Since Madagascar‘s successful theatrical release in 2005, it was immediately followed by two sequels (Escape 2 Africa, Europe’s Most Wanted) and a spinoff film (Penguins of Madagascar) which collectively grossed over $2 billion at the worldwide box office. The upcoming series will mark the third TV spinoff and the first one centered on the four main characters following the Nickelodeon’s The Penguins of Madagascar and Netflix’s All Hail King Julien.
