In an April interview with the Associated
Press, Horgan revealed they had only scraped the surface with Mia. “We
wanted to tell more about that character. We wanted to flesh her out more and
give her a story and a reason for her behavior. And the only reason why we did
that is because Carrie made us want to do that,” she said, adding: “I miss her,
but I’ll miss her in our show, you know, I'll miss that character and
I’ll miss being able to tell that character’s story.”
Prior to her death after going into cardiac arrest on a
flight from the U.K. to Los Angeles, Fisher
was filming what would become her final appearance on Catastrophe.
But the Amazon series is not her only posthumous performance to be
released in 2017. Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which will see a larger
focus on Fisher’s iconic role as Leia, will hit theaters Dec. 15.

The recognition for Catastrophe follows
Fisher’s previous Emmy nominations for the HBO special Wishful
Drinking and a guest appearance on 30 Rock.
The 69th Emmy Awards, hosted by Stephen Colbert, will air
live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Sunday, Sept. 17,
starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS.
