Will there be a Season 2?

It’s possible but they’ll be creating their own Stories and Adventures for “Hilda” if they decide to go for Season two as most of the episodes listed in season one are adventures straight from the comic series. It would be great for Author Luke Pearson if they brought him on board to be a writer for the show but for now, watch this space and we’ll definitely be updating fans of the show if there will be a season 2!
