Season 3 debuted on March 3rd, 2021.

Production[]

In November 2020, GM Ben Paddon revealed that there were plans for a third season. These plans were confirmed when the Season 2 Credits were released. On December 15, Paddon tweeted that they were recording the first serial "this weekend," meaning the adventure would be recorded sometime during December 19-20.

In February 2021, after the news that the US retail chain Fry's Electronics would be closing permanently, a teaser was released in which the characters watch a flying saucer crash into what is revealed to be the Burbank, CA branch of the chain.

The podcast also launched a Patreon at the beginning of this season to cover production costs, resulting in some one-shots that were originally Patreon exclusive but were later released to the podcast feed. These stories were The Game of Classilon: Jinkies & Zoinks, GM'd by Riley Silverman and set between seasons 2 and 3, and Human Nature, an adaptation of the Paul Cornell novel and TV story of the same name GM'd by Michael Nixon.

This season also saw a special adventure, The Buzzard's Treasure, played using the Paradoxes & Possibilities RPG system. The game was GM'd by Michael Nixon and written by Sophie Iles. Iles also co-designed the Paradoxes & Possibilities system.
