En grande personne très douée que je suis, je suis passée en coup de vent trop zélé sur le topic des trads et j'ai confondu une couleur de texte. Résultat des courses, je me suis retrouvée à avoir traduit une page réservée par quelqu'un d'autre. J'ai essayé d'en parler à Reyo mais il n'a pas donné signe de vie, alors dans le doute, je poste cette traduction quand même...en m'excusant encore si Reyo avait passé beaucoup de temps dessus.
Season 3 and 4 were commanded at the same time. The objective was different : The end of season 4 had to be a real end, and not a cliff-hanger.
Little story that not everybody know : The two seasons were meant to be approximately 22episodes longs, the same size. But then, five episodes of season 3 were given to season 4 and that’s why the third is shorter.
Discussions about the serie has ended up to this point : season 3 had to be a transition season. It was meant to “distract” the audience while the big season 4 was produced. This helped to have longer times of work on bigger concepts such as translation, 3D boost, battles between humans (William’s xanatification)… Let’s enter the golden age of Code Lyoko.
Season 3…coming fast!
Season 3 is so a transition season.
The scriptwriters decided to plan a project they wanted to do : The “prequel” episode of Code Lyoko lately called « Genesis ». It is the double-episode about the beginning of the heroes’ adventures . This special episode was meant to be in season 2 but diffusers rejected the idea. Then, they thought about making a film of it, but this idea was rejected too. Finally, scriptwriters managed to reach their goal : two episodes were taken of season 3, made now of 13 episodes… and the Genesis was the special double-episode “XANA’s awaken”. Even if officially, the episode was, in diffusion’s logic, in season 3.
And season 3 was born.
Episodes were written from December 2005 (During the diffusion of season 2) to 18 April 2006.

After a few months and a summer in 2006, la fan’s community get the new season very quickly, in the start of the new school year 2006. Diffusion starts on the 9th September 2006 on France 3 and ends the 8th November 2006.
Genesis is diffused in the US on the 2nd of October 2006 (day of season 3 starting in USA) , and for the first time in France on Canal J the 21st of October 2006. Then follows diffusion of the new season.
On France 3, this diffusion comported a lot of fails which made the French fans angry.
[Case : France 3’s fails]
Moonscoop surfs on the wave of season 3.
A lot of by-products were created : two Code Lyoko games on smartphone (August), figurines of the serie (20th September) with an event in Toys’r’us of Paris Defense, the first DVD casket of season 2 (26th September), cards Code Lyoko (November 2006) and the famous album of the subdigitals (20th November 2006). Fans are happy now!
Two other events in the season 3 period : The first is an happy one because Code Lyoko receive the International Price of Export 2006 in animation’s domain.
The second is in the middle of season 3’s diffusion. It is an exposition in L’école des Gobelins about Code Lyoko, presenting the evolution from Garage Kids to today… and this event is very popular because on a poster, we discover the first views of costumes of the season 4.
[Case : Exposition in the Gobelins]
A season 4 we thought it was close…
And the long waiting for season 4.
To kill time, we interviewed Sophie Decroisette about season 4 (Christmas 2006) and even if she lighted us up about season 4, she couldn’t give us a diffusion date.
[Interview of Sophie Decroisette about season 4]
But let’s go back in the fan’s mind at that time... fan’s community is in a very good moment. All fans from forums and website met during season 2 and learnt how to know each other during season 3. This little group didn’t like to wait, because the season 3 arrived quickly after season 2. And season 4 was announced for spring 2007… but wasn’t diffused. It was then announced for summer 2007… and for September 2007.
Worse than this, any information was given, nothing, during this long waiting during the two seasons. Moonscoop and TV chains didn’t say anything about the season ! And this silence was surprising because we knew the two seasons were made together!
The only event was on the 3rd of April, the coming of the second part of the DVD of season 2. And codelyoko.fr pass the cap of a million visitors.
And then, it was like thunder when some fans found randomly the trailer of season 4 in codelyoko.com! You had to enter some codes to read this video :
We were happy, but waiting was harder… And again worse (for French fans), the Americans got a preview of the first episode of season 4, the 18th of May…and then, the diffusion started on the 12th of June, on Cartoon Network.
Only good point for French fans : The release of the video game « Code Lyoko DS », on 22nd of June 2007. And a little trailer of episode 66.
A preview, and then, season 4 was.
Good news came, Moonscoop came back. They gave to all fansites of fanblogs 4 tickets for a big event : a preview of Code Lyoko Saison 4 à Paris... on 5th july 2007.
The program was : Diffusion of an episode of season 4, discussion with Jérôme Mouscadet and Sophie Decroisette, try of the Wii game not yet released. And a lunch ! (Very important when you were in !) ! The preview came with the launching of the magazine “Code Lyoko 2.0”.
[Read the case about the preview]
CodeLyoko.fr was here and reported the event better than anybody else (and with a lot of modesty =3). The, we could list the spoils and create a case about season 4. To bring you back in the atmosphere :
[Case : all about season 4]
And then, you just had to wait until the end of summer... because season 4 was announced for 29th August. But then, the 13th of August, on France 3, season 4 started without telling anyone.
Fans follows as they can, and France 3 continues the mistakes in the duffison. You can go to the case to see how horrible it was :

[Trailer of season 4 on Canal J]
Season 4 will be diffused between 13th of August 2007 to 10th November. In October, it will start on Canal J. It is the chaos on the US side : Because of a fight between Moonscoop and Carton Network, the last episodes of season 4 were never diffused on the American channel which stopped the diffusion. Moonscoop will release them in the beginning of 2008 on Kabillion.
But even with all these fails, fans loved the season 4 and Code Lyoko was ending. Moonscoop used the success to release some goodies :
On 1st August 2007 season 3’s DVD were released, then the Wii Code Lyoko gamei : « Plongez vers l'Infini » (23rd of November 2007) and the second DS game « XANA : Destruction finale » (14th September). Lately, in 2008, season 4’s DVD were released (first part on 5th of February, second part on the 2nd of April) and then, very late, those of season 1 (23rd of September).
Wii game was adapted on PS2 and PSP on the 26th of September. Last big event in spring 2007, the Code Lyoko attraction in the Futuroscope.
[Opening of the attraction in Futuroscope]
This was how Code Lyoko and its golden age ended. The question that many fans asked was, of course : “When will the continuation come?”
Big movements of fans were created (petition etc...) to get a season 5... but Moonscoop didn’t say anything. Fans didn’t give up and were decided to be patient…
... but they didn’t know that if waiting between season 3 and 4 was hard... it was nothing next to the waiting coming.
