LOS ANGELES, CA – November 14, 2013 – The creators of The Katniss Chronicles are proud to announce that they will continue their acclaimed audio drama adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy with the release of Part III (Mockingjay) in June 2014.

“It’s been a tough secret to keep,” explains Executive Producer and Head Writer Tony Caballero, “but we had always intended to complete all three books, hopefully culminating with the release of each of the feature films. (Writer/Executive Producer) Bryant Dillon and I have been trading off writing duties since just before San Diego Comic-Con this past summer, while (Director/Executive Producer) Sam Rhodes has been editing Part II.”

Nominated for 14 Audio Verse AwardsThe Katniss Chronicles is currently approaching the end of its second season adaptation of Catching Fire, with three episodes remaining before their blockbuster season finale. A favorite with Hunger Games fans, The Katniss Chronicles has been a labor of love for the staff, who have used the books as a jumping–off point and enhanced the story with music, audio effects, and a cast of first-time and professional actors on both the East and West Coasts.

Current and past episodes are available for free to listeners through the official website (www.thekatnisschronicles.com) and through iTunes.
