Felicia Day, creator of The Guild and geeky phenomenon, announced earlier today that the show will be back for more action and sponsored again by Microsoft, who also sponsored the previous two seasons. No exact day yet on when the new season will begin, but it is set tentatively for sometime this summer, with pre-production already underway.
From the official announcement:
Felicia is putting the finishing touches on the script for Season 4, which will pick up where Season 3 left off. Pre-production is underway, keeping producer Kim Evey and Streamy Award winning director Sean Becker very busy as cameras are set to roll sometime in May.
The announcement comes just days on the heels of the Streamy Awards, where (after a somewhat embarrassing night) The Guild didn’t take top honors but took home two awards nonetheless: Director Sean Becker took the Streamy for Best Directing for a Comedy Web Series, and Day took the award for Best Female Actor in a Comedy Web Series.
I, for one, am super excited to see where this upcoming season will lead us. If you’re a fan of MMOs and haven’t yet seen the show, it’s a must-watch. You can watch the previous seasons on YouTube or iTunes, or if you really love them, you can buy DVDs of Seasons 1 and 2 and Season 3.
A comic detailing the pre-story of The Guild also is now available, so check that out as well.
Who else can’t wait?
