Activision Blizzard announced that its Netflix original series Skylanders Academy will be getting a third season. Production will begin this month. Animation will continue to be created by French studio TeamTO.
“Activision Blizzard Studios celebrates the opportunity to bring another season of quality programming to families around the world,” said Activision Blizzard Studio Co-President Nick van Dyk. “We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Netflix on this iconic franchise.”
The announcement comes earlier than expected, as season two has yet to even air. The second season has been completed and is due to air later this year. Season two adds new character Cynder, a new cadet at the academy, voiced by Felicia Day. More voice talent coming in season two: Susan Sarandon, Parker Posey, and Bobcat Goldthwait.
“Response to the show has been incredibly enthusiastic and we’ve taken a lot of creative inspiration from fans’ excitement,” said studio Co-President Stacey Sher. “We have a lot of fun in store for season three and are thrilled to give audiences even more of the characters they love.”
The first season of Skylanders Academy launched in the Fall of 2016. It stars Spyro (Justin Long), Stealth Elf (Ashley Tisdale), Eruptor (Jonathan Banks) and others as they learn how to be heroes at the titular Skylanders school.
The series is based on the multi-billion dollar toys-to-life Sklylanders franchise. Six main games have been released each year since 2011. The latest release was Skylanders Imaginators. You can read our review here.
