Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir Season 2 Slated for May 2017
posted on by Egan Loo
Zag Entertainment founder Jeremy Zag revealed on Thursday that the second season of the animated series Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir will debut next May. Zag did not specify which countries will show the series first in May.
The 3D CG Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir series debuted in South Korea last September, before premiering in the United States on Nickelodeon on December 6. The series is also running in France, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, EMEA, Latin America, Italy, Brazil, Belgium, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and Lithuania.
Nickelodeon describes the series:
The 26-episode series follows two junior high students, Marinette and Adrien, chosen to save Paris from the evil doings of a mysterious super-villain. The storylines and adventures are rich with friends, family, fun, secret identity, transformation, villains, fashion, creativity and more, all within the spectacular backdrop of Paris.
As secret identity superheroes Ladybug and Cat Noir, Marinette and Adrien must balance the crazy antics of normal teen life while stopping weekly baddies deployed by Hawk Moth to steal their powers and take over the world. With the help of their magical pets, and miraculous jewels, the duo transform into their alter egos, Ladybug and Cat Noir, and are granted powers of speed, strength, agility and a clear mind.
Zag Entertainment, Toei Animation, and Method Animation co-produced a 2D-animated promotional video for the project announcement before relaunching it as a CG-animated series. Zag and Toei Animation are co-producing a 2D-animated OVA for the series, though it will include Cat Noir's design from the 3D CG-animated series, not the older design used in the promotional video.
Zag revealed in November that seasons 2 and 3 are in progress, and Nickelodeon revealed in June that a total of 65 episodes (including the first 26-episode season) are planned so far. At the time, Nickelodeon said that the second season "is set to premiere in early summer 2017."
