Bakugan Battle Planet brawls into second season


Bakugan is standing tall, like an awesome one. Spin Master’s transforming, battling marble franchise is back with Bakugan: Battle Planet and the fun won’t stop there. During last month’s MIPCOM conference in France, the toy manufacturer, alongside fellow Canadian animation company Nelvana, confirmed that the anime series has been renewed for a second season. Bakugan: Armored Alliance will debut in 2020 and feature 104 x 11 minutes new episodes.

Anticipation will start building this weekend, as Spin Master is holding an event in Los Angeles for well-known Bakugan superfans that’ll tease Armored Alliance. A live-stream will be available on the official Bakugan YouTube channel starting November 24th at 11:30 AM PT.

Produced by Spin Master Entertainment, Nelvana and TMS Entertainment, the 100 x 11-minute Bakugan: Battle Planet has been seen in over 110 countries. New broadcast partners include Cartoon Network (Spain, Italy, Middle East), Gulli and Canal J (France, Africa), POP (UK), SUPER RTL (Germany), RTL (Netherlands, Hungary, Croatia), , ), TVNZ (New Zealand), Star (Greece), 1+1 (Ukraine), PopTV (Slovenia), VMMa (Belgium), M6 (France, Africa), and Lithuania/SIA (Baltics).

In the United States, the series airs on Cartoon Network, with episodes streamed on Netflix and YouTube. The latter two are also available in Canada, where new episodes can be seen on Teletoon/YTV in English and on Télétoon in French. Bakugan: Battle Planet first debuted last December. Warner Home Video released the initial 13 episodes of the series on DVD on October 22nd.

The original Bakugan: Battle Brawlers anime launched in 2007 on TV Tokyo in Japan and Teletoon in Canada, before rolling out internationally in 2008. An immediate hit upon its global debut, the series ran for four seasons, encompassing 189 half-hour episodes before concluding in 2012. The original generation of the property was also a Canada-Japan co-production, between Spin Master, Nelvana, TMS Entertainment, Sega Toys and Japan-Vistec. The Japan-only CG-animated spinoff series Baku Tech! Bakugan ran in 2012/2013.
