Please consider a second season

Hello. This is the first review I have ever written. I usually just do the star thing and then move on with my life, but I had to post on this one. I found this podcast thru a recommendation on midnight burger. I ended up binging the whole season over 2 days. I LOVE it! The voice actors fit the characters so well and the story line was very interesting. It left open so many avenues for the story to develop to create other seasons. I hope that may happen someday! Until then, thank you for the entertainment.

I miss this show. I keep thinking about it ever since I listened to it last year. It’s such a good listen and the characters are so compelling. I want it back.
