Build Up[]

On August 18 2021, Robert Manion released a tweet featuring a photo of an email from Nick Lang with the subject Nightmare Time Season 2, announcing that the season was very much in the works.

To tease the beginning of the second season of Nightmare Time, Starkid initially posted an image on their Instagram showing the letter N on September 20. The next day they posted another this time showing a letter T. Over the space of the next week the Hatchetfield actors, writers and creatives posted a new letter in the puzzle. The letters eventually spelled out the six story titles.

Controversy[]

Robert Manion was initially due to appear in the series featuring as characters such as Professor Hidgens. However, on September 23, 2021, Robert posted an Instagram story admitting to sexually harassing his colleague via unsolicited messages and sexual remarks, leading to major backlash from the fandom. Following this, StarKid posted an announcement on their social platforms on October 6, 2021 announcing that after consulting with a HR professional Robert would no longer be appearing in Nightmare Time 2 and that Robert would have to take additional action to rebuild the trust with his StarKid collaborators before appearing in future projects.

A plot summary and cast list were leaked for episode 4, which StarKid reacted to by leaving a subtle caricature about spoilers on their website.

Trivia[]

  • The name 'Nightmare Time' is keeping with the Not Your Seed motif that is being developed throughout the Hatchetfield productions. Not Your Seed first appears as a song in TGWDLM, and later a guitar riff from the song can be heard in Black Friday's Made In America. This same riff can be heard at the beginning of the Nightmare Time trailer, and the series' title is a quote from the original song ("And look what happens, nightmare time").
