Hotel Transylvania: The Series is to return to TVs for a second season on a global scale and will continue to pack the punch of Jazwares’ popular master toy line.
The television series renewal comes after the successful opening of Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, a film that set a new record for the franchise when it took over $476 million at the global box office. The total made it Sony Pictures’ biggest animated film of all time.
Hotel Transylvania is supported with its biggest consumer products programme to date, led, of course, by the master toy line from Jazwares, and building out a comprehensive programme with cross-category representation with top licenses across the globe.
The second season of the animated series will debut on the DIsney Channel in the US as well as Sony Pictures Animation global territories this autumn. Season two follows the adventures of Dracula’s teen daughter Mavis and her friends Hank N Stein, Pedro and Wendy Blob.
“We are excited to the world of Hotel Transylvania growing and expanding across various mediums,” said Jamie Stevens, executive vice president of Sony Pictures Worldwide Consumer Products.
“Hotel Transylvania has successfully captured both film and television audiences and we are thrilled to support the brands’ growth strategy with the biggest consumer products programme ever.”
The 2013 monster hit Hotel Transylvania was nominated for Golden Globe and scored the best September opening of all time in the US, only to have that record broken by its 2015 follow up, Hotel Transylvania 2.
