Sound detective

Love it 😍!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pleas do a season 2 and 3 😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚

Season two??

I’m guessing you have seen all the reviews talking about wanting a season two. I don’t know if you are working on one, or don’t know how because they already caught the crook. If that’s the case, you could do something where the news lady becomes the new one and she found parts of the machine to make her own sound capturer. You can also make more merch as I’m sure you know will profit. Some ideas are: Audie action figure, sound detective poster, world’s greatest detective pen, sound detective sticker, sound detective magnet, and the hat Audie was wearing in the first episode. We all want more episodes and I’m sure you do too. Thank you for your time😁
