There’s been a lot of crazy news surrounding the Freddie Wong co-created video production company and Nerdist office neighbors, Rocket Jump, in the last couple months, the most notable involving a development deal between the company and Hollywood studio Lionsgate. But now, as the company heads into post on the third (and final) season of their hit web-series VGHS, Mr. Wong himself has come out of the shadows to spill on the company’s future.
Look, it’s absolutely sad to hear the company will be doing away with the weekly short schedule. We can all agree there are few things the internet looks forward to more than a new Rocket Jump short just before the weekend.
