Realm—the fiction and podcast outlet formerly known as Serial Box—has just announced a slate of projects that includes new stories from horror icon John Carpenter, and a second season for the network’s Orphan Black continuation (with star Tatiana Maslany set to return), and a new iteration of Jules Verne’s famous oceanic captain.
Earlier this year, Serial Box rebranded itself as Realm, putting more of a focus on podcasts. A number of their stories are being released via Apple Podcast Subscriptions this month, including The Vela (a space opera written by Yoon Ha Lee, Becky Chambers, SL Huang, and Rivers Solomon and narrated by Robin Miles), Low Life (a horror-comedy written by Steve Marcarelli and Billy Lalor.), and The Shadow Files of Morgan Knox (a ghost mystery story by K Arsenault Rivera, Brooke Bolander, Gabino Iglesias, and Sunny Moraine and narrated by Pilar Uribe.)
