Sgt Frog Abridged - Episode 18
Sgt Frog Abridged - Episode 19
The SFA revival was announced suddenly on February 14, 2013. The script was written from March 8-9, and recording from 11-19. Editing is set to conclude on the 29th.
Sgt Frog Abridged concluded on Thanksgiving 2012 after a difficult second season and a complete loss of motivation from creators Yoshi and Thorn. Thorn, who held creative control after Yoshi stepped down as project leader after SFA16, left open the possibility of a revival at some point in the future. The two initially planned to work on a Digimon Tamers abridged series instead, though by January 2013 it was clear no progress was going to be made, so Thorn shelved the project.
Thorn instead announced February 14, 2013 that he was reviving SFA. He provided a clarification video the day after, detailing how his desire to end SFA was a result of a rough second season and a difficult semester of college. The break from the series revitalized his interest in the series. He will be writing the series with anyone he wishes to join him, sans Yoshi who does not wish to write again for a video abridged series. His intent is to return to the humour of the first season, which did not focus so much on a story arc, though he does intend to work in the Shurara Corps as antagonists.
- This is to date the only episode written entirely by Thorn or by a single person. Yoshi and Travis did look over the script, and their reactions were positive.
- The episode was originally conceived as the first of a new SFA: Reset series, but it was instead made into a special and a lead-in to SFA Season 3.
