Frederator Gets into the Spooky Spirit with New ‘Costume Quest’ & Holiday Special

Wow! Unlimited Media’s Frederator Studios is getting into the pre-Halloween swing with the news that brand-new episodes of its hit animated series Costume Quest are premiering October 11. Additionally, a 35-minute holiday special, Heroes on Holiday, will premiere on November 22. Coming off the heels of the series’ highly anticipated release earlier this year, seven half-hour episodes will debut as a continuation of season one on Amazon Prime Video this fall.

Part one of the series received immense critical praise, with Robert Lloyd of the Los Angeles Times saying that the program “starts well and gets better, growing looser and more poetic,” while noting the detailed animation and “fresh” writing.

Based on the eponymous video game series by Double Fine Productions (Psychonauts, Broken Age) and the world originally created by Tasha Sounart, Costume Quest is a comedic cartoon mystery tracking a team of four kids as they use their imaginations and a whole series of magical, transformative costumes to battle the sinister monster Bob Dickerson (voiced by Christopher McDonald) as he launches his diabolical plan to take over the sleepy town of Auburn Hollow.

Heroes on Holiday will kick-off the festive season when it premieres on November 22. Audiences will find out how Wren, Reynold, Everett and Lucy put Christmas in jeopardy trying to balance the desire to experience their favorite Auburn Hollow holiday traditions with their responsibilities as heroes.

“The debut of Costume Quest earlier this year thrilled fans of the cult hit video game as well as younger viewers just discovering the characters and story, and we are looking forward to continuing the adventure with these additional episodes, just in time for Halloween, followed by our festive holiday special” said Fred Seibert, CEO, Frederator and Chief Creative Officer, WOW!. “Our talented team has done a great job of bringing the charm of the beloved video game to life through the series and we are sure fans will be excited to see what comes next.”

Wow! Unlimited Media was established by Frederator founder and producer Seibert (Adventure Time, The Fairly OddParents) and Michael Hirsch, founder of Nelvana and Cookie jar, combining the animation studio power of Frederator Studios and Rainmaker/Mainframe. Wow! has since built a strong portfolio of top properties including Netflix hit Castlevania, ReBoot: The Guardian Code (Netflix), Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures (with Mattel for Netflix), Bee and PuppyCat (Cartoon Hangover) and Spy Kids Mission Control (Netflix).
