'She-Ra' Reboot Among Six New DreamWorks Animation Series Coming To Netflix

When Comcast acquired DreamWorks Animation, it wasn't clear if DWA's fruitful relationship with Netflix would continue. The worry was that as a multimedia firm with a vested interest in Cable Television, it would want to end the relationship with a company that could be seen as a competitor. While this could still prove to be the case in future, for now at least the relationship seems safe as DreamWorks TV and Netflix have announced a whole new slate of programs for 2018.

The biggest news is a reboot of the 80's cartoon She-Ra. Originally launched as a spin-off of He-Man and The Masters Of The Universe,  this time The Princess Of Power is making her comeback alone. The series is being pitched as " a modern take on the ‘80s girl power icon for a new generation of young fans", and comes from acclaimed comics author and animation writer Noelle Stevenson (Lumberjanes, Nimona, DuckTales).

She-Ra will be joined by a trio of series based on DWA's theatrical releases. First up will be Trolls: The Beat Goes On, followed by The Boss Baby: Back In Business and The Epic Tales Of Captain Underpants.

Harvey Street Kids is an original animated series about three best friends named Audrey, Lotta and Dot, from Emmy-nominated executive producer Brendan Hay and Emmy-nominated supervising producer Aliki Theofilopoulos. 

Finally, Guillermo del Toro's Tales Of Arcadia will continue in 2018, with not only a third season of Trollhunters but with 3 Below, the second chapter in GDT's expanded universe.

Currently, the only series with a confirmed release date is Trolls, which will arrive on January 19, 2018. The other series are set to debut at some point during 2018, but do not yet have a more specific date. Be sure to stay tuned to AFA, and we'll let you know as soon as we know more!
