Global SVOD Netflix has already ordered a second season of its original animated kids fantasy series Dragon Prince, just weeks after the launch of season one.
Produced by Netflix and Wonderstorm, Dragon Prince has been renewed for a nine-episode follow-up order, and the new eps will be available sometime in 2019. Set in the land of Xadia, the series’ story line is about three kids on opposite sides of a magical conflict who discover a secret that could change everything and restore peace to their worlds.
The first season of Dragon Prince, also nine episodes, was released on September 14. Its team includes co-creators Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond, along with executive producer Giancarlo Volpe. Ehasz and Volpe were creative drivers on Nickelodeon’s popular The Last Airbender series, which Netflix just announced it’s adapting into a live-action series.
Since its debut, Dragon Prince has held onto a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, despite a controversial animation style spearheaded by Vancouver animation studio Bardel Entertainment. Ehasz has publicly said that if the series was renewed for a second season, the team would try to improve the animation, however there is no word on whether Bardel will be attached for season two.
