It’s finally happened. Emma Perkins has her pot farm… and it’s glorious. The only problem? Those checkered-tail nighthawks that keep eating her weed! As the Hatchetfield Honey Festival approaches, Emma and her farmhand/graphic designer, Ziggs, fight to protect Perky’s Buds from malevolent forces who’ll stop at nothing to destroy the farm… or claim it for their own.
Some kids dread it. Others look forward to it all year. That’s right… Abstinence Camp. Where Hatchetfield’s youth are sent to “Just. Say. No!” When nerdy prude Grace Chasity inadvertently starts a rumor about cool & popular Stephanie Lauter, the two find themselves stuck together for the summer. Along with a cast of kooky counselors and fellow campers, they discover the terrible secret of these woods. That something… or someone watches over them. Someone who punishes those that do not abstain. Someone who lumbers. Someone… with an axe!

Nightmare Time (Needy Beast Cover)
Frank Pricely is a down-on-his luck toy store owner. As his business is slowly crushed by giant, online retailers, Frank struggles to make ends meet. His only loyal customer is a spoiled-rotten man-child named Sherman Young. When Frank hits it off with Sherman’s rich, widowed mother (Sheila), he sees a golden opportunity to save Toy Zone… by marrying Sheila and becoming Sherman’s Daddy! But Frank soon discovers there’s more to the Youngs than meets the eye, and that being the daddy isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
It’s been spread online, at parties, in the backs of beat-up, old vans… the song… The Killer Track. Hear it, and seven days later you die. But it’s just an urban legend, right? Rose is about to find out. When she’s played the song by an alluring stranger, she can’t escape the haunting tune. With time running out, Rose seeks help from a kindly social worker named Duke and a mysterious woman with strange powers, Miss Holloway. Her craft put to the ultimate test, can Miss Holloway save Rose (and all of Hatchetfield) from the Killer Track?

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.
