Drew Massey Talks 'The Barbarian and the Troll' Season 2

Nickelodeon’s all-new live-action puppet comedy series The Barbarian and the Troll became an instant hit with fans when the show premiered in April, and with the series recently completing its 13-episode first season, fans have been wondering whether we'll see Brendar, Evan and the rest of the gang in action once again.

Whilst a second season of The Barbarian and the Troll is still to be announced, in a recent interview with BubbleBlabber, expert puppeteer Drew Massey (Mutt & Stuff, Sid the Science Kid), who co-created the series along with Mike Mitchell (Trolls, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part) hinted what fans can expect if a season two is made, and that they're ready and rearing to go making it!

Marcus Gibson: So if you and Mitchell were given the opportunity to make a season two, are there any specific ideas you’d like to use regarding the show’s stories and characters?

Drew: Tons of them, but I can’t reveal them yet.  You’re just gonna have to see season two.  Now, if they don’t make a season two, then you know, we’ll tell you what our plans were, and everybody can be sad that it didn’t happen.

Marcus: Well, the end of the season one finale did tease us of a possible season two.

Drew: Absolutely.

Marcus: So if that happens, I’m more than willing to see what happens next.

Drew: Great.  I’m glad.  Yes, stay tuned because there’s a lot more of our Barbarian and the Troll characters to do.  Plus our owl and our wizard and our skeleton army general and some other villains may make a return that day.  Who knows, I don’t know.  We’ll see.  We haven’t written it yet, but we do have plans.

Marcus: Well, I hope those plans come into effect pretty soon.

Drew: Thanks.  Me too.  We’re all just sitting around waiting for them to give us the green light.  But once they do, we will leap into action and start fleshing it…well, actually we already started fleshing it out, but we will actually sit down and write scripts and start building things, which is very exciting.

Marcus: Excellent.

You can ready Marcus' awesome interview with Drew, in which they talk about Nickelodeon’s newest series as well as Drew's puppetry skills presented in his other movies and shows, in full on BubbleBlabber!

From Fox News:

"My eldest is Spencer and she’s now on a cartoon," [Kelsey Grammer] gushed. "It’s a puppet show on Nickelodeon called ‘Barbarian and the Troll.’ And my 7-year-old son loves that. He loves her and can’t get enough of it."
