DHX Original Supernoobs Set for Sophomore Season


ADVERTISEMENT

Family Channel in Canada has greenlit a second installment of DHX Media’s animated comedy Supernoobs, with the new season being exclusively licensed by Turner’s Cartoon Network in EMEA and Asia Pacific.

The 26×22-minute second installment will continue the adventures of the titular characters as they begin to master their powers. The show, which is meant for kids between the ages of 6 and 11, was created by Scott Fellows. It is produced by DHX Media’s Vancouver animation studio.

These new broadcast agreements follow a recently announced deal with Hulu, which took the exclusive SVOD and FVOD rights for season one in the U.S.

“The global momentum continues for Supernoobs with a second ‘supercharged’ season, as characters Kevin, Tyler, Shope and ‘the Roach’ get up to more crazy adventures,” said Josh Scherba, DHX Media’s executive VP of content and distribution. “Kids worldwide can’t get enough of this hilarious DHX Media original series, and Turner’s Cartoon Network as well as our own Family Channel are the perfect broadcast outlets to deliver a new season of thrills to them.”
