The popular environmentally themed animated series will begin Season 2 production in first quarter 2021; show follows the adventures of six superpowered kids using science to save Earth.
Mondo TV has announced plans for the second season of its popular environmentally themed animated kids’ show MeteoHeroes. The series is co-produced with Meteo Operations Italia (MOPI). Season 2 will consist of 52 episodes of 11 minutes each. Production will start first quarter of 2021 and is expected to be completed by 2022.
The animated series MeteoHeroes is dedicated to climate and environmental issues with each episode focusing on issues related to ecology and nature. The show follows the adventures of six superpowered kids who can control weather phenomena. Working alongside scientists and meteorologists at their futuristic HQ based in Gran Sasso Mountain National Park in Italy, the MeteoHeroes are trained to control their powers and fulfil their mission: to save the Earth.
The announcement follows the continued growth in linear and streaming broadcast sales of the first season in numerous countries and the appointment of agents in several territories. This also comes on the heels of the successful first run on Cartoonito Italia. Also launched was the MeteoHeroes podcast inspired by the animated series, which teaches kids about sustainability.
“We’re enormously proud of MeteoHeroes; it’s the only cartoon in the world that combines fun, adventure and science – a show that gets kids thinking as well as giving them laughs and thrills,” explained Mondo TV president & CEO Matteo Corradi. “It’s not easy to balance entertainment and education, but this show does so perfectly – and the confirmed arrival in 2022 of the second series is a tribute to everyone involved in making MeteoHeroes such a big success.”
“We believe it’s important to give the very young a grounding in notions like respect for the environment, nature and the fight against climate change – but to do so in an accessible and entertaining way,” added MOPI CEO Luigi Latini. “MeteoHeroes does just that: it’s fun and exciting but it also helps kids to understand why and how we need to make our planet a better place to live.”
