Hello, do you know where it was said that season 3 and season 4 we're originally supposed to be one season (if it was said at all)? Also, thanks for doing awesome job on the blog, it's super helpful! Keep up the good work.
I’m glad you find it helpful!
And they discussed splitting what had originally been a 13-episode season multiple times during SDCC and after. Here is one example, of many:
Dos Santos: This smaller order of episodes wasn’t something we had planned from the beginning. We had built out, from a story perspective and a creation perspective, for it to be a traditional 13-episode season. The decision to split it up was made after we were already well into production. We had to sort of reverse engineer and look for a natural break in the story around that midpoint. What that allows us to do is dole out the episodes on a more regular basis; there’s not such a big gap in between seasons.
