Animated Kids' Show Will Shift From Cartoon Network to Online Service THR
An animated children’s show will leave Cartoon Network and move to a streaming service. According to The Hollywood Reporter, "DreamWorks Dragons," based on “How to Train Your Dragon,” has found a new home on Netflix after two seasons on Cartoon.
New episodes will begin airing in spring 2015, with the new season providing a bridge between the 2010 movie and the sequel, which comes out in theaters in June. Both Jay Baruchel and America Ferrera, who provide the voices of lead characters in the movies, will return for the TV show, the piece adds.
“We are happy to be adding ‘Dragons’ to our growing slate of original series for kids,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix vice president of original content. “This is one of DreamWorks Animation’s most beloved set of characters and we know that kids and families will be enjoying them for years to come.”
