“I think we had arrived at Episode 307 with AR. We had a document, here’s your 10 genres, here’s your 10 worlds, and we were at 307 when we shut down, and we were doing some exciting stuff. We have now found a way to use it [the AR Wall] in almost every episode.”

Fisher continued:

“We were almost done with Season 3 AR when we closed due to the strike. All I heard from the studio is they can’t wait to get back on the horse. Fingers crossed once the strike is over, I don’t think it will be long before we’re back up and running.”
