Esme & Roy Greenlit for Season 2


The award-winning original animated series Esme & Roy, produced by Nelvana and Sesame Workshop, is returning for a second season.

The new season (26×11 minutes) and a special (1×22 minutes) will air on Treehouse in Canada and HBO in the U.S. in early 2020. Voice talent includes Millie Davis (Wonder, Odd Squad) and Patrick McKenna (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs series, Hotel Transylvania: The Series).

“Since its debut, Esme & Roy has sparked strong emotional connections with kids and families around the world for its exceptional storytelling, brilliant animation, and loveable characters,” said Scott Dyer, presiden of Nelvana Enterprises. “With a second season greenlit, and a wave of international distribution deals, we’re delighted to build on the momentum of Esme & Roy and present an all-new season with our incredible partners at Sesame Workshop.”

“As Sesame Workshop celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, we continue our legacy of innovation with more content in production than ever before,” said Scott Chambers, senior VP/general manager of educational media and licensing for North America at Sesame Workshop. “We’re thrilled to collaborate with Nelvana on a new season of the beautifully animated Esme & Roy and look forward to bringing even more laughter and learning to viewers worldwide.”
