“Slings & Arrows” Prequel in Development?

“Slings & Arrows” Prequel in Development?

We came across an interesting news tidbit which we overlooked before. It seems a prequel for “Slings & Arrows” is in development. Co-creator Mark McKinney, who currently stars in NBC’s Superstore, and star of the series talked about the possibility of a prequel last year with the AV Club. It appears no reports have been made about the development recently. Judging on twitter reports from before, it seems the creators have been hinting about the prequel since 2014 and most recently talked about it during the creators Shakespeare 400 panel in 2016. No reports have been made on who of the original cast will return and if this would include Rachel. Given that it’s a prequel, we are not sure there is an arc for Rachel’s character Kate but we will keep an eye out for developments on this! The excerpts with McKinney can be found below.

AVC: Is there ever any talk of a Slings And Arrows revival? Is that universe closed at this point?
MM: We’ve been working on it for a couple of years now. We have a prequel locked and loaded that we’re going to set up somewhere. It’s a good one. It’s a true prequel, it goes back several years, almost to the foundation of the New Burbage Festival itself. It’s a great story.

AVC: Do you think it might get picked up?
MM: We were with the CBC in Canada, as we were with the original Slings And Arrows—and the original, they dropped it right before, almost at this exact same point, we were ready to go. And unfortunately, I think the almost the identical thing happened. So now we’re looking around. But it’s a vastly different landscape. We might be looking down here [in the United States], we might be looking up there, I’m not sure.

Today brings you a “Slings & Arrows” update. I was finally able to get my own copy of the season 1 and 2 on Blu-Ray. The DVD captures are not replaced with the Blu-Ray caputres. We also added some missing production stills of the series. The in-depth information page of the series is also updated, so be sure to check it out!

Slings & Arrows” is probably one of my favorite performances of Rachel. She won a Gemini Award (Canadian Oscar) in 2003 for her role. The series is currently available at Netflix in the US, as well as DVD and Blu-Ray.

Live with Kelly! Appearance

Rachel made an appearance on Live with Kelly! with Daniel Radcliffe as guest host yesterday (January 31st) morning. We added the interview in our media archive, we love that Daniel is mentioning “Slings & Arrows” since it’s one of our favorite Rachel projects so far. We also added the screen captures of the interview in our gallery.

It was also announced yesterday that Rachel will make an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on February 10.
