The SiF team's blog have taken the time to let Thomas & Friends fans know that the future of the show will not be wasted.
With the writing of the series, especially in its 2011 year stint, getting the poorly recieved reaction that it had and the cancellation of Nitrogen Studios' animation commitments, the show entered a dark phase.
Over the backlash of Hit Entertainment being deemed responsible for Nitrogen's end for the animation creative control, Ryan from the team has confirmed that this was not the case.
He has revealed not only the real reason for the Vancouver based company's leaving, but also the promises that the show will deliver starting from 2013.
Behind the scenes, Series Seventeen of Thomas & Friends is to be aided by Head Writer Andrew Brenner and Arc Productions' Kallan Kagan and Rob Silvestri.
