What inspired the comeback...

The irony in KH's return is that it was inspired by Bard Investigations. I'd read the latter show upon my return to the world of VS, and was very impressed. Immediately, I felt a desire to bring back KH. Little did I know that Bard Investigations, he show that inspired the return of my own project, was in fact full of multiple instances of plagiarism which would eventually lead to its cancellation and the expulsion of its showrunner from many online writing communities.

Initially, I ignored the urge to bring back KH. Why? Because I didn't want to bring it back only to not see it through to the end again. The show means a lot to me, and I didn't want to mess it around again. Eventually, I decided that we should do one final movie to wrap it up. Of course, the movie would have to ignore a lot of the cliffhangers from the series finale, but we soon worked out how to do this in a way that made narrative sense.

After working out the basic plot of the movie, along with some of the action set pieces, etc, I started to re-read the first season. By this point, I'd contacted Jon and Adam and got them back involved. Whilst reading the first season, I suddenly started to miss these characters and the setting. Suddenly, the movie didn't seem like wasn't going to satisfy my need to properly give this group of characters a send off. I wanted to tell my original story, the one that was meant to be spread over five seasons (six at a stretch!).

And suddenly I thought...why the f*ck couldn't we write a full second season, and beyond?

At that moment, Knight's Haven returned as an ongoing series.

Better late than never...right?

I think that our last entry, if I'm correct, was in September 2008. Crikey. Quite a while ago.

I'm going to go into details of the state of KH over the coming days, but first I'd like to publicly assure any old fans who may wander past this little blog, that after several years out of action, the KH team are back together and working their asses off to bring you the show you fell in love with back in 2006/2007.

And that's not just another false promise. No, we've got three scripts completed for the second season, with another nearing completion. And a fifth is also about to be finished. So that's nearly 5 out of 13 scripts done already! And that's all on top of the 13 from season one, which will be re-released at some point towards the end of the year or start of 2012.

So, more from me very soon, but again, I'm very excited to confirm on this old and lost blog of ours that Knight's Haven is back in action.
