My teenage daughter introduced us to the DreamWorks/Netflix whimsical, post-apocalyptic series: Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts. We have enjoyed this quirky adventure and are very curious to watch the complex story further unfold in Season Two:
This Netflix original series returns June 12 with 10 all-new episodes! We can’t wait to see the high-stakes thrills that await in season 2 as Kipo (Karen Fukuhara) embarks on a mission to find Scarlemagne and free her people from his mind control.
Kipo and the Age of the Wonderbeasts is a story of a young girl, who has spent her entire life living in an underground burrow. In season one, Kipo 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.
Following the season one cliff-hanging finale, all is not well on the surface. With the burrow people under Scarlemagne’s mind control and her father his prisoner, Kipo must quickly learn to master her newly-discovered mute abilities in order to save them. She and her friends split up on a dangerous rescue mission, while Kipo’s journey of self discovery unearths mysteries of the past that change everything she thought she knew.
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), return to the city of Las Vistas and join Kipo and her gang on an even greater adventure. Kipo and the Age of the Wonderbeasts season 2 premieres on Netflix worldwide on June 12, 2020.
