Disney XD’s Big Hero 6 animated series, which continues the story of the 2014 animated hit film, has already been renewed for a second season before it premieres this fall.
The show comes from the team behind Disney Channel’s animated series Kim Possible, including executive producers Mark McCorkle, Bob Schooley and Nick Filippi. The show also features the return of the film’s voice cast, including Ryan Potter as Hiro, Scott Adsit as Baymax, and Stan Lee as Fred’s Dad.
“Mark, Bob and Nick have delivered a dynamic adventure series that follows the Big Hero 6 superhero team, led by audience favorites Hiro and Baymax. We are honored to have the opportunity to further expand the elaborate world and engaging characters of ‘Big Hero 6 The Series’ with this early second season order,” Marc Buhaj, senior vice president of programming and general manager of Disney XD, said in a statement accompanying the announcement.
