Superjail creators Christy Karacas and Stephen Warbrick spoke with site Screen Invasion at Comic-Con about the upcoming season of Superjail.

Some excerpts:

If you liked season 3, you’ll like season 4. If you hated season 3, you’ll hate season 4.

We don’t try to please anyone, we just try to make it as funny as possible.

We don’t sit around going ‘what’s the show about?’ We just make it. It is almost like a kids show that has violence. The more I think about it, it is a pretty silly show, I mean, it doesn’t make any sense.

  • Season 4 feels very “throwbacky”, they described it as being more situational 80’s TV-esque, but with a big fight scene peppered with random violence.
  • Like season 3, the new season will include more of the staff and inmates interacting as the inmates have come in to their own as characters. Many characters are returning.
  • There are no guests stars this season, just a continued powerhouse performance from David Wain as The Warden.

Superjail season 4 is set to hit Adult Swim sometime in 2014.

At New York Comic Con I interviewed Superjail creators Christy Karacas and Stephen Warbrick, and here is a video of that interview:

Thanks to all those who submitted questions for me to ask them; obviously I was not able to ask them all of the many questions you fans posted. Several of the questions were answered in the earlier press conference, which I’ve posted below.

Adult Swim has uploaded a video of some of the highlights of the Superjail panel at NYCC, including Titmouse animator James Sugrue performing his live dub of the episode Gay Wedding.

Cosplay is common at conventions; here a fan shows off his Warden outfit

Superjail was at New York Comic Con this year, and they had some good news to share. The big one, in case you missed the earlier post, is confirmation of Superjail season three! They are currently working on writing the first episodes of the new season and plan to air them next year. Also announced is that season two will be getting a DVD release in 2012. Commentary has been recorded for the episodes, and the DVD will also contain special features such as animatics.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem likely that Superjail will be on Blu-Ray yet. The creators of the show are in favor of the idea, but ultimately the decision isn’t up to them. They had similar answers to questions of things like Superjail toys, video games, or crossovers with other Adult Swim cartoons: it would be cool, but unlikely to happen anytime soon.

Information about Superjail was dispensed in the form of two panels with question and answer sessions. The first was a press conference, for news outlets and websites such as this one; the second was a general panel where the creators of the show answered questions to a room full of fans. I’ve transcribed a couple excepts from these panels that you can read below.

Adult Swim Central and Jailbot.com will be interviewing Superjail co-creator Christy Karacas at New York Comic Con, and we need more questions to ask! Tell us what questions you want us to ask Christy. Leave a comment on this post, and we’ll try to get your questions answered.

The Superjail interview, press conference, and panel took place on October 15, 2011 and comments on this post are now closed.

Stay Tooned In has posted two interviews with Superjail co-creator and Cheeseburger guitarist Christy Karacas.

  • Interview with Christy Karacas about Superjail

    If we get a third season, I’d love to combine the psychedelic randomness and violence of season one and the character development/storytelling of season two. If we did that, I think season 3 would be the best season of Superjail! yet.

  • Interview with Christy Karacas about Cheeseburger

    We had these two fans in LA come to our hotel room after the show to party. They were really nice – then out of no where they come out in bathrobes and get totally naked. They were trying to get everyone naked…

What’s a typical work day for you at Superjail! headquarters?

Christy Karacas: I’m technically supposed to be here 10 to 7, but sometimes I sleep here. Usually I come in anywhere between 8 and 10, and sometimes I come in at 11 if I have other stuff. People work late here, I kind of have to be here to answer questions and oversee everything. A lot of my duties on the show I get more time to do them before or after work. There’s been a lot of sleeping here this season. This place is really fun, we love making this show. This show is a ton of work, we do almost the whole show in-house, we don’t send any of the animation overseas or anything like that, but it’s kind of a really laid back attitude. It’s like, ‘Everyone, just get your work done and you can do whatever you want.’ We’ve got a pool table, we’ve got a keg. Sometimes around 5 we play pool and have a beer, then go back to work until like 9 or 10. It’s like, really intense but really fun.

Some interesting recent Superjail links:

Venture Bros. fansite The Mantis-Eye Experiment has posted an interview with Jackson Publick about Superjail. Jackson Publick is best known for being the co-creator of The Venture Bros. but he also works as a writer on Superjail and voices several of the inmates.

Mantis-Eye:
What were your contributions to the first season?

Jackson Publick:
I only worked on the writing of the last three episodes–”Cold Blooded” and parts 1 & 2 of “The Time Police.” We brainstormed and broke the stories together, and then I did some punch-ups with them. But I did a handful of voices throughout the season.

Mantis-Eye:
Has that role been the same for this upcoming season?

Jackson Publick:
Pretty much the same. I’m officially the Story Editor and like a Consulting Producer or something. I’m like the go-between for the creators and the network. I run the writers’ room, break the stories and outlines with the guys, give notes on their script drafts, and do some punch-up writing on the final drafts. Here and there I’ll give a note on the animatics or storyboards. I also direct the recording sessions, and I’ll be reprising my Ash, Nicky and Gay Inmate roles, plus a few new guys.
