However, the San Diego Comic-Con 2023 brought forth reassuring news for fans.

His words brimmed with pride as he hailed the tremendous effort of his “small, but very dedicated team” using almost guerilla-style tactics to bring the series to life as per The Direct.

DeMayo stated,

“It’s like I said in there, we’re just in post [production] on Season 1. Literally writing the season finale for Season 2 right now. It’s going well. I could not be happier. It’s a gargantuan effort with a truly like guerilla tactic, small, but very dedicated team.”

DeMayo’s statement undoubtedly warmed the hearts of fans, especially those who were nostalgic about the original animated series from the 90s.
