“Strap in, because we’re diving right into something that’s never been done before,” he says.
The “season 4 camp cretaceous release date” is the latest news that has been released by Camp Cretaceous. The showrunner talks to TV Line about the new season coming up later this year.
In the shape of the Netflix series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, audiences have been treated to a whole new expansion of the Jurassic world during the last two years. The cartoon comedy’ fourth season aired on Netflix lately, and it brought its motley crew of campers into some weird new terrain. After eventually fleeing Isla Nublar in Season 4, the campers find themselves stranded on an unknown island, where they face terrible peril. As the gang learns more about the peculiar mysteries of this new continent, they must devise a strategy to not only preserve themselves, but also to defend the dinosaurs from the evil powers at work.
In honor of the premiere of Season 4 of Camp Cretaceous, we spoke with executive producer and showrunner Scott Kreamer about the new episodes. We discussed the season’s “jump the shark” moments, the series’ first romance, Jurassic World: Dominion’s excitement, and much more!
What, if anything, can you hint about where the tale could go from here?
I don’t want to give anything away. We know how Kenji describes his father, but we have no idea who he actually is. So, I’m going to learn more about it and look into the connection. Every season, every episode, we really put our kids through it, just like anything else. It’ll be interesting to watch how they respond and how they work together — or don’t work together — to get through the experience. That’s all there is to it. And we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Season 4 is now available to view on Netflix exclusively.
The season’s cliffhanger finale is such a shocking and tremendous note to conclude on. What are your thoughts on the decision? It’s startling to see Kenji confront his father and have this heel turn.
I believe we’ve known for a long time that we were approaching Kenji’s father. There were enough allusions to him, as well as Kenji’s connection with him, that it seemed unexpected — but not as unexpected when you consider all the hints building up to it. Those are my favorite kinds of “Oh, I should have seen that coming” moments in programs, movies, and literature. It’s been a lot of fun.
After spending so much of the program with just our six characters, it’s been a lot of fun to finally get Kenji’s father back into the mix and see what that means for Kenji, both the Kenji we met in Episode One and the Kenji we know today.
You alluded to movies. The Jurassic World: Dominion Prologue was released a few weeks ago. People are rekindling their interest in the Jurassic world, and your program has played a significant role in that. What has it been like to have such a strong crowd reaction from Jurassic Park fans who are really enjoying your show?
It goes above and beyond everything I could have imagined. When you take on a program like this, you just know the internet will be there to tell you why it’s terrible and ‘This is horrible!’ and everything. So, for the fans to love our program as much as they have, it’s well beyond anything I could have imagined. Then, over the weekend, my kids and I watched Prologue maybe four times. Colin and I exchanged a few emails about it. It’s fantastic. I’m genuinely looking forward to it, and I’m delighted that everyone else is as well. The Jurassic World: Dominion Prologue was released a few weeks ago.
Do you have any favorite scenes from this season? Something that makes you think, “I can’t believe we did that.”
I would have preferred to keep the Mosasaurus items, but we needed to show something in the trailer. But I can’t tell you how tough it was, especially with all the water interaction and a TV schedule and budget. The way our teams collaborated, from the writing through the storyboarding, effects, and animation. Everyone, in fact. That was a very challenging program to produce. It’s quite tough to throw that much water at an episode.
Another example is the sandstorm that our effects team was able to create in the desert. It’s incredibly satisfying when we can make these programs seem like they’re on par with the movies in terms of scale. And I believe the whole staff did a fantastic job.
When it comes to character moments, I’m a big fan of Sammy’s development this season. All of the events with Mantah Corp seem to have been simmering in the background, and now we finally get to see her shame and her beginning to cope with the fallout.
I adore all of these characters, and I believe the rest of the team does as well. And watching Sammy, how she began, and the inner power that has emerged as a result of it. Initially, it was as follows: “Okay, that’s it. She is, after all, the spy. Brooklyn’s phone is in her possession.” When you comes down to it, Sammy went against her parents’ desires to come to Jurassic World and encourage Mantah Corp to rescue her family, against their wishes. It’s been amazing to witness how Sammy has grown and developed, and how her inner strength has shown, as well as all she’s meant to Yaz in particular. Raini Rodriguez, once again, does an outstanding job of displaying this character’s strength, as well as his uncertainty and heart.
This season adds romance to the group of children in a charming and appealing manner to watch. It seems to be a logical evolution for the program, but it is also unexpected. I was hoping you could comment on that choice.
When we were breaking Season 2, I believe we landed onto that plot. We discussed it, and it seemed like it was too soon to hang on to it. And, to be honest, I had some reservations about doing so at first. It’s a kid’s program, and it’s not something you’d do in Jurassic Park. But, like you mentioned, it seemed like a logical development. Feelings arise when six children are stranded on an island for six months. And we wanted to do it in a manner that felt natural for the show and was appropriate for our characters.
Take a Chance on the Shark
With robot dinosaurs and hybrids and everything, this season takes a unique approach to Jurassic legend. Do you recall any occasions when you thought to yourself, “This seems like we’re jumping the shark, but we’ll make it work”? Was there ever a point in the writer’s room when you said to yourself, “I can’t believe we’re extending the world this way”?
Without a doubt. I’ve been up all night worrying about this season and this new approach. But, once again, we wish to widen our horizons. We need to extend the scope of the dangers. And, to be honest, when we first started talking about the BRADs, I thought the initial approach was a little too sci-fi. I even discussed it with [producer and Jurassic World director] Colin [Trevorrow]. There was obviously some cause for alarm.
Then, while we’re writing this, Boston Dynamic releases a new movie demonstrating the capabilities of its robots. And it’s as though, “What’s more, you know what? This isn’t that weird after all.” This isn’t as insane as we may have imagined at the time. As a result, it is hoped that the fans would support it.
Dr. Turner is an intriguing addition to the season since it’s practically unheard of for this program to have an adult character who isn’t an adversary in any form. What method did you use to approach her character?
We were ecstatic to be working with Kirby Howell-Baptiste. She was an inspiration for the role long before we contacted her about appearing on the program, so it worked out well.
It’s a hard situation. We want to extend people’s perspectives, and this isn’t a program about grownups saving children. As a result, it was a delicate balancing act, providing them with an ally who wouldn’t have all the answers but might help them solve all of their issues. But, rather than fighting every adult we’ve put at them, we wanted someone entertaining, eccentric, and with whom the kids could truly find an ally.
The season’s tonal balance is incredibly intriguing, since the questions the kids are asking and the things they uncover are serious when you think about it, yet the show still seems so playful. How did you go about achieving that balance?
It’s been like that from the beginning of the program, when we’re suddenly performing a kid’s cartoon where people die. So, this balance isn’t really new, but it reminds me of how the Harry Potter books and films progressed. They did became darker as the children grew older, as did their audience. As a result, there is always a sense of balance throughout this presentation. It’s always difficult, but thankfully, we have some really talented authors, illustrators, and voice actors who are able to locate the heart and relieve the tension in even the darkest of stories.
: The season is only getting started with this new status quo: the kids have left the island, and this is uncharted ground. What were your thoughts on it, particularly because you’re creating a new chapter in the Jurassic saga?
Scott Kreamer (Kreamer): That’s all there is to it. We’d spent three seasons on a jungle island fleeing dinosaurs, and we were ready for a change. We wanted to emphasize the fact that this program always starts and finishes with these folks. The characters should be pushed. These connections should be pushed. Just conduct some additional research into what it would be like for the kids to be dumped into a totally new environment with no explanations and a slew of questions. And enabling our audience to learn about the answers with our children.
