The toon will give fans a chance to actually hear their favorite characters as they delve into the lore of the Subway Surfers universe and follow the adventures of Jake, Tricky and Fresh. The animated show is slated to premiere this summer with 10, 4-minute episodes, followed by a long form series of 22-minute episodes.
