During a screening of “Trollhunters Part 2,” series creator Guillermo del Toro announced the show is now part of a trilogy called Tales of Arcadia.

“Trollhunters” introduced Netflix viewers to Arcadia, where a secret civilization of trolls lives beneath the town. Though Arcadia seems normal on the surface, it lies at the center of magical lines that make it a nexus for battles between trolls, aliens, and wizards. The first installment will be followed by 3 Below in 2018 and Wizards in 2019.

The teaser trailer below previews how the three shows tie together to create “Tales of Arcadia.”


Here’s the synopsis of 3 Below:

Following Trollhunters, DreamWorks 3 Below will focus on two royal teenage aliens and their bodyguard who flee a surprise takeover of their home planet by an evil dictator and crash land in Arcadia. Now on the run from intergalactic bounty hunters, they struggle to blend in and adapt to the bizarre world of high school all the while attempting to repair their ship so they can return and defend their home planet.

And the synopsis of Wizards:

DreamWorks Wizards brings together the three disparate worlds of trolls, aliens and wizards who have found themselves drawn to Arcadia. The final chapter of the Tales of Arcadia culminates in an apocalyptic battle for the control of magic that will ultimately determine the fate of these supernatural worlds that have now converged.

“Trollhunters” featured the voices of Anton Yelchin, Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman, Steven Yeun, Anjelica Huston and more. The show was one of Yelchin’s final projects before his death in 2016.

The first season earned six wins at the Creative Arts Daytime Emmy Awards, including writing for an animated program, directing, and casting. Kelsey Grammer was awarded for voice acting.
