Don’t Worry, Whedonites, a DR. HORRIBLE Sequel Will Happen

Remember back in 2008 when the brothers Whedon (Joss, Jed, and Zack) gathered up a group of their famous friends and created Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog? It was a magical time, uniting Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day, and Nathan Fillion in supervillainry and song. And after the popularity of the series began to increase, fans begged for more, subsequently proving — even in a time when there was no such thing as “success” in a webseries world — that there could be a market for something professionally done in the digital landscape. Soon thereafter, Whedon confirmed there would be a sequel.

That was, of course, years ago. And much time has passed since the series premiered — though its appreciative fans have far from waned. In fact, they’re even larger in number and as desperate as ever to see the second installment, which prompted Entertainment Weekly to ask the question again. To which brother Jed responded in kind:

“We know we have spoken publicly about a sequel in the near distance and our passion to create it, and I promise we have not been insincere. Horrible is still one of our favorite creations by humans who were also us. We have many songs written and the plot outlined, but needless to say, we’ve been busy. Joss has had a hectic couple of years and is in the middle of the busiest year of his life, as is Zack and as are we. Also the actors have other things they’re acting in, I think. So the future is uncertain, our passion remains. DH2 will exist, in some format or another, at some point in the future. Unfortunately, the when is still unclear.”

So there you have it, Sing-Along fans. Now if only we could freeze-ray the world until our favorite aspiring supervillain returned. (Isn’t impatience a virtue?)

Are you looking forward to a Dr. Horrible sequel? Let us know in the comments.

    One more issue is that video games are usually serious naturally with the primary focus on knowing things rather than enjoyment. Although, it has an entertainment element to keep children engaged, every game is generally designed to work with a specific expertise or curriculum, such as mathematics or science. Thanks for your posting.

  2. My spouse and I stumbled over here by a different web page and thought I should check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to finding out about your web page for a second time.

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

  8. I think other web-site proprietors should take this website as an model, very clean and excellent user friendly style and design, let alone the content. You are an expert in this topic!

  9. faseta says:

    This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  10. Roger says:

    More please! Much much more!

    DH2 is a Horrible idea that the world is waiting for. Things are more of a mess now than ever. Time for a brand new day.

  16. Luna Raynar says:

The harmonies, the story line!! Just WOW!!! Funny how something so seemingly simple could have such an impact!! So YES YES YES… MORE PLEASE!!!

    I can’t wait! I have no patience!! 🙁

  18. Henrik says:

    What Joss really need is a Kickstarter campaign where we donate our time to him. Come on, people. Who wouldn’t give up a year of your life for a Doctor Horrible sequel. They might even put your name in the credits and everything.

  19. I hope they do ELE tryouts again, because I’ve been stepping up my evil game, writing songs for his Horribleness, waiting for him to fall in love with me. Proof:

  20. thatguy says:

    I’m as big a Dr. Horrible fan as anyone but some of comments seem a bit much. Jed is pretty much saying there will be something, in some form at some point in the future (and probably not anytime soon).

  21. Osamah says:

    I’m looking forward to the sequel very much. You can’t not look forward to anything from the Whedonverse.

  22. Travisty says:

    I would love a sequel, however the comments that we are too busy makes me afraid that it will get put off too long. I love Dr. Horrible and and can’t wait for the sequel anymore. I’ll have to make it myself!

  23. Asher says:

    Uh, hell yeah!

  24. Tom says:

    David P they don’t need the money, they just don’t have the time. Kickstarter won’t help with htat.

  25. David P says:

    They need to do a kickstarter like Veronica Mars.

  26. Robin says:

    Yes, Yes, YES!

  27. Amanda says:

    I CANNOT WAIT!! I have loved Dr. Horrible since it was in three parts and just on hulu!! I’ve introduced it to many of my friends and they all love it too!! Neil Patrick Harris… ’nuff said!! Can’t wait!! 😀

  28. Albert says:

    This is the best news I’ve heard all weekend!

  30. Jacob Graham says:

    I am currently in the beginning stages in remaking the Dr. Horrible’s Sing A Long Blog movie. I’m only in high school, but I have a lot of die-hard Dr. Horrible friends, and we’re always caught singing My Eyes or a Man’s Gotta Do. I love the movie, the actors, the making of the movie, everything about it.

  31. Diana says:

    We are looking forward to a Dr. Horrible sequel, and can’t wait we love the first Dr. Horrible, and thank you for making a second.

  32. James Laws says:

    I was literally listening to this today and was thinking about if they would ever make a sequel. I feel a bit like Truman Burbank now…

    This couldn’t be more amazing to hear!!
