Season two of Llama Llama, the pre-school animation from Genius Brands, will debut on Netflix later this month on 15 November.
The series follows up from the original, which debuted in January 2018, and will see Jennifer Garner return in the lead role as the voice of Mama Llama.
“Llama Llama is beloved in my home and has a special place in my heart,” the actress says. “Working on this beautiful series has been an honour, and it’s time to share season two! More fun and more heartwarming tales ahead for Mama Llama and her little Llama—I can’t wait for everyone to have a Llama Llama Day with Season Two, on Netflix!”
Produced by Jane Startz, Andy Heyward and Reed Duncan, and penned by Emmy winner Joe Purdy, the series boasts a distinctive visual style with art direction from Disney veteran Ruben Aquino. The pre-school series is based on Anna Dewdney’s bestselling book series about first childhood experiences and adventures, as well as the special connections between the lead character Llama, his Mama and his grandparents.
“We are thrilled to share the delivery of season two of Llama Llama and the upcoming premiere in November, which was accomplished through the support of Netflix and our creative team,” says Andy Heyward a producer on the show and Chairman & CEO of Genius Brands. “This is a major milestone that further reinforces both the success and longevity of a brand poised to become an evergreen property.”
As well as a new series, Andy says the company is ramping up its licensing and marketing activity to capitalise on the buzz around launch.
“We are leveraging the growing popularity of Llama Llama among both children and parents by accelerating our product and merchandising strategy with tier one retailers and manufacturers around the world, which, in turn, should help drive both revenue and enhanced profitability as these SKUs hit the market.”
