The hilarious stop-motion comedy series Crossing Swords has only just been released on Hulu, but fans are already asking if and when they expect a second season.
When thinking about stop-motion animation, the majority of people will think of television shows back in the ‘70s and ‘80s.
However, stop-motion is making a return with Hulu’s latest comedy series, Crossing Swords.
The series focuses on Patrick, a hopeful peasant who gets a job as a squire to the King but quickly realises he is surrounded by cheaters and crooks.
Season 1 of Crossing Swords may have only just premiered on Hulu, but fans are already asking if the show has been renewed and if so, when they can expect a season 2.
Crossing Swords season 2: Renewal status
- Fans of Crossing Swords will be happy to hear that the series will return for a second season.
This according to The Hollywood Reporter who claims that the show will return with a 10-episode run for season 2.
Whilst season 1 was met with lacklustre reviews from critics, the stop-motion comedy hit home with many fans, scoring an 85% on Rotten Tomatoes.
With the coronavirus pandemic delaying the production of many live-action shows, networks seem to be turning towards animation. The work can be done remotely and especially with the case of Crossing Swords, is all produced from one or two buildings with the same group of people.
Crossing Swords season 2: Release date
At the time of writing, there is no offocial release date but fans are hopeful of a late-2020 premiere.
However, considering how long it took for season 1 to be produced (close to two years), and the global coronavirus pandemic- a more realistic prediction would be mid-2021;
However, what could also delay the production is the voice actors themselves. This is one of the issues with having Hollywood stars voicing characters in animated shows, sometimes they become too busy with other projects to continue a series.
For example, Nicholas Hoult recently starred in Hulu’s popular historical comedy series ‘The Great’ – another must-watch show. Many people are expecting this show to get a second season before too long, so chances are that Hoult may be tied down to other projects before Crossing Swords season 2 goes into production.
Crossing Swords season 2: Storyline
The thing is with the storyline for shows like Crossing Swords, is that the plot could literally go in any direction it chooses – and that’s what makes it great.
The overarching storyline for season 2 will obviously be Sloane/Danielle and the old king attempting another coup. Hopefully, Patrick will get his knighthood too and we could definitely see something happening between him and Princess Blossom.
However, one of the best things about shows like Crossing Swords is that the plot is so random you can’t expect anything from episode to episode. The series takes you to new places and delivers laughs each step of the way along that journey.
Season 1 of Crossing Swords is available right now on Hulu.
