Edict Zero – Season 3 – Finale Episodes

The latest news about the Season 3 finale of Edict Zero – FIS is that what was originally to be one episode has been split into two episodes, EP307 – “Horizons (II)” and EP308 – “Horizons (III)”, due to its gargantuan size. Both episodes are officially in the production phase. I expect that Horizons (II) will come out next month. I hope for early in the month, but I can’t say for sure. Yet. As for Horizons (III), the end finale, I hope for the end of next month, but it may be in the first two weeks of July. No later. That’s an imperative. I know that you will agree with my sentiment of “the sooner, the better”.

I expect to have a firm date for 307 in about two weeks.

What happens after Season 3 is a break, during which I will be making a move, resettling, and preparing for the start of Season 4, for which all the main cast will be returning as far as I know and there will be some special guests making “appearances” for that season. Let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves, though.

As always, I thank the fans for their continued support. Also, to address what I thought was self-evident, files for Edict Zero have been mirrored by many sites and evidently are floating around various sharing services and the like. That is AOK. That’s completely in the spirit of the Creative Commons License. It’s meant to be shared freely, spread as far and wide as you desire by whatever means. As long as people aren’t profiting off it, it’s all good. Thumbs up.

Thanks, everyone. Keep an eye on the facebook page or the website page in the coming weeks as that’s where the release dates will be announced, when they’re announced. There won’t be another post here until EP307 comes out.

Cheers!

Progress Update #1 – Edict Zero

I said I would toss up another post about the progress of Edict Zero’s return, so here it is. There has been a lot of script reworking going on, mindful of not just of the next episode itself but of the totality of the series and where it’s headed. The big picture is of monstrous pertinence.

EP306-EP307 has probably been rewritten and gutted about a dozen times over the past six months. The work was not continuous during that time frame as life intervened with major events, traditional employment, the magazine podcasts, and, of course, my post-production gigs for The Apocalypse Triptych audiobook series.

Originally, there was a much larger story arc planned, one which could have extended into ten or more seasons, but that’s indicative of a kind of madness. From such madness often arises ambition too excessive to be realistic (unless some incredible wealth falls in my lap). What I don’t want to do is put the fans into a situation where a conclusion to the story may never be reached and leave it forever dangling at some point farther down the road.

What I can tell you for sure is that the next release(s) will bring Season 3 to an end. The structure of what will come thereafter is still up in the air, as the pros and cons are weighed of another season of smaller episodes, including monster-of-the-week ones to explore different aspects of Edict Zero, or go straight to how I planned to end EZ: with a trilogy of two-hour feature lengths that would be comparable to movies–sans the visuals, obviously.

I expect to reach that decision in mid-November when the production phase actually starts rolling.

I wish there was more to report right now. In a week, I should have more to say.

Cheers.

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.

Cheers.

Update on EP303 – “No Bounds”

Hi everyone,

Jack Kincaid here.

The next episode of Edict Zero – FIS, EP303 – “No Bounds”, is slated for release on or before April 24th. I expect it will be before. I chose April 24th with an abundance of caution. It’s better to have an early release than a late one. That way, it’s a pleasant surprise.

Post-production of the episode enters final layering this weekend. The preview will probably happen in two weeks or so.

There’s really nothing else to report right now. Thanks to all listeners for your patience. EP303 will be worth the wait in so many ways. I promise.

Cheers.

–Jack
