DROPOUT just announced the next season of Dimension 20 – and YOU GUYS IT IS THE UNSLEEPING CITY SEASON 2! Maybe we can have some nice things this year.
This isn’t the first time we’ve gotten a second season of one of the main series themes. They did Fantasy High Sophomore Year as a live stream back before everything was live-streamed. However, The Unsleeping City Season 2 is the first time a sequel has been given the full season treatment.
We don’t know much about the show yet other than that it’s going to be awesome. Oh, and I know who the Big Bad is from the press email:
A massive corporation called Gladiator (that’s basically Amazon) and the collective misanthropy of the world, which begins to manifest in strange ways that threaten both the waking and dreaming worlds. Themes are very much about the importance of community, taking care of one another, and moving forward with life.
These are themes we as a society need right now. TUC was my favorite season, and to get a second – it’s like Christmas early in a real way.
I did notice 3 things that make me very happy. First, there are some upgraded graphics to replace the intricate sets Rick Perry and his team famously make. I think they look really cool and dynamic. It has allayed a lot of my concern about missing those sets. Everyone has new character art as well which looks pretty sweet.
Second, there are 2 new characters! Of course, Kugrash wasn’t going to come back so Brian Murphy needed a new character. He has Cody “Night Angel” Walsh, a former Hot Topic manager who looks to be a hot mess in a good way. I have a lot of love for Brian Murphy’s characters in general. There are a lot of good characters to choose from so I don’t pick favorites (out loud), but he makes characters that just SPEAK to the giant nerd in me. I love it.
Siobhan Thompson has another old lady character. I am interested to see what happens with Anastasia Iga Lisowski, who appears to be an old lady running some kind of mafia racket disguised as a tarot card reading. I was kind of missing her old lady energy in advance when I heard it was The Unsleeping City Season 2. Then she pops up with another old lady character! It’s like she sees into our souls.
The third thing is: it looks like Kingston Brown and Pete are still good friends. It doesn’t look like they have manufactured any backward sliding character development just to make drama in the new season. That is amazing.
I am so excited to see where everyone is in their lives and what new drama is coming to New York City.
If you want to catch up on the series before The Unsleeping City Season 2, they’ve started dropping episodes of the first season on their YouTube. However, I know I say this in every review I write, but you’re really better off dropping 5 bucks and treating yourself to an absolute deluge of Dimension 20 and other amazing content on DROPOUT. They don’t pay that me to say this – in fact, we paid for subscriptions that we gave away. It’s the best use you are gonna get of $5 online.
I’m off my soapbox, promise. Just get ready for some AMAZING and HEARTFELT storytelling you guys, because The Unsleeping City Season 2 is going to be fantastic.
