Following its world premiere at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, the third and final season of Streamy Awards nominated Legend of Neil launched today at Atom.com. The premiere marks the first blind script deal for series creator Sandeep Parikh with on-air partner Comedy Central. After the gripping cliffhanger that ended Season 2, Neil returns for Season 3, “where he’ll have to examine what kind of hero he is, find out if he has it in him to rescue Princess Zelda, and answer the oldest question in video games: Quit or Continue?”
In Episode 301, “Quitters Never Continue,” which was screened before 500 fans at Comic-Con on Saturday, Neil must decide whether his life back in New Jersey is any better than the constant threats of danger, death and loneliness back in Hyrule. Spoiler alert: members get whipped out.
”Tony and I have wanted this series to be a trilogy of seasons and we can’t thank the folks over at Atom enough for getting behind our vision and making the third and final season possible,” said Parikh. “Without a doubt, season three will be our most epic, ridiculous, raunchy, absurd and nerdiest of them all. We’ve assembled an incredible cast and crew, which really enabled me to push the bounds of web television.”
In addition to series stars Tony Janning, Mike Rose, Scott Chernoff and Felicia Day, the third season features a line-up of guest stars and musicians including Jason Sklar and Randy Sklar, Alex Albrecht, Robert Hoffman, Dragon Boy Suede, and Garfunkel and Oates. The third season introduces new characters, revisits Neil’s relationship with the princess, and hosts a few more surprises, including bonus videos and behind-the-scenes material.
Seven new episodes will be released, with a new episode premiering every other Tuesday. Additionally, this fall Parikh will host an episode of Atom TV, Comedy Central’s half-hour, late-night series featuring original web programming from Atom.com.
