Cartoon Network USA Mighty Magiswords Renewed For A Second Season

Today (09/02/2017), Cartoon Network USA’s press office has announced that Mighty Magiswords has been renewed for a second season. Usually, when Cartoon Network shows get full international distribution they tend to get a second season (excluding Over The Garden Wall which was a mini-series). Cartoon Network has put a lot of effort into the digital element of the show, including apps and websites, so a season renewal was the next logical step.

Mighty Magiswords follows two brother and sister warriors named Prohyas and Vambre, they use different magical swords with unusual but useful abilities to help out the people of Lyvsheria.

Cartoon Network Games launched their Magimobile companion app in the United States last November, the app allows players to have their very own virtual collection of Magiswords as featured in the show, players can gain swords by completing various quests, by watching video clips or by watching the show on the TV by using the app’s audio recognition technology.

The MagiMobile app is ranked as a top five app overall on iTunes, with 2 million downloads and 20 million swords collected.

Next week (16/02/2017), Cartoon Network Games will be releasing a brand new Mighty Magiswords game called “Surely You Quest”, which is a RPG battling game. Players will be able to use their swords obtained using the Magimobile app within the game. The new game will be available for iOS, Android and Fire devices and will be available to download for free on iTunes, Google Play and the Amazon App Store.

More broadcasting rights deals are currently in the pipeline.

Gulli has also aired Cartoon Network’s The Amazing World of Gumball and Disney Channel Germany is currently airing episodes of We Bare Bears.

The addition of The Powerpuff Girls on free-to-air children’s channels will help to maximise exposure of The Powerpuff Girls franchise especially as a range of toys (from master toy licensee Spin Master) and merchandise is in the process of being rolled out across Europe.

Powerpuff Girls toys are now available to buy in the UK at Argos and The Entertainer.

In the Arab world, a free version of Cartoon Network called Cartoon Network Arabic airs The Powerpuff Girls (alongside premium versions – Cartoon Network MENA English and Cartoon Network Hindi). In the United Arab Emirates, Toy Store holds exclusive retail rights over Powerpuff Girls toys. Dubai is also home to IMG Worlds of Adventure, the theme park has a Cartoon Network zone and features a Powerpuff Girls themed ride – Mojo Jojo’s Robot Rampage

Additional FTA broadcast deals will be announced shortly.
