Will there be a season 3?

And bring back Auto! She’s so cool. Love her voice!

Smart Writing That Makes You Think Beyond the Episode

I've very much enjoyed listening to both seasons of The Dex Legacy. What has especially impressed me is the interesting character development that causes you to speculate about deeper things once the episodes conclude. Without giving anything away, I will say that I've contemplated subjects such as the existance of morality in a world of no morals, the line between machine and human, and the reasons why, when all hope is gone, some choose to fight and some choose to surrender. Looking forward to season three!

bradmossing ,

Great start

Love the concept
