Cartoon Network’s relaunched Ben 10 series will make its small-screen premiere in the US on April 10 at 5 p.m. The launch follows the show’s recent digital debut on the Cartoon Network App and January’s release of the Ben 10: Up to Speed mobile game.
Cartoon Network announced in 2015 that it would be relaunching the series with a 40 x 11-minute season.The reboot has since made its premiere last fall in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia, and signed Playmates Toys as master toy partner. (The original Ben 10 series, which premiered in 2006, generated more than US$4.5 billion in global retail sales.)
The toon follows 10-year-old Ben Tennyson, who finds a watch that transforms him into 10 different aliens and gains superpowers. It is produced by Cartoon Network Studios, created and executive produced by Man of Action Entertainment (Big Hero 6, Generator Rex), with John Fang (Mixels, Generator Rex) serving as executive producer.
