Video streaming service Netflix is about to roll out a “Madagascar” spinoff, with the original series “All Hail King Julien” set to premiere on Dec. 19, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
The spinoff is the second project to come out of Netflix’s original programming agreement with DreamWorks Animation, the story notes, following “Turbo Fast,” which debuted in 2013.
“All Hail King Julien” will air its first five episodes starting Dec. 19, with additional 22-minute episodes slated for release throughout 2015, the story notes.
“We are excited to add a series focused on one of the most beloved characters from ‘Madagascar’ to our growing lineup from DreamWorks Animation,” said Netflix original content Vice President Cindy Holland. “King Julien knows how to throw a great party and we expect families around the world will enjoy spending their holidays with him.”
