Netflix Orders Angry Birds: Summer Madness Animated Series

Netflix has announced that it has ordered an Angry Birds: Summer Madness animated series which is set to premiere in 2021 on the streaming platform. The series will feature a teenage version of Red, Bomb, and Chuck as they head to summer camp.Reported by Deadline, the beloved birds will be up to their regular antics and wild adventures, under the direction of their camp counselor, Mighty Eagle. Of course, the rather obnoxious Pigs won’t be far away and will be setting up camp across the river, because no summer camp experience would be complete without a rival camp causing chaos.While this is the first Angry Birds title to come to television, the franchise has already released two successful films, with the first title bringing in $107 million.

Angry Birds creator Rovio Entertainment has elected to continue its partnership with Cake Entertainment to bring the animated series to Netflix. “Angry Birds animated content plays a key role in our long-term franchise strategy,” said Rovio’s Ville Heijari. “After more than a decade in hit games, blockbuster movies, and licensed products, this is the Angry Birds’ first foray into a long-form series. We’re delighted to continue our partnership with Cake and can’t wait to unveil the world of Angry Birds: Summer Madness to viewers on Netflix.”

“Angry Birds are about to smash the small screen and we are thrilled to be making the journey with Netflix as our global partner,” said Cake Entertainment’s Ed Galton.
