DreamWorks Animation and Netflix have officially announced that Guillermo Del Toro’s “Trollhunters” has been renewed for a second season.
The 13-episode second season finds Jim (Anton Yelchin) venturing deeper into the Troll world to battle Gunmar, the vicious leader of the Darklands, and save the baby brother of Claire Nuñez (Lexi Medran0).
Despite Yelchin’s passing last year, del Toro has confirmed that he had already wrapped almost all his voice work on the second season before his passing.
“We’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. We have an event in the last episode Anton did which allows us to sort of change his voice slightly, so the character stays – but we didn’t plan this. It was pure serendipity that we had that in the works. The beats of the second season have been set for years, and as of now, we have not altered or needed to alter a single beat.”
The second season of “Trollhunters” is set to release later in 2017.
