Audio-drama company Big Finish has confirmed (24 April 2015) that – due to the great success of the first releases in its new Survivors audio range – a further two series of adventures have been commissioned for release in 2016.
This amazing news means that a total of (at least) twenty new Survivors audio adventures will be released by Big Finish between 2014 and 2016.
Series three will focus on the adventures of Abby Grant – and see the return of Jimmy Garland (introduced in the series one TV episode “Garland’s War”, and last seen in the first series finale “A Beginning”); and feature a return trip to the dangerous streets of London.
Big Finish are delighted to announce that there will be more of the much acclaimed Survivors range in 2016…
Producer David Richardson spoke about the news: ‘As I write this, we’re prepping to go into studio for Series 3 (Abby Grant and Jimmy Garland, and a deadly voyage into London…) and signing off edits for the very dark, disturbing Series 2. But plates are spinning for Series 4 – our writers are all attached and coming up with the storylines – and we know where we are going with Series 5. How wonderful that Survivors has become such a success for Big Finish – and what a tribute to Terry Nation’s original idea, and the wonderful cast of actors.’
Survivors – Series 4 will be out in June 2016, followed by Survivors – Series 5 in November 2016. All four coming releases are currently available at special pre-order prices on CD and Download, with all CD customers getting immediate access to a download upon release, exclusive to Big Finish website purchases.
The next release in the range is Survivors – Series 2 in June, with more details and a trailer on the link above, while Survivors – Series 1, and star Carolyn Seymour’s evocative reading of the Survivors by Terry Nation novel are both also available.
