Jed Whedon: “Dr Horrible’s Sing-along Blog 2 is coming… sometime”

February 20th, 2014 by Marc Comments


The guys over at GeekTyrant have some truly awesome news… the Dr Horrible sequel is on its way with a story and songs already written. Awesome? Awesome.

Speaking to EW, Jed Whedon, brother of Joss and co-writer of the original Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog , was keen to talk about the current status of the sequel:

“We know we have spoken publicly about a sequel in the near distance and our passion to create it, and I promise we have not been insincere. Horrible is still one of our favorite creations by humans who were also us. We have many songs written and the plot outlined, but needless to say, we’ve been busy. Joss has had a hectic couple of years and is in the middle of the busiest year of his life, as is Zack and as are we. Also the actors have other things they’re acting in, I think. So the future is uncertain, our passion remains. DH2 will exist, in some format or another, at some point in the future. Unfortunately, the when is still unclear.”

So there you have it, folks… it is coming. But when is another matter altogether…

Not seen the original? You’re missing out. So, here it is… enjoy it. On us

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
