This is the time of the season when things are finally winding down and I can finally catch a bit of a rest. Although there are still episodes to finish shooting, cuts to edit, visual effects to approve, and episodic music to review, the writing is done and that means my nights and weekends are (mostly) my own. I no longer have to obsess over plotting or run dialogue in my head when I’m in the shower, driving, or lying in bed. The script-in-progress no longer haunts me like a fevered dream. I’m free. Free! For maybe another week or two at which point I really have to start thinking about season 4.
As you’re all aware, I have a 5 year plan for Dark Matter and so far, so good. In the words of the inimitable Hannibal Smith –
And this season’s has come together quite nicely. Congratulations to me. Now, time to move on to my fourth 13-episode plan.
Same time last year, I made a list of the arcs I wanted to explore in season 3. They were:
The Blink Drive
The corporate war
The independent colonies
The alt. Marauder crew
In addition to a myriad of character arcs, revelations, and surprises.
Can’t wait for you to see what we have in store for you in season 3. Awaiting the official announcement of our premiere date and, while I can’t reveal it, I can tell you it’ll be sooner than you think!
Finally, I leave you with a Suji-related post. Me and my girl enjoying peanut butter –
