CBR News spoke with representatives from Platinum Studios with news of “Jeremiah.” Earlier this year it appeared the show might be cancelled after the end of season two and a grass roots movement by fans got rolling to get MGM and Showtime to renew the series for a third season. Platinum Studios told CBR news that while it’s not scheduled quite yet, there will be a third season of eight episodes to come. Platinum’s guess is it will be scheduled sometime in the summer of 2004, but nothing is firm at this point. Platinum also has plans to open a “Jeremiah” portal site which will help service fans, fan sites and broadcasts worldwide with show clips, photos and merchandise. What’s unique about this is that it will be set-up for world wide service, whereas generally sites of this sort service only one market or region at a time.

Those zany kids at CHUD also wrote a report on a set visit they had, getting up close and personal with all the extraterrestrial critters. First director Paul Anderson talks a lot about the decision to put the action on present-day earth, his own fanboy experiences with the properties and just how much CGI you can expect.
