The Doctor Who franchise is one of the very few franchises that have kept up with their exceptional content. And the show is not slowing down anytime soon because Doctor Who Season 13 is also under production. But when will it be released?
When the showrunner Chris Chibnall was asked about the 13th installment at the comic-con event, he replied with one word “swarm.” If you’re an avid watcher of the series, you won’t understand the inside joke. But this one word gave the Whovians an idea that the upcoming season will be a treat!
This time the producers tried something different with the show. Unlike previous seasons, the entire installation will revolve around one issue instead of each episode telling a different story. But why? The pandemic is to blame here because the producers couldn’t put in the same effort as they have put in the preceding seasons.
Doctor Who is a British series that first premiered in 2005. The 13th installment in the franchise will consist of 8 episodes and will have Jodie Whittaker in the lead. Moreover, this upcoming installment in the 39th season overall! So, that’s huge for the fandom.
The rest of your queries will get solved in the article below. So, without any further delay, let’s get the ball rolling!
