Episodes 9-16 of Season 1 are actually Season 2. Disney are airing 4 episodes of season 2 with 4 episodes of season 1 in two half hour specials. Then each of the 4 new episodes will be posted online.

Could someone please delete 9-16 of season 1

Thanks

This needs an admin ruling.

Since no sources were cited in the initial request post above:

All references to a "season 2" or a "second season" I could Google refer to an August 21, 2017 The Hollywood Reporter interview with series writer Jennifer Muro at http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-v ... ns-1031369 (also cited by Wikipedia which theTVdb does not a consider reliably authoritative source as mentioned in the red box ever-present at the top of every request thread)

HOWEVER, I would say the officialness of the designation of "season 2" is DEBATABLE when one considers that it was the INTERVIEWER who FIRST referred to the episodes premiering in October 2017 as a "second season" and Muro went with it.
Which characters have you wanted to work with, but haven't found the chance yet? Are there new characters showing up in the second season of the shorts?

I wish I could tell you! You'll find out in October. It's been announced that we'll see Hera [from Star Wars: Rebels], which will be great. I think people will enjoy seeing the characters in the second season.
It's even vague in Muro's reply as to whether or not "second season" directly refers to the October episodes.

All other reporting that I could find (which did not reference the THR interview with Muro) only mention some variation of "additional episodes in October" without mention to seasons at all such as https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2017/07/ ... utube-now/ (the other article Wikipedia cites as a source for "second season" despite no references to seasons whatsoever, even in the embeded video interview also with Muro)

EP9 on wards are listed as the same season on the Official Disney YouTube channel, where the Show is actually from, whats on the main channel is just a bunch of the you tube videos edited together.

The show is even listed as a "YOUTUBE" show on the site

Why add new episodes creating duplicates rather than requesting they be moved if that is what you believe should happen?

I question if they should, there are no season references on YouTube where they are premiering.

Since this is a Youtube series shouldn't we handle it like other web series, ie. s2017e01 and so on?

Ok forget what I said above since this looks to only ever be 16 episodes at ~3 minutes each. Technically according to the rules the series should not be allowed. Just in case it is allowed, I found the following:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6779076/epi ... =tt_ov_epl

I've searched all the allowed sources and IMDB lists it as 1 season while wikipedia lists it as 2. According to the source rankings IMDB wins.

Disney's take doesn't matter here, as YouTube is the originating site.
Until and unless that site is broken into seasons, our listings should reflect that.

In any case, wholesale blanking is never acceptable.
Episodes 1-11 are locked because of this.
