Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana has announced at MIPTV that it is teaming up with Frederator Studios (part of WOW! Unlimited Media) for a fourth season of digital platform hit Bravest Warriors — the property’s first to be made for broadcast. In addition to the buffed up 52 x 11 min. season produced by Nelvana Limited in Canada in association with Frederator, complementary digital content will also be delivered. Season 4 of Bravest Warriors will debut on Teletoon in Fall 2018.
All existing Bravest Warriors episodes produced by Frederator are also now available for license outside the US.
“Bravest Warriors‘ modern take on space exploration represents a new wave in animation,” said Scott Dyer, President, Nelvana. “We look forward to sharing the fantastic stories and signature cheeky humour of the series to new audiences and existing fans on a variety of platforms.”
The series follows four teenage heroes-for-hire in the year 3085 as they warp through the universe to save adorable aliens and their homeworlds, using the power of their emotions. Launched on YouTube in November 2012, the series rapidly grew an online fan base totaling 150 million views, 1.5 million likes, and over a billion minutes watched. Bravest Warriors was the 2013 Shorty Award winner for Best Web Show and the Online Film and Video (Animation) Honoree at The Webby Awards in 2015.
Graeme Jockic (Stanley Dynamic) is joining the voice cast as Chris, alongside returning cast members Liliana Mumy as Beth, John Omohundro as Danny, Ian Jones-Quartey as Wallow, Tara Strong as Plum, Michael-Leon Wooley as Impossibear, and Sam Lavagnino as Catbug. The series was created by Pendleton Ward (Adventure Time).
“We’re thrilled to partner with Nelvana to expand the global reach of Bravest Warriors and heighten the potential of the series we’ve loved for five years,” said Fred Seibert, President, Frederator Networks.
