Every month, six episodes are selected based on a central theme and re-released aside their original versions as "Vault Picks". They feature new sketches hosted by Synthia in her own segment "Synthia's Selects", where she interviews one of the SOL crewmates with questions relating to the movie.

     Season 14 - TBC 
A 14th season was announced in 2023 and a crowdfunding effort began later that year. However, a combination of the economic downturn, fan unhappiness over delays in receiving awards from the Season 13 campaign and the Hollywood strikes stopping most of the cast from doing publicity resulted in the campaign falling well short of its target and Joel Hodgson said at the conclusion they would take some time to look at their next moves.
