This sequel series done largely without the original creators' involvement showcases the further adventures of the Manhatten Clan. In this series, the clan now have to deal with a city that knows about them and fears them. This situation is made all the more difficult with the insanely fanatical Jon Canmore, now known as John Castaway, exploiting that fear to form the murderous anti-gargoyle militia, the Quarrymen. With their help of their powerful former enemies and now patrons, the Xanatos family, the clan must try to convince the human population that they mean no harm to the innocent. Written by

Most Gargoyles fans refuse to consider this sequel series, with the exception of the pilot, as part of the franchise's continuity. The original series creator who was only involved with the pilot, Greg Weisman, agrees and is currently writing a comic book continuation of the original syndicated series that removes the majority of events from this series from continuity.

I have met many people in person who have loved the Gargoyles series, and I have showed all 65 episodes to many friends and all have loved it. I seem to universally hear that these episodes aren't as good, but as a big fan of the first 3 seasons (episodes 1-65, whereas the Goliath Chronicles 1-13 are really 66-78), I must say that I WANT MORE nonetheless.
I'm surprised by the Gargoyles (1999) entry in IMDB. It makes me wonder if there aren't more Gargoyles episodes in production. If anyone has any information, please contact me. I'd also want to talk to anyone with all of The Goliath Chronicle episodes on tape!
