Mattel Television has just announced that its new animated children’s series, Hot Wheels Let’s Race, will debut on Netflix in Spring 2024. Mixing out-of-this-world vehicles, adventurous characters and high-octane races, the 3DCG show is based on Mattel’s Hot Wheels property and promises “a high-speed comedy thrill ride for the whole family.”
The series follows the newest generation of racers: Coop, Spark, Mac, Brights, Axle, and Sidecar as they attend a racing camp that always puts the pedal to the metal, taking viewers on adventures through mind-blowing races, extreme stunt contests, and thrill-seeking challenges.
Mattel plans a lineup of Hot Wheels toys and consumer products featuring the show’s vehicles, settings, and storylines. Fans can purchase the Hot Wheels Ultimate T-Rex Transporter and the Hot Wheels Ultimate Garage, both featured in the series, now.
Hot Wheels Let’s Race was developed for television by Rob David, Vice President, Content Creative at Mattel Television (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles); Melanie Shannon, Senior Manager, Creative Content at Mattel Television (Masters of the Universe: Revelation); and Jordan Gershowitz (Sharkdog). Rob David, Christopher Keenan (Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go) and Fred Soulie (Hot Wheels: Ultimate Challenge) serve as Executive Producers, with Mike Roberts (Final Space) and Diane A Crea (Barbie: Epic Road Trip) as Producers. Sprite Animation Studios is producing the animation.
“Hot Wheels is a globally celebrated brand that ignites and nurtures the challenger spirit that lives within every kid in order to help them reach their true potential,” said David. “As Hot Wheels continues to grow and appeal to kids and families worldwide, Let’s Race will bring even more fun to fans of all ages with creative stories, engaging characters, and of course, fast vehicles.”
