Even though the series is currently on hiatus, there have been some exciting developments in the world of Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda in the last few weeks. Here's the latest news on the series, courtesy of our sister site, SlipstreamWeb.
- Andromeda Renewed Until Season 4, Probably 5
When Andromeda debuted last fall it had already received a two season commitment from Tribune Entertainment. At the San Diego Comic-Con, executive producer Robert Hewitt Wolfe revealed that Captain Dylan Hunt and company would be around for even longer. "Yes, there will be a Season 3," he said."There will be a Season 4. I will say, this may or may not be an official announcement, but indications are good - we will do five years."
- Andromeda To Premiere In Germany
The adventures of the Andromeda Ascendant will be blasting off in Germany with selected episodes being shown in cinemas, accompanied by a visit from series star Kevin Sorbo. The two-part series premiere 'Under The Night' and 'An Affirming Flame' as well as the arc-building 'Harper 2.0' will be showcased as part of the country's Fantasy Film Fest.
- 'The Prince' Shoots On Location
Season two's tenth episode, entitled 'The Prince', recently completed location filming at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. "They managed to shoot within a huge space that didn't have any signs of power lines or automobile traffic," said staff writer Zack Stentz. "The big quad they shot on has really cool stairs, plazas, public art, and even koi ponds that really add to the visual interest. The overall effect is sort of if Versailles was designed by Albert Speer. 'The Prince' should be a really good looking episode." A first glimpse at costumes from the episode can be found here.
- Cobb Can't Wait To See 'The Prince'
Keith Hamilton Cobb, who plays Nietzschean Tyr Anasazi on the series, also expressed his enthusiasm for 'The Prince.' "[It's] a strong episode. From my perspective, it is perhaps, on some levels, one of the strongest of the season thus far," Cobb wrote in his website journal. "It's rife with politics and intrigue, which, as we know, is sort of the Nietzschean's stomping ground. And so there is room for character exploration and development." More on Cobb's experiences shooting the episode can be found here.
- New Episode Titles Revealed
The titles for fifteen of Andromeda's season two episodes are now known, including the mystically-titled 'Ouroboros' and 'Be All My Sins Remembered', taken from Hamlet's infamous 'To be or not to be' soliloquy. Further information on these and other episodes can be found in the episode guide.
