“DreamWorks Dragons” TV Series Moving to Netflix
DreamWorks Dragons, based on the 2010 film How to Train Your Dragon, will move to Netflix for its third season in 2015.
The half-hour series has aired on Cartoon Network for its first two seasons of 40 episodes, which bowed in August 2012. The second season wrapped in March and the show hasn’t been seen on the network since.
Unlike other DreamWorks movies turned into television series – The Penguins of Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness and Monsters vs. Aliens (all on Nickelodeon) – the network had little control and didn’t make the series in-house.
DreamWorks is now exclusively releasing series through Netflix. Turbo FAST premiered late last year and new Puss in Boots and King Julien series are in development.
