DHX Media, a leading global children’s content and brands company, announced today that a second season of its hit animated comedy series, Supernoobs has been exclusively licensed by Turner’s Cartoon Network in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and in Asia Pacific. The 26-episode order, which has been greenlit by DHX Television’s Family Channel in Canada, is produced by DHX Media’s Vancouver animation studio.

“The global momentum continues for Supernoobs with a second ‘supercharged’ season, as characters Kevin, Tyler, Shope, and ‘the Roach’ get up to more crazy adventures,” said Josh Scherba, EVP, Content and Distribution. “Kids worldwide can’t get enough of this hilarious DHX Media original series, and Turner’s Cartoon Network as well as our own Family Channel are the perfect broadcast outlets to deliver a new season of thrills to them.”

Noob training is almost complete, and the superhero team is ready to take on Count Venamus and the Creators with a new attitude, new powers and all new episodes! But it won’t be easy: The Creators have stepped up their game since realizing Earth may be hiding a secret ancient weapon that could wipe out the space virus. Count Venamus and his new super-tough Mech-Army are ready to destroy the hidden Earth power – and the Supernoobs – unless they can defeat him first.
