It’s funny. About a month ago it was the agony of “Oh, no! Will we get picked up?!”. Now, it’s the agony of “Oh, no! We got picked up!” Scripts to write. Stories to break. Plans to make. And what seemed so faraway back in May as we were wrapping up production on Dark Matter’s second season now seems alarmingly near as we gear up to begin prep in October for a mid-November start date! We got some crazy plans for the show’s third season, some truly audacious stories, and progressively bigger twists, turns and surprises in store. It will all build off the events of our final three episodes this season and, boy oh boy, things get pretty wild in Episodes 211-213 –
“Wish I’d Spaced You When I Had the Chance” (my buddy picture, an unlikely pairing I’ve been wanting to write since last hiatus).
“Sometimes In Life You Don’t Get To Choose” (which provoked the following email response from my writing partner Paul: “Phew, that’s some ending. I feel like maybe you’re working out some issues here. You might want to talk to someone about that.”).
“But First, We Save The Galaxy” (in which many of the story elements we set up in season 2, and “Stuff To Steal, People To Kill” in particular, dovetail in spectacular fashion).
It’s been a whirlwind season and we’re going to finish strong. First, with a double episode shot (211 and 212) next Friday September 9th and then, on Friday September 16th, it’ll be the finale. Alas, I’ll be in Japan for the latter but I’m sure I’ll be hearing your screams all the way across the Pacific.
