I sent Matt a couple of emails, with questions and he responded, and I share it with you. There used to be a thread for this, but feel free to make this the offical Matt and Eddie email reply thread.
I asked him about why Courtney wasn't brought back, and he said.
Good question about Courtney -- She was orignally created to give Rose someone to talk to outside of Jake's gang and the Huntsclan. We meant to bring her back, but never really had the chance. Had Rose stayed at school after Homecoming, like we had originally planned, we probably would have had Courtney come back.
Thanks for watching!
I also asked about the Oracle twins of they lack of involvement this year, and professed my love for them as characters. Here is what he said.
We love the Oracle Twins, too!
With the Disney Channel mandate to keep Jake more at school and less in the magical world, they unfortunately fell by the wayside.
Two interesting things about "Magic Enemy #1" -- it's the last speaking role for Rotwood and it's also the very last appearance of the Oracle Twins (not counting the main titles).
This episode was almost killed by the Channel numerous times. They just didn't feel that the Jake/Rotwood relationship was relatable. I'm glad we fought for it, though, otherwise the events of the The Rotwood Files never would have been explored.
