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

Trollhunters Renewed Season 2

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.
