DHX Media, the leading global children’s content and brands company, has announced that a second season of its hit animated comedy series Supernoobs has been exclusively licensed by Turner’s Cartoon Networks in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and in Asia Pacific.
The 26-episode order, which has been greenlit by DHX Television’s Family Channel in Canada, has been produced by DHX Media’s Vancouver animation studio.
“The global momentum continues for Supernoobs with a second supercharged season as characters Kevin, Tyler, Shope and the Roach get up to more crazy adventures,” said Josh Scherba, EVP, Content and Distribution. “Kids worldwide can’t get enough of this hilarious DHX Media original series, and Turner’s Cartoon Network as well as our own Family Channel are the perfect broadcast outlets to deliver a new season of thrills to them,” he added.
These newly announced broadcast deals come on the heels of a recently announced agreement with Hulu which saw the digital service take exclusive SVOD and FVOD rights for season one of Supernoobs in the U.S.
The deals highlight the continued global demand for DHX Media original content across linear and digital services.
In season two of Supernoobs, it’s more super chilling, more super villains and more super battle ball action as the Supernoobs begin to master their powers! Noob training is almost complete, and the superhero team is ready to take on Count Venamus and the Creators with a new attitude, new powers and all new episodes!
But it won’t be easy: The Creators have stepped up their game since realizing Earth may be hiding a secret ancient weapon that could wipe out the space virus. Count Venamus and his new super-tough Mech-Army are ready to destroy the hidden Earth power – and the Supernoobs – unless they can defeat him first.
Aimed at kids aged between six to 11, Supernoobs is created by Scott Fellows who is also behind another DHX Media hit Johnny Test.
