Short update by Jackson today
to remind you of Adult Swim's online panel question submission thing
and with some quick notes that season five is moving along:
Doc and I are writing now. And we're writing some pretty good shit, if I do say so myself.
Production on Season 5 will begin very soon. The budget and schedule have been set, we're ordering computers, and we're currently hip-deep in the process of finding and hiring the right artists for the right jobs.
For those of you familiar with the process, once a script is written it generally takes around eight or nine months to become a fully-formed episode since there's character design, storyboarding, voice recording, rough animation, final animation, post-production, music-making and revisions to everything along the way. This is in no way an official estimate, but if we assume production starts in November that means season five will probably begin around September or October of next year (depending on delays and such). Yes, I know, but we've all been here before multiple times. Just hang in there, it'll be worth it!
