Drama (formerly Totally Dramatic) is an animated reality TV series created by Ethan Bump and Kiera Emerson. She left the show after Season 2. Originally, the show was to end at the end of Season 4, but of course Season 5 was greenlit due to the popularity of the series. Mekapanema TV introduced a brand new logo for the series for Total Drama: Camp Ritchatakwa in celebration of the show's 10th season. Another new logo was introduced for Seasons 15-17.
The series was renewed in May 2017 after a long hiatus, with the 18th season premiering on May 16th, 2017. The show was then renewed through Season 20.
The show was created on July 23rd, 2015 with the first episode and pilot Thyme After Time, airing on that day. The first season's animation was pretty crude, and it wasn't in HD, unlike the other seasons. The series continued for more seasons, each having improved animation and better quality HD. The series has had two mostly unrelated spin-offs, Total Drama Survivor and Camp TV. Camp TV came to an end in January 2016 and TDS ended in October 2016.
The drama in Drama (confusing, I know) has slowly gone down as the seasons have passed. Total Drama Mekapanema had more interaction between campers than later seasons, which would mostly focus on the challenge rather than interaction. However, this changed in Total Drama: Sunset Mountains, Season 9, when more interaction came back into play. Dramatic and romantic moments were re-added to the series. The 'Dock of Shame' elimination music from Total Drama, the show Drama is based off of, was added to the eliminations. However, sometimes it was cut off by other sounds. Total Drama: Camp Ritchatakwa would bring back the 'Dock of Shame' music, the dramatic music, and the romantic dramatic music from Total Drama, as well.
