Webcomics to Animated Series Updated

Your favorite animated videogamin' webcomics are making plans for another season of cartoons:
Is there going to be a season 2: Both Ryan [Sohmer] and myself want to make a season two, but itâ€™s not going to start right away. Weâ€™re going to see how the DVD sells before deciding how to move forward. We want to give the PvP readership what it wants, and if thatâ€™s more DVDs instead of online subscriptions, thatâ€™s how weâ€™ll move forward. I also need a break from the production schedule to make time for the extra traveling Iâ€™ll be doing this year to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the strip and promote the How to Make Webcomics book.
When is the DVD coming?: As soon as Episode 12 is complete, weâ€™re starting production on the DVD. All of our voicecast became huge fans and supporters of the strip over the last year and they really want to help make the DVD special. So weâ€™re going to be recording commentary tracks and filming some behind the scenes stuff to include. Iâ€™m hoping to be in LA next month doing just that. My personal goal is to have DVDs in time for Emerald City Con.
Ryan Sohmer of Blind Ferret Entertainment says:
Blind Ferret Entertainment is proud to announce the development and distribution of a 2nd Season of Ctrl+Alt+Del: The Animated Series. Financed entirely by Blind Ferret Entertainment, the new season is scheduled to begin airing in March 2008.
More from the Blind Ferret press release after the jump:
"Weâ€™re really excited about continuing work on such an exciting project. When we started the webisodes back in early 2006, we werenâ€™t sure what to expect. The success of the 1st season has convinced us that we have the right model to succeed with the project for another season.â€ Says Randy Waxman, President and CEO of Blind Ferret Entertainment. â€œWe learned a lot with the first season, and I believe that just like any other animation project, we will see enormous improvements this year in terms of episode quality."
Unlike the 1st Season, Season 2 will be produced entirely in-house by Blind Ferret. â€œWeâ€™ve worked hard over the past year building and developing our animation studio, and I believe that it will show in the improvements weâ€™ll be able to make this year,â€ says Ryan Sohmer, Blind Ferretâ€™s Creative Director. In addition to better quality episodes, Blind Ferret is planning longer episodes for Season 2.
"I'm really excited for the chance to build on what we started in Season 1. I think we're going into this season a lot wiser and more prepared for the process, and that will translate into a very enjoyable series for everyone involved." Says Buckley.
One new 7-8 minute episode will be released every month beginning in March 2008. The trailer for episode 1 is now available to fans at www.cad-series.com
