The animated series DreamWorks Dragons will be airing new seasons only on Netflix, as just announced by the streaming service. All-new episodes are set to premiere on Netflix in the spring of 2015, with Hiccup and Toothless once again entertaining kids (and adults) with new adventures on the island of Berk.
“The How to Train Your Dragon franchise has been incredible to work with,” said Art Brown and Douglas Sloan, show runners on DreamWorks Dragons. “There is so much rich material available to us in the TV world that we can really dig in and create a different yet complementary experience to the feature films.”
“We are happy to be adding Dragons to our growing slate of original series for kids,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix Vice President, 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.”
The series features the voices of Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and TJ Miller who also voiced characters in the feature films. According to Netflix, the new episodes will “bridge the gap” between the two movies.
Weaving a continuous storyline, the television series works in tandem with the feature films and DVD specials, allowing fans to delve deeper into dragon lore. From the origin of Hiccup’s new flight suit and the secrets of his dragon blade to the young Viking’s budding romance with Astrid, DreamWorks Dragons on Netflix gives viewers rich details of the larger narrative with the introduction of new dragons, exotic places and worlds unknown.
