Adventures in Odyssey have a final date when they will "throwing in
the towel" (quitting) or is it still undecided? -Submitted by
The day Adventures in Odyssey
says goodbye will be the day fans stop buying the series. In fact,
God has blessed AIO over the years because the fans who buy the
albums keep the series going. In other words, the show pays for
itself. As long as there is a large amount of fan interest, the show
will go on. A few years back, however, AIO did come close to saying
goodbye to the series. Would you believe that right after
Darkness Before Dawn aired, the
team almost quit making Odyssey episodes? Now that would have been a
real disappointment for all of us who loved the series back then.
Just think... Eugene would have never gotten married, Connie would
have never met Mitch, and Whit would have never come back from the
Middle East! Scary!
One big reason for shutting down
the series in the future is if we lose too many of our prominent
actors. Walker Edmiston
passed away in February 2007, leaving us without Bart Rathbone or Tom Riley. I imagine if we lose
Katie Leigh, or
Will Ryan along the way, the
series would be better off at a stopping point. A series is no good
if all of your original actors on the show have to be replaced.
So in answer to your question -- at
the moment -- Adventures in Odyssey must live on!
