Nelvana heads back to Hotel Transylvania: The Series
Disney Channel and Teletoon have officially renewed Nelvana and Sony Picture Animation’s Hotel Transylvania: The Series for a second season. The news was originally teased back in January.
Season two follows the wild (mis)adventures of Dracula’s teen daughter Mavis and her pals Hank N Stein, Pedro, and Wendy Blob. Dracula’s older sister, and minder of Mavis, Aunt Lydia remains supremely evil, but this time the audience will see her bonding a bit more with her niece and revealing that she does have a soft spot for family.
“We are excited to see the world of Hotel Transylvania growing and expanding across various mediums. Hotel Transylvania has successfully captured both film and television audiences and we are thrilled to support the brands’ growth strategy with the biggest consumer products program ever,” said Jamie Stevens, Executive Vice President of Sony Pictures Worldwide Consumer Products.
“We’re eager to sink our teeth into a second season of this fantastic series and feed its growing fan base,” said Scott Dyer, President, Nelvana. “Hotel Transylvania: The Series and its core quartet of characters have captured the hearts of kids everywhere, and we can’t wait to share many new stories about Mavis, her quirky friends, and the zaniest hotel on Earth.”
No release window for the show’s second season was shared. Hotel Transylvania: The Series debuted on Disney Channel on June 25, 2017, before rolling out onto Teletoon in Canada the following fall. The series can also be seen on Super RTL in Germany and debuted on Netflix in the United States last June, with more countries to be added throughout the remainder of the year. Season 2 will air on Disney Channel in the United States and abroad, with Teletoon returning for Canadian broadcast duties.
Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, the Hotel Transylvania film franchise has grossed over $1.3 billion at the global box office. Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation will launch on digital download on September 25th before becoming available on Blu-Ray and DVD on October 9th.
