>>114458282>Chronicles had new writers
It had a few, but the story editors were all from the old show. There were three eras of the show. Bill Motz and Bob Roth were in charge of season 1, David Silverman and Stephen Sustarsic were in charge of season 2, and Stephen Sustarsic by himself was in charge of season 3. Sustarsic was responsible for first 16 episodes of Chronicles and cowrote all but one himself, then Mark Zaslove, who was a writer on Showdown, was in charge of the last 10. Could be that Eric Radomiski, who supervised the entire show, and some nameless executives were what kept season 3 from becoming weaker than it was. You can definitely tell the tone shifts with each season, though the first two episodes of season 2 were written by Motz and Roth before they left the show for good so they maintained that tone.
