SUNRIGHTS has licensed the sophomore season of the animated series BEYBLADE BURST, titled BEYBLADE BURST EVOLUTION, to Disney XD in the U.S. and Canada and Corus Entertainment’s TELETOON in Canada.

BEYBLADE BURST EVOLUTION continues the story of a group of passionate Bladers. The show’s second installment comprises 51 episodes that are each 22 minutes long. It is supported by Hasbro’s launch of the BEYBLADE BURST SWITCHSTRIKE product line in this U.S. and Canada this January, as well as global updates of the property’s interactive app.

“The response worldwide to the BEYBLADE BURST series from broadcasters, licensing partners and agents, not to mention from the BEYBLADE fans, has been just extraordinary,” said Kaz Soeda, SUNRIGHTS’ managing director. “We’re thrilled that Corus and Disney are continuing with the next installment for the brand.”

Soeda added: “With Hasbro’s introduction of the SWITCHSTRIKE toy line and the incredible new capabilities it has included in the BEYBLADE BURST app, we are continuing to engage fans with fresh, new BEYBLADE BURST brand experiences.”
