Ben 10 Renewed for Second Season and Gets New Games
Given the popularity of the Ben 10 franchise, this news is not surprising but it is still a welcome one – according to a recent announcement from Cartoon Network, the most current iteration of the Ben 10 animated series has just been renewed for a second season after its highly successful global launch last April in the U.S., managing an impressive 41 million views across a wide range of platforms that include linear, mobile, and VOD.
Beginning Monday, May 29 at 6:00 p.m., Ben’s transformation into Wildvine, the 10th alien to be featured in the current first season will be revealed in two all-new episodes. Ben 10 is produced by Cartoon Network Studios and created and executive produced by Man of Action Entertainment (Big Hero 6, Generator Rex), with John Fang (Mixels, Generator Rex) as executive producer.
While details on the rest of the second season are still sparse, it is said that the network plans to build on the fan excitement by taking advantage of the multi-screen phenoma – new console and mobile games are forthcoming alongside other immersive experiences.
