The Season 3 Finale

An update here is overdue, so here it is. The first part of the Season 3 finale of Edict Zero – FIS, EP306 – “Horizons (I)” – was released on March 1rst on the website. The second part, “Horizons (II)”, was supposed to come out of preproduction this past week, but real life rudely intervened, as sometimes happens. I expect the dust to settle this weekend and for the final script to go out next week. Once that happens, production will promptly begin.

Another bit of news is that I have decided to produce a Season 4, which I will begin work on from the moment Season 3 comes to a close. To clear up any past confusion, the plan before now was to end the “Edict Zero – FIS” series with Season 3, but not the story which would continue in a three-part trilogy of features. Though Season 3 is going to answer some of the big questions, it was not going to wrap everything up to a story conclusion. That will be the function of the culmination in the trilogy.

The trilogy is still on, but it will be after a Season 4.

There’s nothing else to report right now except I enjoy reading fan reactions to EP306 and the series as a whole. I’m thankful for the fans and it will be my pleasure to continue the Edict Zero story into the future.

The Return of Edict Zero

‘Edict Zero – FIS’ will be returning. The process has just begun and all cast members have agreed to return to the show to reprise their roles. I don’t have specific details as to when production will begin or any release will happen, but there will be drips of news and progress updates on Edict Zero’s facebook page.

Click here to jump to it.

The Slipgate Nine blog won’t be updated until I have more concrete details and can speculate about dates. At the time of this entry, it’s in a preliminary development stage, dealing with story, scripts, direction of the series, and so forth.

Thanks to all the fans for the enthusiasm, for enduring the hiatus, and for your continued patience as the ball starts rolling again.

Latest Edict Zero Release: EP303 – “No Bounds”


Jack Kincaid here.

The third episode of Season 3 was just released on the Edict Zero website, which you can jump to by clicking on this: EP303 – “NO BOUNDS”. This is the longest episode in the series so far at 1 hour and 34 minutes, total running time. In addition to having its own arc, it closes the “interloper” arc started with EP302 – “INTERLOPERS” and tends to several of the wider ones in the series. This episode, I think, has journeyed to the heart of what Edict Zero is really about and I’m happy to have this ep out there.

Because this post is going to be the last for a few months, I might as well address what will be on the minds of listeners after this release. When will the next one happen?

EP304 is called “The Quondam Heart” and my best estimate right now is between late June and mid-July, possibly on the 8th. That’s a long time to wait, but I feel EP303 ended at a good place for a pause. There are life things that I need to tend to. I am also behind on writing and script detail, which is just as important for Edict Zero. I want to spend better time with that, as I’ve been feeling rushed and scattered between other things I juggle. In addition, on a technical level, I want time to experiment with new techniques so I keep riding the upward curve.

I hope for better regularity of releases in the future but I can’t speculate. What plans I express often shift to suit my situation with life, time, and my creative voices. The last three years have been pretty crazy with many twists and turns.

The good news that I do have is that there’s a novelette almost completed that is a prequel to Edict Zero, which will be made available in the future. At the moment, it’s a matter of venue. That’s really the first step of the Edict Zero universe branching out into other forms. I’ll post news when I have it.

Also EP304 will see the return of two beloved characters in Edict Zero – FIS. I say that in the hope of a reprieve for another wait. 😀

Cheers, everyone. I hope you enjoy EP304.
