Hi, Varun Viswanath. Thanks for reporting on this situation. The technical limitations of IMDb makes this a hassle to sort out. We could assign the remix episodes as extra episodes of the fourth season, or we could add seasonless episode entries for the remix episodes. The are other, less-desirable options as well, like moving all of the fifth season's episodes to the sixth season, while making the remix of the fourth season into the fifth season.

Thank you for the options.
1) If you add them as new episodes in Season 4, can they be numbered as 4001 4002 and so on? Or would the have to continue on from 416 417 etc?
2) If you are forced to continue numbering as 416, 417 etc - then perhaps adding them as seasonless episodes will be the better option.

Thanks!

Thank you. 4.101 4.102 etc. sounds great. Just to clarify, will you be adding these on your end, or would you like for me to do it? Thanks!

Varun Viswanath, I would prefer that you do it, but what we should both wait around a bit to see what the IMDb site authorities have to express on the matter along with what other members of the IMDb Community think.

Alright, I'm gonna try adding these episodes with your suggested numbering format and see if they get through. I tried previously a couple of months ago, but I guess my episode numbering was incompatible with the current system.

Varun, as Jeorj pointed out, it is better to wait and see what other contributors think and IMDb staff members decide about this.
I personally think that IF these episodes get added, they SHOULD be added to season 4. In that case, I think adding them 4.101 is a fine way to go because there really isn't any alternative that is better. Also, I feel the episode names should start with Remix: Fateful Consequences as to clearly distinguish them from the "normal" season 4. (just like some seasons of Archer have: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1486217/episodes?season=9)

Hi Varun,

Thank you for raising this case. We have purposefully decided to not list these episodes as the footage used is just the same as the previously released season and it is IMDb policy to reflect the episodes as they were originally released. The details can be added to the alternate versions section on the title listing the changes in full and any credits associated with the remix can be added to the other works biography section, or alternatively IMDbPro members can add these to the additional credits section of the name pages.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Will

Thank you - I have previously tried to add my Editing credit to original Season 4 episode credits with the (television version) qualifier - but it has never gone through. Only my Assistant Editing credits went through. This works for the Alternate Version section that you suggested right? I have submitted it again - it would be great if you could approve it, given the complicated and unique situation we're in with regards to this show. Thanks!

Hi Varun,

That will be the reason why, any credits relating to a non-original version are not eligible on the episodes. As such I've removed your credits from season 4. You can add the details that the season was released as a remix to the alternate versions section of the title and list the changes from the original season 4, however you may only add the details of this work to the other works section of your name page, or in this case, as you are an IMDbPro member you can add them to your additional credits section of your name page.

Regards,
Will
