Netflix Lines Up New Season of Ask the StoryBots


Netflix is set to premiere the second installment of its Emmy-winning original animated show Ask the StoryBots later this summer.

Produced by JibJab Bros. Studios, Ask the StoryBots sees a group of colorful little creatures help answer various questions from children. Season two will feature a number of live-action celebrity guest appearances, including Snoop Dogg, Ali Wong and Edward Norton, who will explain what electricity is. It launches worldwide on the streaming service on August 24.

“We’re taking Ask the StoryBots to the next level for season two,” said Evan Spiridellis, co-creator and co-executive producer, and JibJab’s chief creative officer. “The adventures are bigger and more epic, and our art team has done an incredible job mixing 2D and 3D animation, puppetry, stop-motion and live action to be more visually stunning than ever.”

“It’s been doubly exciting that we’re launching season two worldwide on Netflix just as we pass 500 million views on YouTube,” added Gregg Spiridellis, co-creator and co-executive producer, and CEO of JibJab. “Our fanbase—which includes both kids and adults—has continued to grow exponentially since we launched StoryBots on YouTube, and we can’t wait to introduce these characters to an even wider audience.”
