Netflix and CAKE, in partnership with Rovio Entertainment, are working on the new animated series Angry Birds: Summer Madness, based on the world of the Angry Birds.

The 40×11-minute series will debut globally on Netflix starting in 2021. The show will nod to the humor and tone of The Angry Birds Movie franchise while revealing a fresh new look.

Angry Birds: Summer Madness sees Red, Bomb and Chuck, as well as a cast of brand-new feathered friends, as tween birds at summer camp under the questionable guidance of their counselor Mighty Eagle.

Curtis Lelash, director of original animated series at Netflix, said, “Angry Birds have been a true phenomenon for kids around the world and we’re excited to bring them home to the nest at Netflix where they will be angrier and bird-ier than ever.”

Ed Galton, CCO and managing director at CAKE, said, “Angry Birds are about to smash the small screen and we are thrilled to be making the journey with Netflix as our global partner.”

Ville Heijari, CMO at Rovio said, “Angry Birds animated content plays a key role in our long-term franchise strategy. After more than a decade in hit games, blockbuster movies and licensed products, this is the Angry Birds’ first foray into a long-form series. We’re delighted to continue our partnership with CAKE and can’t wait to unveil the world of Angry Birds: Summer Madness to viewers on Netflix.”
