Hulu renews Animaniacs for third season, greenlights Mike Tyson biopic
During the streaming platform’s panel during the Television Critics Association’s Winter Press Tour, Hulu announced that not only has it renewed the well-received reboot of Animaniacs, but has also greenlit an eight-episode biopic series centered on iconic boxer Mike Tyson.
Following a successful first season and practically blowing up the internet, garnering the most social mentions of any Hulu Original to date over its first season’s opening weekend, Animaniacs has been renewed for a third season consisting of 10 episodes, while the second season is slated to debut later this year.
After returning to their beloved home, the Warner Bros. Water Tower, the Animaniacs waste no time in causing chaos and comic confusion as they run loose through the studio and beyond, turning the world into their personal playground. Joining Yakko, Wakko and Dot are fan-favorite characters Pinky and the Brain, who will also return to continue their quest for world domination.
Hulu, Amblin Television and WB Animation join forces again to extend the legacy of the iconic, family-friendly series, with Steven Spielberg returning as executive producer alongside Sam Register, President of Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios, and Amblin TV Co-Presidents Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, while Wellesley Wild serves as showrunner and executive producer and Gabe Swarr serves as co-executive producer.
