BIG FINISH HAVE revised the schedule for the next two releases in their series of acclaimed original Survivors audio dramas.
The eighth series of the full-cast dramas set in the world of Terry Nation’s 1975-77 series had been scheduled for release in June, with the ninth series (the last currently confirmed) following in November. This timetable has changed.
Series eight is now to be released in November 2018, with series nine following in June 2019. Series producer David Richardson is keen to reassure fans that the change is simply down to the practicalities of ensuring the availability of all the actors and the behind-the-scenes team.
“The change was purely down to production logistics,” Richardson confirms. “We needed all of our ducks in a row to be able to record.” He pledges that fans’ patience will be rewarded. “I promise it’ll be worth the wait,” he says. “There’s some seismic stuff coming!”
Series eight and series nine are both available for pre-order (in both CD and digital download formats) on the Big Finish site. The previous seven series (and the audiobook version of Terry Nation’s 1976 Survivors novel) are all available for purchase.
