The adventures of ‘Ben 10’ will continue on for another season at Cartoon Network. The network announced today that the hit series has been renewed for a second season following the successful global launch about the boy with a mysterious watch.
According to Cartoon Network, since the show’s U.S. premiere in April, Ben 10 has reached nearly 41 million viewers across a wide spectrum of platforms including linear, mobile and VOD. In season two, the network will build on the fan excitement for Ben 10 by expanding its multi-screen world to include new console and mobile games along with a host of other immersive experiences.
Ben Tennyson, his cousin Gwen and Grandpa Max will embark on their greatest summer vacation ever during the second season. The heroic adventures will continue as Ben meets new aliens, friends and foes while discovering exciting twists and surprises within his Omnitrix!
Beginning Monday, May 29 at 6:00 p.m., Ben’s transformation into Wildvine, the 10th alien to be featured in the current first season will be revealed in two all-new episodes. Ben 10 is produced by Cartoon Network Studios and created and executive produced by Man of Action Entertainment (Big Hero 6, Generator Rex), with John Fang (Mixels, Generator Rex) as executive producer.
Earlier this month Cartoon Network also announced that Unikitty! will launch on the network. The new animated series follows the beloved character from The LEGO Movie, and a whole cast of friends into a world full of adventure, excitement and dance parties.
As ruler of the kingdom, Unikitty has busy days full of royal responsibilities. Unikitty is most interested in making sure everyone is happy and ridding the kingdom of negativity, but don’t misunderstand her optimism – she is one kitty not to be crossed. While she may be full of boundless energy and creativity, Unikitty is a force to be reckoned with if anyone gets in the way of spreading her positive vibes, especially if anyone makes her little brother and best friend, Puppycorn, sad. Also living in the castle are Dr. Fox, the resident scientist, and Unikitty’s trusty bodyguard, Hawkodile. Through it all, Unikitty and her friends make sure that every day is the happiest and most creative ever.
Unikitty! features veteran voice actors Tara Strong (Teen Titans Go!) and Grey Griffin (Be Cool Scooby-Doo!) along with Kate Micucci (Be Cool Scooby-Doo!), Roger Craig Smith (Regular Show), Eric Bauza (The Adventures of Puss in Boots) and H. Michael Croner (Review). Dan Lin (The LEGO Batman Movie, The LEGO Movie), Phil Lord (The LEGO Batman Movie, The LEGO Movie), Christopher Miller (The LEGO Batman Movie, The LEGO Movie), Roy Lee (The LEGO Batman Movie, The LEGO Movie), Jill Wilfert (The LEGO Batman Movie, The LEGO Movie) and Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) serve as executive producers, with Aaron Horvath (Teen Titans Go!) as supervising producer. Edward Skudder (Dick Figures) and Lynn Wang (Star vs. Forces of Evil) serve as producers.
