Honestly, it feels like mere months ago we’d received the call from Prodigy Pictures Jay Firestone informing us that Dark Matter was a go. And now, suddenly, here we are gearing up for the season 3. Our game plan is simple: outdo what we did the year before. I know, I know. Right now, some of you are thinking: “Unlikely!” After this Friday’s Dark Matter double-header, eve more of you will think: “Impossible!”. But here’s something I know that you don’t…
The stories, the character reveals, the narrative ramp-up, and the emblematic Dark Matter twists, turns, shocks, and surprises awaiting you next year. But FIRST –
We save the galaxy!
Well, that’s the plan anyway.
Speaking of plans, I have two more days on the home front, scrambling to finish up my pass on this script, before Akemi and I are Japan-bound for two glorious weeks of eating. And whatever else we manage to find time for. Maybe visiting her family in Osaka. Then, October 24th, we are back in town and I have roughly a week to ten days to get my shit together before we head to Toronto for the beginning of prep. Rumour has us starting production in late November – which should allow us to shoot our first three episodes before the holiday break.
I never thought I’d say this but I am actually looking forward to going back to Toronto.
But first things first. Friday night! 7 pm PDT/10 EDT. TWO back to back episodes!
