Cartoon Network has announced that their Total Drama series will return for its fourth season on June 5th. The show’s renewal was announced on March 28th.
Total Drama debuted on June 5, 2008 and the last episode of season three aired on November 15, 2010. It’s unclear how many episodes are being produced for season four but the past three seasons have had 20-28 installments each.
Here’s the Cartoon Network press release with further details:
The Drama Is Back! “Total Drama Revenge of the Island” Coming to Cartoon Network
Fan Favorite Animated Reality Series Returns Tuesday, June 5 at 7:30 p.m. (ET, PT)
The contention, the rivalries, the tension, the money and… Chef are all coming back to Cartoon Network on Tuesday, June 5, at 7:30 p.m. for the animated reality competition series Total Drama Revenge of the Island produced by Fresh TV and distributed by Cake Entertainment. In past seasons egotistical series host Chris McLean brought the show to diverse locales including a movie set and a voyage around the world, but now it’s back to the island where the drama began in season one -this time with an all-new cast! Since the show has gone global, Camp Wawanakwa has been abandoned and turned into a toxic nuclear waste dump-the perfect place for new and painful, cringe-inducing challenges!
Fighting for the one million dollar prize are thirteen wild new players. Athletic overachiever Lightning, wide-eyed bubble-boy Cameron, multiple personality Mike, take-no-prisoners jock Jo, devious Scott, fame-monger Dakota, indie chick Zoey, compulsive liar Staci, strong silent genius B, fake tan and hairspray lover Anne Maria, moonchild Dawn, nice-guy gamer Sam and cadet Brick.
This season promises to be the toughest ever. As usual, the Total Drama contestants will be split into two teams, this time there are no reward challenges and one teen will be voted off in every episode. There is one chance for salvation when host Chris unveils an immunity statue, shaped in his own likeness, to be hidden somewhere on the island. Whoever finds the statue wins immunity from elimination for one radioactive campfire ceremony. Those chances are slim and all but one contestant will be catapulted off the island via the Hurl of Shame!
CartoonNetwork.com will also feature a Total Drama Revenge of the Island game where contestants will attempt to balance a portion of the Island’s mutant squirrel population on their bodies all while standing precariously on crudely built structures, trying to dodge meatballs being pelted at them by Chef. The player’s goal is to topple each contestants one-by-one using Chef and several types of meatball ammo ranging from large meatballs that pack a punch to explosive and corrosive meatballs that damage the structures the contestants are positioned on. The game has 30+ levels to master and will launch on May 29.
