Emmy Award winner Tony Hale’s animated comedy about the misadventures of a curious, loveable chicken returns to Netflix on March 20.
Our cheerful, energetic, and eternally curious chicken, Archibald Strutter, his three siblings, Sage, Finly, and Loy, and lovable sidekick, Bea, are all back for another round of enjoyable mishaps in Season 2 of DreamWorks Animation’s animated comedy adventure, Archibald's Next Big Thing. Based on the book, “Archibald’s Next Big Thing” by two-time Emmy Award winner Tony Hale (who also stars and executive produces) and Tony Biaggne, the new season debuts March 20 on Netflix.
In Season 2, Archibald once more embraces one misadventure after another, stumbling, falling but always springing back up and finding his way, however twisting and winding, to his egg-shaped home in Crackridge! The gangly, happy chicken’s hilarious antics and unstoppable enthusiasm shows everyone the importance of being present and celebrating life's littlest moments.
Archibald's Next Big Thing features an all-star voice cast, including Hale as “Archibald,” Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) as “Sage,” Chelsea Kane (Baby Daddy, Fish Hooks) as “Loy,” Jordan Fisher (Dancing With Stars, Hamilton, To All the Boys I've Loved Before 2) as “Finly,” Kari Wahlgren (Ducktales, Rick and Morty) as “Bea,” and Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) as the playfully sarcastic “Narrator.”
The series is created and executive produced by Hale, executive produced by Eric Fogel (Descendants: Wicked World, Celebrity Deathmatch), and was developed for television by Drew Champion (Game Talk Live) and Jacob Moffat (Tiny Tiny Talk Show).
The series also features several guest voices, including Jane Lynch (Glee, 40-Year-Old Virgin), Casey Wilson (Happy Endings), Chris Parnell (Archer, 30 Rock), John Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Henry Winkler (Arrested Devleopment, Steven Universe, Big Bang Theory), Ana Gasteyer (SNL), Gary Cole (Veep), Taylor Trensch (Dear Evan Hansen) among others.
