Kids’ entertainment company, CAKE and award-winning Canadian producer Fresh TV have greenlit a third season of Total Dramarama, the prequel to the multi-award-winning franchise Total Drama.
The companies also announced that 52 new adventure episodes are in production currently and are set to premiere on Cartoon Network US and TELETOON in Canada mid-year 2021.
Aimed at six to 11 year olds, Total Dramarama features teen characters and troublesome toddlers from its original Total Drama. In this latest season, two more Total Drama characters, Sugar and Lightning will return as tiny versions of themselves to join Owen, Courtney, Duncan, Izzy, Beth, Leshawna and the rest of the gang, as they run riot under the slapdash supervision of Chef Hatchet!
CAKE CCO and managing director Ed Galton said, “Three seasons in three years! This has been an incredible journey for Total Dramarama and the ongoing Fresh TV-TELETOON-Cartoon Network-CAKE partnership. Together, we are delighted to introduce the latest instalment of this successful franchise. With two more toddlers joining daycare, the stories promise to be more hilarious and outrageous than ever!”
First launched on Cartoon Network US and TELETOON in 2018, Total Dramarama was an instant hit with the kids. The second season premiered earlier this spring and ranks third among all Cartoon Network shows (year-to-date), based on reach, with kids aged six to 11.
Total Dramarama was rolled out on Cartoon Network in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Benelux, Eastern Europe, Latin America and APAC. International broadcasters include POP in the UK Teletoon and Canal + in France, K2 and DeA Kids in Italy, Super3 in Spain, ABC in Australia and Noga in Israel.
Created by Tom McGillis and Jennifer Pertsch, Total Dramarama is produced by Fresh TV, in association with TELETOON and Cartoon Network US and distributed internationally by CAKE.
