41 Entertainment has signed a distribution deal agreement with Activision Blizzard Studios for Skylanders Academy. New York-based 41E will serve as the exclusive global sales agent for linear television and home entertainment distribution of the popular series.
The agreement comes as Netflix has set Skylanders Academy‘s season two premiere for October 6. Netflix has already renewed the show through its third season, with new episodes to premiere in 2018. The first season bowed exclusively on the SVOD giant globally in October 2016.
The series is based on the Skylanders videogame franchise that has raked in US$3.5 billion in retail sales to date since its launch in 2011. It follows the warriors of the Skylands as they are trained to protect the universe from evil-doers. Produced by Activision Blizzard Studios with Paris-based TeamTo overseeing the animation, the show is available in 25 languages.
