Cartoon Network has been airing Total Drama Action on its Thursday night line-up for awhile now and it’s been a hit! Big in Canada on Teletoon, and now big in the US, both on TV and online. Continuing their trend of indepth minisites, as seen recently with Star Wars: the Clone Wars, Cartoon Network’s minisite for Total Drama is rocking on with the show! The series, brought to us by Cake Distribution and Fresh TV, continues where Total Drama Island left off with 15 of the contestants now in a deserted island setting.

Here our contestants will be exposed to new challenges with the chance to win an even bigger prize. The series will add a number of talk-show episodes where former contestants and fans comment on the competition.
