It’s been talked to death that the future of the show is uncertain right now, but I can’t help but feel like that becomes a cycle as we get no information from Gizmonic Arts.
Obviously Lesley has moved on as have others, so there’s probably no one helming the communication department right now, but I do hope someone says something soon.
Joel’s letter in November gave a kind of recap to where things were probably heading in 2024, but the silence, at least for me, feels deafening.
Even if it’s just an announcement to say “for the foreseeable future, it looks like we’ve comes to what will be a dormant period and end of the road for creating new episodes with this cast and crew. This may take months, or years, but for now we may focus on upscaling classic episodes or merchandising, etc.”
Or, they could make a statement that’s says “we obviously can’t promise or share details, but as mentioned at the end of the campaign, we have started speaking with potential partners and have nothing to report (or have some interest so far) as of this time.”
It feels like the longer there’s nothing but silence, the more interest may fade in the public’s eye.
I personally wish they could do a “town hall” like they did after season 12. Really get down into the feedback and see what the pulse is. There was plenty of stuff posted on the boards during the campaign for season 14, but I still think there’s insights to be had.
And if this is the end of all things, that’s ok too.
It would just be nice to get that sense of closure to hear it in a more formal sense, cause for now it just feels like the bandaid is being slowly torn off.
Just my opinion though.
