Following yesterday’s launch of Activision Blizzard’s new CP division, the interactive entertainment company’s first original series Skylanders Academy has been renewed by Netflix for a third season.
Skylanders Academy is based on Activision’s US$4-billion Skylanders video game franchise. Production on the third season will begin this month, and new episodes will debut in 2018. Paris-based TeamTO is overseeing the animation.
The show’s first season premiered exclusively on Netflix globally in October. The second season will be available to stream this year.
Activision Blizzard Studios launched last year to create original content based on the company’s library. And the latest iteration of the toys-to-life franchise, Skylanders Imaginators, which allows players to create their own characters and encourages social media engagement, also debuted at US retail in October.
