Trollhunters Renewed Season 2

Trollhunters Renewed for Season 2, Will Feature the Late Anton Yelchin's Voice

Teenage Jim’s trollhunting adventures will continue, now that Netflix has officially greenlit Guillermo Del Toro’s Trollhunters for a second season.

Season 1 of the DreamWorks Animation series premiered on Dec. 23, and consisted of 26 episodes. The sophomore run will be released later this year, and feature 13 new episodes.

Production on Season 2 — in which Jim ventures deeper into the Troll world to battle the vicious leader of the Darklands, while his team works to maintain order in the human world — has actually been underway for some time. As such, Anton Yelchin had recorded a wealth of voice work, as Jim, prior to his June 2016 death, at age 27, in a vehicular accident.

“[W]e’re not only going to second season, but we’re going to be able to preserve a really large part of it with Anton’s voice,” Del Toro told

Trollhunters‘ renewal announcement comes on the heels of Netflix also ordering new seasons of Love, The OA and Travelers.

    So, so, so excited. Watched it in the background while taking down Christmas decorations and got really sucked into it. High production values and good storytelling.

  2. JC1 says:

    I’m glad to hear it. I really enjoyed the first season.

    Excellent news.

    I had zero interest for this show in my Netflix queue based on nothing more than an unfair Pre-Judgement of based mainly on the title.

    Then, ‘Collider TV Talk’ ran 2 Interview Specials with The Writers Dan Hageman & Kevin Hageman & Exec Producer Marc Guggenheim extolling the virtues of an ongoing story-rich narative more in line with the spirit/tone of Stranger Things.

    I was hooked after 3 episodes. Binged all 26 in less than 3 days.

    So glad to hear this news and Happy to know TVLine is covering it.
