Netflix is sticking with Trollhunters. Entertainment Weekly reports the streaming service has renewed the series for a second season.
From Guillermo del Toro, the animated show follows Jim, a teenage boy who discovers an amulet that transforms into a warrior and defender of trolls. The voice cast includes Anton Yelchin, Charlie Saxton, Jonathan Hyde, Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman, Steven Yeun, and Amy Landecker.
Del Toro spoke with EW about season two, which is currently in production:
Well, we got very good news about how many people were watching the series, but we got confirmation that the next  episodes are a go. We’ve been working on a second season for a while now because we knew that if everything went right, we could proceed. We’re going to go ahead and now continue, rather than start, because we’ve been doing it for more than a year.”
And how will the series deal with the recent death of Anton Yelchin?
The reality and the beauty of this is that we can continue not only the storyline and the characters, but we have a huge swath of work from Anton that allows us to continue Anton through more than half the season.
Actually, coincidentally, we have an event in the last episode Anton did which allows us to sort of change his voice slightly, so the character stays — but we didn’t plan this. It was pure serendipity that we had that in the works. The beats of the second season have been set for years, and as of now, we have not altered or needed to alter a single beat.”
Season two of Trollhunters is slated to premiere on Netflix sometime later this year.
