Do you think we’re getting a second season of Poe Party?Or at least something else in the same universe?

I haven’t heard anything specifically saying that. What I have seen are a number of hints about “the next thing” Shipwrecked is working on. I think I’ve heard that:

  • It will be significantly different in some ways, while being broadly similar in tone and inspiration. So I’m guessing that means a mix of intelligent comedy/snerk + shippiness. Maybe literary-inspired and/or period, but also maybe not? It’s all very much a mystery, including that it may or not be very much a mystery. :-)
  • Sinéad and Sean have started writing it.
  • They’d like to not have to crowdfund it. The hope is PoeParty will be seen as successful enough by people with big piles of money that those people will be able to be persuaded (which I wanted to write as “Persauded”, which I guess works too) to put some of that money into funding the next thing. As opposed to their saying, in effect, “Yeah, that looks neat. We don’t want to pay for that, but we’d be interested in hiring you to work on this different thing we have over here.” Which is what I understand Shipwrecked went through for a long time in trying to get Poe Party made, before they decided to do it themselves.

I may be misinformed and wrong about this. Or I may be more or less right, but things could still change going forward based on unforeseen events.

I’m trying to take each day, each chapter, as it comes. I feel lucky that this little thing I loved grew up to become this bigger thing I love even more. The only reason that happened is that some wonderfully talented people took risks and dedicated a big chunk of their lives to making it happen, and for myself I’m just trying to appreciate how special that is.

Whether or not that magic happens again, I’m just going to have to wait and see.
