DreamWorks Dragons Flies Over to Netflix


Starting in spring 2015, the animated series will appear exclusively on the streaming service

DreamWorks Dragons, a TV series based on the popular How to Train Your Dragon films, will soon appear exclusively on Netflix, the streaming service announced Thursday. New episodes of the animated series, which stars America Ferrera and Jay Baruchel as young Viking dragon riders, will air in spring 2015. Prior seasons aired on Cartoon Network.

“There is so much rich material available to us in the TV world that we can really dig in and create a different yet complementary experience to the feature films,” said showrunners Art Brown and Douglas Sloan. ”The upcoming episodes promise “new dragons, exotic places, and worlds unknown,” and are intended to fill in the plot details between the original 2010 film and its sequel, which arrives this summer.

Netflix, which has recently enjoyed major successes with original series like House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black, has been adding several children’s programs to its offerings since last summer, when it struck a deal with DreamWorks for 300-plus hours of original programming, said Variety.
