After the discussion, the cast of the popular TV series talk about how YouTube’s role in the show has changed over three seasons in its second season, which premieres this year on Hulu and Comedy Central and is available for streaming on YouTube.
How has the “Chaos War” story evolved as you’ve gone through the fourth season?
Sophie’s mom says, “You should make it two, three seasons. It’s too long. Now we know the story more, it doesn’t require as much buildup.” That was my original plan. And then we had to make a bigger commitment and be able to write all those seasons and a movie. So… we’re going two, three years from now because we wanted to do something a little more substantial. And what we’ve done is we’ve found this wonderful team of writers that have the depth on YouTube. They’re not just creating content, they’re really writing the stories. They’re really writing the scripts and they’re writing the scripts with real intensity, real emotion. And as soon as they’re done with one, or two, or three, they’re already writing the next one. So it’s really grown out of the writers’ room, and so there’s a real sense of it. It’s grown out of the creative process within the writers’ room, and the whole creative team for that matter has just grown in that sense, with some of the best people to have been working together on this.
