There are very few shows which are meant for both kids and their parents and Animaniacs is one of them. The show has been entertaining masses since the 1990s and its hype still hasn’t died. The show got a reboot in 2020 and it premiered on Hulu however it was meant to run for 2 seasons. So, this brings us to the most searched question on the web; when will Animaniacs Season 2 release?
In a press conference Hulu announced that the 2nd season will soon be released in 2021. Along with this confirmation came a short clip from the show and it just made fans eager to find out more about Animaniacs Season 2. And if you are one such fan then you are in the right place because below you will find all the updates about your favorite cartoon!
The musical show is an animated anthology series. It follows the Warner siblings (Yakko, Wakko, and Dot) who create trouble wherever they go. And on the other hand there is a duo of Pinky and Brain who are troublesome in their own ways. The reboot was created by Wellesley Wild and Steven Spielberg exclusively for Hulu.
The show has had its fair share of controversies but being an animated show it slipped past through all the trouble. But now that the series has gained enough attention the showrunners will have to be careful with their episodes. With that being said, here is everything that you need to know about the upcoming season of Animaniacs!

Hulu has kept up with last year’s release date because Animaniacs Season 2 will release on 5th November 2021. Moreover, Hulu has also renewed the show for a third season! So, that is great news for the fans.
The second season is reported to have 13 episodes in total each running for about half an hour. All of this was confirmed in a teaser video which showed Wakko looking very impatient. He was so excited that he even squeezed one of his eyes out. Well, that is classic Wakko!
The main voice actors will play the same voices so fans have nothing to worry about. And fun fact: most of the cast from the original show came back for the reboot in 2020 and they will continue with their roles until the show ends!

Similarly some cast members won’t return for Animaniacs Season 2.
The showrunners have been very secretive about plot details so we can’t say anything definite about the upcoming season. But as it is an anthological series each episode will explore a new storyline. However, the creators did say this:
“pop-culture parodies, musical showstoppers, takedowns of historical baddies, and even some important safety tips.”
Each episode will be set in a new setting; they range from Warner Bros Studios to outer space and more. Pinky and Brain will yet again be the main characters and they are coming back with some new tricks! Some insider reports gave away a major chunk of plot:
“Yakko, Wakko and Dot return for an all-new season of this iconic, family-friendly series with something for everyone: pop culture parodies, musical showstoppers, takedowns of historical baddies and even some important safety tips. Join the Warners and Pinky and the Brain as they wreak havoc everywhere they go, from the Warner Bros. lot to an international beauty pageant, even all the way into outer space. Keep an eye out for season one favorites Starbox and Cindy, as well as some rejected Animaniacs characters that were left on the cutting room floor.”
