Hilda is a fantasy adventure-comedy animated tv series. The series is created by Luke Pearson. And, it is based on his graphic novels of the same name. The series follows the titular character, Hilda. A fearless young girl who goes on adventures accompanied by her friends. On her journey, she meets and befriends the mysterious creatures in and around Stolberg. Debuting on 21 September 2018, the first season features 13 episodes. And, it was immediately met with critical acclaim upon its release. Furthermore, the series has also received numerous accolades.
The success of the first season warranted a renewal for the animated series. So, in October 2018, Netflix renewed the series for a second season. The upcoming season was supposed to premiere sometime in 2020. But the current circumstances might have affected the production. In which case, the release date could be delayed to 2021. At the moment, we are awaiting an official announcement on this matter.
As mentioned before, the series is based on a graphic novel. The first season covered the first four books. Similarly, the upcoming season will be adapted from two new books. The books are called ‘Hilda and The Stone Forest’ and ‘Hilda and The Mountain King’, which released in October 2019. Apart from this, no new information about the plot has been revealed so far. But, we can assume that Hilda will meet more strange beings and interact with them in the next season.
An official word on the cast of the fantasy show hasn’t gotten out yet. Still, we presume that most of the cast will return to lend their voices in the upcoming season. The cast of season 3 will most probably feature:
Moreover, fans can also expect to see new characters and creatures in the upcoming season. Although, news on additions to the voice cast is not available yet.
Fans of the show will be delighted to know that an animated movie is also in the works. In December 2019, Silvergate Media confirmed plans for a movie special. The movie is supposed to have a runtime of 70 minutes. Additionally, the movie special will reportedly release sometime this year though we are still waiting for official confirmation on the release date.
The debut season featured 13 episodes, each having a 24-minute runtime. Likewise, the same can be expected from the second season. Also, since it will premiere on Netflix, all episodes would be released at once.
Unfortunately, a trailer or promo for the upcoming season hasn’t released yet. Though, we believe the trailer will drop sometime soon. Stay tuned for further updates on the trailer.
