The third and final season of the studio’s whimsical series about a young girl thrust into an adventure on the surface of a fantastical post-apocalyptic Earth, premieres October 12 on Netflix.
DreamWorks Animation’s whimsical and action-packed 2D animated series, Kipo and The Age of Wonderbeasts, returns to Netflix October 12 for its third and final season.
After spending her entire life living in an underground burrow, a young girl named Kipo (Karen Fukuhara) is thrust into an adventure on the surface of a fantastical post-apocalyptic Earth. She joins a ragtag group of survivors as they embark on a journey through a vibrant wonderland where everything trying to kill them is downright adorable.
In the show’s inaugural season, Kipo saw herself as an ordinary kid, trying to get back to her father and the people of her burrow, hoping she could be safe and ordinary again. Following on the events of Season 1, we learned all was not well on the surface. With the burrow people under evil villain Scarlemagne’s mind control and her father his prisoner, Kipo had to quickly master her newly discovered mute abilities in order to save them. As she and her friends split up on a dangerous rescue mission, Kipo unearthed mysteries of the past that changed everything she thought she knew.
In the new season, after dethroning Scarlemagne, Kipo and the Brunch Bunch face a more daunting foe: Dr. Emilia, who plots to eliminate mutekind to make the surface “safe” for humans. But Kipo has an optimistic vision of a world where mutes and humans get along with each other. To achieve that dream, she must lean on her friends and rise to a role she may not be ready for.
The series is created, and executive produced by Radford Sechrist (How to Train Your Dragon 2) and executive produced and developed for television by Bill Wolkoff (The Man Who Fell to Earth).
The cast features Karen Fukuhara (She-Ra and the Princesses of Power) as “Kipo;” Sydney Mikayla (School of Rock) as “Wolf;” Coy Stewart (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as “Benson;” Deon Cole (black-ish) as “Dave;” a talking insect; and Dee Bradley Baker (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as the adorable mutant pig “Mandu”. Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us) returns as Kipo’s father “Lio Oak;” Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) as the power-hungry “Scarlemagne;” Jake Green (The Boss Baby: Back in Business) as mod frog “Jamack;” and Amy Landecker (Transparent) returns as the vengeful “Dr. Emilia.”
