Series News




News on DC Universe Direct to Video Movies, DC Animated Series, DC Animated Shortfrom Series and related topics will be posted as well as information on new releases of past series. In most cases a link will accompany each headline back to the original article. News on the DCAU originates from animation and comic book related news sites, personal staff forums, blogs, or comic book conventions. Fans beware, in some cases, false news does get spread among the Internet.

Need to find older news or update information? Check out the Archives. For shows, shorts or movies that are no longer in active production such as Young Justice, all of the news about it is only located in the Young Justice section and not this news page. Also to note, for this news page, on the 15th and end of each month, I do delete older news if it has been revealed. For instance, if a May 5 news item reveals a new voice actor and role and the episode he actor guest stars in airs on May 10 then I will delete it on May 15 and the news item will only be on the show's news page and not this main news page.

  • June 30, 2021: James Tucker was first approached for Justice League Infinity well into the home quarantine era of the pandemic, he wasn't sure about doing it at first just because if it was right to do it without Dwayne McDuffie and Bruce Timm, he approached it as what would the show have done had it continued, he recommended bringing in J.M. DeMatteis, DeMatteis does the lion's share of the writing, Tucker describes his duties more like what he did as a producer on JLU - a consultant suggesting ideas, talking about the threads left hanging, this is how this can tie in, tweaking a line - rather than as a co-writer, watching Justice League vs. Fatal Five helped convince him to agree to do the comic, and a bit of the paranoia from the pandemic translated into the comic.

  • July 6, 2021: Interview with James Tucker and J.M. DeMatteis about Justice League Infinity. Andrew Marino pitched a premise to Tucker that intrigued him and he came on board. When Marino talked about the multiverse idea, Tucker remember one of the thoughts the Justice League Unlimited crew had an idea to send the League into space on a quest in case they were renewed again. Tucker saw kernels of that idea in Marino's pitch and DeMatteis fleshed it out. The theme of identity runs parallel with Amazo and J'onn in this series. Series will touch on Batman and Wonder Woman and John Stewart, Shayera Hol, and Vixen. Series is more focused on the core 7 than the whole League. There is an upcoming issue that Ethen Beavers just turned in that gets very Kirby-esque and is centered on Wonder Woman. CBR Article

He and Tucker "took those characters and pumped them up and expanded them and they’ve become very, very important, especially a few central characters on that other team, become very, very important to the story." There's another AU Justice League that he had so much fun with, he'd love to spin them off into their own series. Darkseid appears but may be an AU version. AIPT Article

  • May 7, 2019: Five new DC Showcase shorts will release over 2019-2020. They will feature Sgt. Rock, Death, Phantom Stranger, Adam Strange, and Batman: Death In The Family. Still of Rock included. Death In The Family will be a long-form animated short anchoring a compilation set releasing in late 2020. Each short opens with a new, live-action branding sequence with easter eggs. Sgt. Rock is executive produced and directed by Bruce Timm and a script by Louise Simonson & Walter Simonson and Tim Sheridan. Battle-weary Sgt. Rock thought he saw everything that World War II can dish out. But he is in for the surprise of his life when he is assigned to lead a company consisting of legendary monsters into battle against an unstoppable platoon of Nazi zombies. Voice cast is Karl Urban as Sgt. Rock, Keith Ferguson, William Salyers and Audrey Wasilewski. Adam Strange is produced and directed by Butch Lukic, story by Lukic, and written by J.M. DeMatteis. On a rugged asteroid mining colony, few of the toiling workers are aware that their town drunk was ever anything but an interplanetary derelict. But when the miners open a fissure into the home of a horde of deadly alien insects, his true identity is exposed. He is space adventurer Adam Strange, whose heroic backstory is played out in flashbacks as he struggles to save the very people who have scorned him for so long. Voice cast is Charlie Weber as Adam Strange, Roger R. Cross, Kimberly Brooks, Ray Chase and Fred Tatasciore. Inspired by Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman," Death is produced and directed by Sam Liu and written by J.M. DeMatteis . Vincent, an artist with unresolved inner demons, meets a mysterious girl who helps him come to terms with his creative legacy... and eventual death. Voice cast includes Leonardo Nam as Vincent, Jamie Chung as Death, Darin De Paul, Keith Szarabajka and Kari Wahlgren. The Phantom Stranger is executive produced and directed by Bruce Timm and is written by Ernie Altbacker. Set in the 1970s, the short follows young adult Jess as she joins her friends at a party in a dilapidated mansion hosted by the mysterious Seth. When odd things begin to happen to Jess and her friends, the Phantom Stranger intervenes to save her from a dreary fate. Voice cast is Peter Serafinowicz as The Phantom Stranger, Michael Rosenbaum as Seth, Natalie Lander, Grey Griffin and Roger Craig Smith. All five new DC Showcase shorts include Jim Krieg as co-producer, Amy McKenna as producer, and Sam Register as executive producer. WF Article

In preparation for breaking the story with Ernie Altbacker and Jim Krieg, he re-read Phantom Stranger comics and happened to notice the first issue of the second series was published in 1969. Everything clicked after that. Woodstock, The Manson Family, the Generation Gap, the first Led Zeppelin album, the first Alice Cooper album, Flower Power, the first issue of Vampirella, "Turn on, tune in, drop out" Psychedelics phrase, the first season of Scooby Doo, and the first season of The Brady Bunch got mashed up. At his first record, Peter Serafinowicz said, "So I'm gonna do this with my own accent, right?" and the British accent worked with Phantom Stranger. Michael Rosenbaum asked Timm want he wanted for the Seth character. Timm described Seth as a cross between Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin and Jim Morrison of The Doors with David Cassidy's hair. Rosenbaum recalled Morrison's "I am the Lizard King - I can do anything..." Animesuperhero Bruce Timm post

The delay in the release of the movies stems from Warner Bros. thinking Matt Reeves was going to use The Long Halloween for The Batman but then his story went in a different direction, Ackles on being cast, Nathanson on duality and the other actresses, Lukic talks about being a guest on a meeting and volunteering to adapt Long Halloween, Sheridan on adapting, Nathanson on not reading the comic first, on Calendar Man and David Dastmalchian, Ackles on finding the voice and filtering out the Texan accent, Lukic thought Long Halloween was the only movie he was doing so he was going to ask Tim Sale to do some pre-production work but things changed with James Tucker departing the supervising producer role and the executives asked for a style that was going to carry over several movies, Lukic followed Sale's design of Gotham City and use of light, Nathanson and Ackles on voice acting vs. live action acting, and Ackles on the fight efforts recording.

  • June 24, 2021: Interview with Tim Sheridan. He had a few months to prep before writing and got to meet with Jim Krieg and Butch Luckic and also with friends who were fans of the comic, the ending of part one as a resolution or cliffhanger, following the two sided coin, will learn more about the coin in Part Two and its history ties into the movies, Batman not being so infallible because he's still young and in year two, Catwoman's equipment line, setting up the family arc with how Halloween is like at the three houses, realizing scenes he added were homages to other Loeb-Sale stories, lift the Mickey chase from a flashback to a sequence, cutting the jail house switch with Harvey in a rubber mask was easy because the scene had to be truncated and overall felt the story needed Harvey to be injured in the explosion and not Gilda, getting to sit in on Josh Duhamel recording, Sheridan had no actor in mind for Harvey, on Jensen Ackles voicing Batman and Bruce, Naya Rivera giving Catwoman depth and dimension instead of a cliche femme fatale, and writing more Calendar Man.

  • December 6, 2020: A 70s story was always in the back of Bruce Timm's head. When he was a teenager, pop culture was martial arts movies like Bruce Lee and Blaxploitation like Shaft, Superfly, Jim Brown, Jim Kelly, and he wanted to do a mash up. A comic called Kung Fu Fighter that came out at the time was basically that. They decided early on not to do a straight up Batman movie and make it an ensemble piece and get to explore the others in the cast. Lady Shiva loses it when her sword is stolen. Richard Dragon's design was influenced by the cover of Dennis O'Neill's Kung Fu Fighters novel where he was depicted as Asian and more like Bruce Lee than the white man he became in the actual comics. The crew tried to be specific with fighting forms and poses for the characters. Jeremy Adams and Jim Krieg tried to hard to use a lot of 70s lingo. Timm added bits too like one of Ben Turner's line was 'I'm done!' and he expanded it to 'I'm done, baby!' as a nod to Richard Roundtree. They went through 20 composers and narrowed it to three. They didn't want the music to come off like a parody of the 70s. Joachim Horsley was chosen ultimately. Michael Jai White made sure Ben sounded like he was in the 70s and differentiate that from his modern take on Ben that he did on Arrow. The movie doesn't have much Batman and it was a conscious choice to see him more as Bruce Wayne. CCXP Day 3 Panel, 5:57:10-6:15:56 mark

They explained there wasn't any room to add in Katana. DC persisted. Jeremy Adams looked up the Soultaker on the DC Wiki and learned it was one of two mystic swords forged at the same time but the other never did show up in the comics so take a cue from the Stormbringer and Mournblade from the Elric books, the Soulbreaker took the place of its sister sword, the Soultaker in the movie. DC still thought it would be really neat for Katana to appear but approved the change. AnimeSuperhero post

  • August 23, 2020: 45 minute recording of the IGN panel posted. Looked at Superman For All Season but didn't get anything then used American Alien for inspiration like the pre-Superman costume and Lobo then Tim Sheridan put his twist on it. Once they figured out when the story took place, they also looked at Birthright. Biggest directive from Lukic was to make the movie smaller in scale like the Richard Donner movies and see Superman rise from those kind of character interactions. It was meant to be more of an indie movie and more about character. The movie isn't an origin story more like Act 2. Themes explored include how the world affects Superman, identity, and truth to one's self. Sam Register told Butch Lukic to to something different so he went in an opposite direction of anime and used thick and thin lines like a comic. Chris Palmer convinced Lukic of using Flash and other things. Otto Schmidt's art style gave Lukic some confidence with animating this look but the overseas animation studio had problems at first so it was a style that adapted over time. Some points have broken lines like traditional hand drawn animation. Rudy Jones is an everyman you can sympathize with. Ike Amadi used his immigration from Nigeria to inform his take on Martian Manhunter. Three of the main characters are ones who are the last of their race. The cast was told to treat it like they were acting in live action. There is an easter egg in the scene when Martha gives Clark his costume. IGN YouTube

  • August 31, 2020: Interview with Butch Lukic. Decided to go in a different direction from the bulky Parasite designs and used Evangelion as a reference point. Otto Schmidt submitted four designs for Lobo: a straight hair, short hair, mohawk, and the classic look that winded up being chosen. Schmidt submitted five looks for Lois, including the leather jacket that was chosen and a nice business suit. Lukic decided to use a rejected look for Lois' casual appearance when she visits Clark at his apartment. A red haired Lex Luthor was considered and Schmidt did a rough form of it. Considered adapting from Man For All Seasons like the part when teenage Clark is arrested but it would have stretched the movie. Hall of Justice Podcast Episode 198
  • September 2, 2020: Interview with Butch Lukic and Tim Sheridan. The genesis of the story was a collaboration between Butch Lukic, Jim Krieg, and Tim Sheridan. They decided to try a Superman story but not exactly starting from the beginning. Instead Superman has been in Metropolis for about year trying to make his way in the world of journalism while trying to help people without revealing himself. The imagery of Calrk wearing goggles and a leather jacket was influenced from American Alien. Lukic went back and forth through email with Otto Schmidt on character design since he was new to animation. Jon Suzuki and Dusty Abell changed it so it was fit for animation. The French animation studio JSBC that worked on the Lastman cartoon was also an influence on design. How does Clark approach being an alien and how does he accept that and how is he accepted by the world are part of the story. As far as Lobo, the swearing and the sexism, appropriate or inappropriate is about as far as Lukic took it because the movie would be PG-13. He did self-censor when it came to swearing. Tim Sheridan wanted to subvert expectations and present Clark Kent at an emotional crossroads of trying to figure out if he should be truthful since Clark is someone who is always about truth and justice. During the writing, their first instinct wasn't to write it as an allegory for immigration nor did it drive the start of the process but there was no way around the topic for a Superman story with Lobo and Martian Manhunter in it. They wanted talk about what it means to be an outsider and to be looking at the rest of the world because it was much more basic and something universal that they thought everybody would be able to identify with.

  • October 6, 2017: Summary of panel. It includes more characters than seen in the original comic, many suspects who could be Jack the Ripper, not sure yet if rating will be PG-13 or R, at least one sequence that makes you squirm a little bit, not a direct adaptation of Mike Mignola's visual style but the crew took some visual cues the comics and fused that with their traditional animation styles, tried to get as much shadow as possible on Jack the Ripper, first clip has Batman attacking the criminal that's taken charge of the boys and made them pickpockets, and directs them to go to an orphanage and turn around their lives, there's a real emotional arc for Bruce, Selina is an actress/adventurer, and inspired by Sherlock Holmes character Irene Adler and is an equal to Bruce Wayne, they investigate the tragedy together, second clip shown is of Batman and Selina Kyle fighting Jack the Ripper in a slaughterhouse, Alan Burnett said he always wanted to set a scene in a slaughterhouse, movie isn't aiming for historical accuracy, crew are fans of the show Penny Dreadful, Sister Leslie (Thompkins) makes a strong presence in the movie, and the movie has DC Comics Easter eggs, Jack the Ripper Easter Eggs and Sherlock Holmes Easter eggs.

  • April 30, 2019: Michelangelo atop the Tyrannosaurus Rex in the Batcave and riding a skateboard and bumping into Alfred will be in the movie. Batman will be a little more serious than the Turtles so that there's contrast and the Turtles to be a little more serious than they were the 80's cartoon. Andy Kuhn drew the preliminary designs for the movie with lead character designer Steven Choi coming in and making Kuhn's designs more animation friendly. There will be direct homages to the 1990 film such as the shot of Shredder when he first confronts the Turtles replicated exactly when he first appears in this movie and there will be references to the Turtles in Time Super NES video game. One of the mandates from Nickelodeon was not to use the existing actors from the then current TMNT animated series. Baron Vaughn was always Halpern-Graser and Jones' first choice. Gary Miereanu came up with the notion of Troy Baker voicing both Batman and Joker. There is a post credits scene that teases a possible sequel. Comics Beat Article

  • December 1, 2019: Interview with cast and crew. Jennifer Coyle talks about taking the "DNA" of the Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti version, using the New 52 and Mad Love as touchstones, and incorporating her pink and blue hair from the Suicide Squad run. Shane Glines talks about the mandate not to over-sexualize Harley's design so she went through the most design iterations and making sure her body language wasn't a doll pose. Justin Halpern says the 2016 pitch was like a female version of Ferris Bueller's Day Off with Harley as Ferris and Ivy as Cameron Frye. Rick and Morty and Arrested Development are also cited as comedic influences. There was little restrictions except after 22 F-bombs in the pilot, the studio put a cap of 8 to 9 per episode and the studio was protective of Batman. Coyle recalls a board the show executives nixed because it had Batman with a sign taped to his back with the effs bats joke. The crew was cognizant of violence so Harley only kills universally despised people like bankers and henchmen. There was an excised idea of Harley tearing off someone's head and hitting someone else with the spinal cord. Traditional heroes' color palettes were toned down, the clothing is more muted and their colors are a little bit darker. Gotham's colors pop a little brighter. All 26 episodes were delivered in 24 months. Work was done on multiple episodes simultaneously. Concept art of Harley and King Shark included. Animation Magazine Article

  • April 1, 2020: Season 2 picks up right where season 1 left off. Gotham is in shambles, sort of inspired by the "No Man's Land" comic book run, and the city has been divvied up by several of the high ranking members of Gotham's rogues' gallery. The season tracks Harley as she makes her way in this new post-apocalyptic world of these territories. Season 2 for Harley is, "What do I want now that I'm not living my life for someone else? What is it that I want?" Episode 2 is the first appearance of Barbara Gordon. The university she attends has been commandeered by the Riddler. She's kind of coping with living under lockdown with The Riddler as the dean of this university and her father, Jim Gordon, is her roommate - kind of against her will. He is spiraling towards his lowest points so, his misery along with the absence of Batman and because of her determination, she ends up becoming Batgirl. Catwoman is the only person in the world that Ivy melts over with admiration towards. The way she is portrayed is that she's just cooler than cool and Ivy gets uncharacteristically giddy when she's around her. Like she's just this icon, she's Ivy's Lady Gaga. Writer Sarah Peters helped forming this show's Catwoman. Harley and Ivy need to extricate a certain weapon, which is under lock and key, at the National History Museum, which has been booby trapped and they need someone who is experienced in being slippery around booby traps so Catwoman is a no-brainer. Jim Gordon even bristles with the fact that there's someone who's acting in Batman’s place. Batgirl and Jim become unwitting partners at one point in the show. He's oblivious to the fact that it's his own daughter. Eventually he gets wise to it. Overall, Barbara is part of his redemption arc. Harley and Ivy's relationship will have a label by the end of the season. Through the season, Harley and Kite Man’s relationship evolves. She begins to understand Kite Man more. There is a respect for him by the end of the season. Season 2 shakes up the crew by the end of it. Bane gets more screentime this season. Episode 22 overall of the series is the Themyscira episode. It's a girl trip to Themyscira with Harley, Ivy, Catwoman, and a couple of other spoilerly friends that has huge ramifications on Harley and Ivy's relationship, while also having a musical number that has been in the works for a very long time that is very ridiculous.

  • April 3, 2020: Interview with Schumacker, Halpern, and Lorey. Mr. Freeze, his origin story and his cryogenically frozen wife will be "disrupted" in a comedic way? The Mr. Freeze episode is about Harley becoming a little bit more woke and getting used to learning more about someone before passing judgment. She thinks Mr. Freeze is a straight-up villain, but he's ultimately a sympathetic character yet handles his trauma in unproductive ways, turning his anger and angst into crime. It's a weird episode but oddly really touching. Nora Fries will be introduced in a way that we haven't before and will be voiced by someone. Still included for episode 2. EW Article

  • May 10, 2020: Review of episode 5 with Schumacker. Mr. Freeze's hideout was a nod to Halpern and Schumacker's dead pilot for CW that involved a Chuck-E-Cheese-like locale. The post team really helped fix up the coloring and stuff for Harley's mindscape. Peter Girardi pitched the sky to look like gray matter of a brain but it wasn't working. One of the memories Harley originally stumbled upon was the implication she dressed up as Batman before sex with Joker and Warner was unsure of it so Halpern and Schumacker ended up swapping in a scene of Harley's father being beaten up by the mob. The Married with Children-esque family portrait was re-purposed from episode 10. Wordballoon YouTube

  • May 17, 2020: Analysis of Season 1 Ep. 8-10 with Patrick Schumacker. Their original take on Aquaman was a macho surfer type not unlike Jason Momoa, some recording was done, and then they got a note back asking if he was too asinine.They looked back and decided to go with the regal Fraiser approach. The Legion of Doom headquarters was based on high end ad firms. Schumacker even worked in some and his parents are in the marketing industry. Justin Halpern did the screeches for Sy's sister but was later replaced by Phil LaMarr. Halpern also does Man Bat's screeches. Aquaman's dolphin Juba is named after a stuffed animal owned by Schumacker's daughter. The still shots of the various acts of terror in the LOD initiation video were supposed to be inspired by classic comic book covers. In an upcoming season 2 episode, they considered doing a recap in the style of William Dozier on Batman '66 but decided it should be Frank the Plant doing the monologue. wordballoon Podcast
  • May 23, 2020: By the end of season 2, it will be clear where Poison Ivy stands. Patrick Schumacker Tweet
  • May 24, 2020: Analysis of Season Ep. 11-13 with Patrick Schumacker. In episode 11, Clayface ruining Riddler's video threat was inspired by Pee-Wee's over eager movie cameo in Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. Music during reveal of the super toxin was inspired by Breaking Bad. The sequence rewritten the most out of the whole series was the journey into Ivy's mind, it was confusing and jammed with strange metaphors so it evolved over time to confront a Big Bad in the Empire Strikes Back homage. Frank wasn't the Cheshire Cat at first. Originally when Kite Man is incinerated – it is revealed to be Scarecrow but it came off as a muddled image so Death was adopted as a universal symbol. Once the initial animation came back, they decided to reiterate what the sequence looked like to make it scary and add in more VFX like the moving eyeballs, blood from the trees, and the flames from Death. Child Ivy coming back green from overseas animation was a happy accident. The inspiration for the highway was Hot Wheels meets Mario Kart and was the first time a heavy amount of CG was used because of all the angles of the scene. About 90 percent of what was boarded remained for the highway scene. They had to be careful around Sy's transformation for legal reasons not to look like a Transformer. Schumacker may have offended Jefferson Friedman once by bashing Baroque music, which happened to be Friedman's focus in school. Kite Man came up in development because another male villain with 'weak powers' was needed as an example of why men with less skills than women get a lot more credit and support. Once Matt Oberg came aboard to voice Kite Man and more of season 1 was plotted, Kite became a favorite of the crew. War of Jokes and Riddles coming out inspired Schumacker to suggest using Kite Man. In episode 12, Schumacker asked if drool from Ivy and Kite Man making out could be removed. Queen of Fables was really killed off and isn't returning in season 2. Felt safe in offing Ivy in the penultimate episode of season 1. Consciously borrowed the Supergirl death pose from Crisis on Infinite Earths throughout the series up to the end of season 2. The Legion of Doom wasn't killed off, they were off on vacation already. One of the blue sky ideas during development was a team up between Harley and Batman and was used in the finale. Halo jump sequence in a later Mission Impossible movie inspired Batman's drop in the Joker Tower. The montage music is a riff on Goodfellas. One of the writer's long wait for a Tesla inspired Joker's complaint. wordballoon Podcast

  • June 15, 2020: Zoom interview with Patrick Schumacker and Justin Halpern. The Frank recap was born out of necessity because the cut of the episode came in short so they thought of doing an unorthodox recap. Early into breaking season 2, Dr. Psycho's coup was planned. Darkseid was thought of immediately when they thought of how Harley would go the extreme. A mandate on the show was not to resolve things neat and clean. Scripts were written between November 2017 and February 2019. In the season 2 finale, the characters will make the decision they feel is best for themselves. The question of will the Joker-Bethany relationship survive is answered in finale as well. Justina Machado is Puerto Rican and Bethany's lines were written in Mexican Spanish so she had to retrofit the lines. Swearing in Puerto Rican was a loop hole to the show's swearing cap. They considered an episode about the Justice League in the fairy tale book, they didn't have their super powers because of the magic, things got dark like in Brothers Grimm's stories but they couldn't break the story and discarded the idea. Some things are wrapped up in episode 12, the larger emotional arc will conclude in episode 13, modeled after Breaking Bad's structure of resolving some things in the penultimate episode, there is no cliffhanger, and the 'ultimate couple' will be revealed.

The crew wanted to use Joan Jet's cover of Mary Tyler Moore's "Love Is All Around" theme song but for budgetary reasons, they had to use the money elsewhere but used it during edits of the final battle in the pilot. Killer Croc was originally a series regular but he was replaced with King Shark because they wanted Ron Funches for the show. Took around 75 weeks to write the original 26 episodes. Did focus group test, casual fans and diehard fans, two episodes in animatics about a year into writing, the pilot and episode 6, DC agreed to allow the interpretation of Jim Gordon as long as there was a redemption arc even after he tested very well, around "Bensonhurst" it was decided they should re-record the prior episodes like when Harley flies off the handle in scenes, Schumacker had to do a scratch track of Darkseid, was convinced by Sabrina Jalees to not do a coming out queer story, and Schumacker drew from his 8 month marriage for Ivy trying to commit to marrying Kite Man. No animatics have shipped overseas for animation yet so season 3 still technically in pre-production. Geek History Lesson Episode 374, 50 min. mark

Greg Weisman clarifies the layout of Lucas Carr's property: it is in Happy Harbor across from an undeveloped beach and he rents the apartment above the garage to Connor and Megan. Weisman confirms the interior of Lucas's house has not been seen yet. Weisman confirms generally Outsiders was the season 3 they envisioned from the early years. Some details that changed were the refugee crisis, the plan for Beast Boy, and use of social media. The DC FanDome audio play came from a desire to get some new material out there. They were initially asked to set it during season 4 to which they declined but felt a prequel to was fair game so they could throw in hints and easter eggs. Contrary to how it's normally done, they had to figure out which actors were available on FanDome then write the play. They started from a list of 14 actors, then he broke basics of story with Brandon Vietti, and had little time to write it so he stayed up even later than he already does. Jason Spisak talked to them a lot about developing Forager. Tigress becoming the new leader of the Team felt organic after Batgirl was for a time and after Miss Martian and everyone in the Anti-Light stepped back from being leaders and going back to being soldiers. At this point, Tigress is imminently qualified to be the leader. Artemis is 25 years old in season 4. Whelmed Podcast

She had to acclimate because things were done differently than her previous work experiences, had to get to know new people, settle in her new position, and rebuild a show that felt broken but a couple people welcomed her with open arms. The whole season was worked on at-home, didn't have the whole crew set up nor was any episode shipped to be animated when quarantine started in 2019. The crew is rounding the corner of finishing the season, they are in post production, and all episodes have been shipped.
