was young. These past couple of months, I started writing lyrics and music, which has been really fun for me to get back into. Hopefully, in the next few months I will be able to act on it and start making it come to life.

What can you tell us we can expect to see in the rest of season two?

It premiered on October 1, 2016 so we’ve had a couple of episodes’ air already. You will see a lot happening between Preston and Veronica and their romance. They go on a date finally; they finally have their first kiss so that’s going all sorts of places. After season one, Preston had that feeling in his leg so he starts this journey into a therapy group and trying to see if his situation can get any better. Veronica is following her journalistic passion; Noah is trying to follow his dream of being a film maker even though his parents aren’t supportive. Aside from solving all of the cases that she does every week, she actually gets a promotion which is a huge deal but the decision might force her to move. She has a huge decision to make between staying in D.C. for Preston or moving to take on her new job and keep moving her career forward. I think we did a really good job with this second season so I hope everybody feels the same way and is excited to tune in.

Is there anything else you want to add?

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and to stay tuned because I will hopefully have more things for you guys to check out very soon. [Laughs].  

Check out the rest of The Inspectors episodes on Saturdays at 11 a.m. on CBS.
