Legend Quest season 2 is due to release shortly on Netflix but has come after a long wait. The first-ever animated show from South America for children got a second season and we’ve been following the development. Here’s the latest on Legend Quest season 2
In case you missed it, the first season of Legend Quest dropped on Netflix back February 2017. The Mexican animation series was the first of its kind to drop on Netflix. The series is set in 19th Century America where a young boy, with his friends, defends the world against supernatural threats.
13 episodes released as part of season 1. In September 2017, a celebratory Birthday special was added to Netflix.
Is Legend Quest season 2 happening?
Absolutely. The renewal was announced by Netflix for a second season sneakily in October 2017. The writers and animators have been hard at work ever since at season 2. With that said, because of the radio silence, you’d be forgiven to think that the series has been canceled. That’s certainly not the case.
One of the best resources on information regarding the second season is coming from J. Alejandro Garcia who serves as the creative director on Legend Quest working for Gamanimation.
Here are a few of his updates on social media regarding Legend Quest season 2:
Below, you can see the script for episode 1 of season 2. This was posted in January 2018.
Matt Fowler, who’s working on another Netflix project announced back in September that he’s going to be voice acting a new titan called Michael Donovan.

The last and likely final update of the Legend Quest season 2 development came on May 6th, 2019 when the team were working on the final edge of “Legend Quest 2”.

Why the long wait?
With kids series, we’ve been spoilt when it comes to fast releases. Dreamworks TV studios have managed to put out season after season in quick succession but they’re a big studio. Smaller animated studios recruited by Netflix have smaller teams resulting in longer wait times between seasons.
How many episodes will be in Legend Quest 2?
13 episodes have been confirmed for Legend Quest season 2.
When will season 2 be on Netflix?
Although no official date has been revealed just yet, we’re expecting it to drop in summer 2019.
Are fans looking forward to season 2 of Legend Quest?
You bet. We’ve found scores of people across social media either asking for updates regarding season 2 or expressing their angst regarding a new season.
@GAMAnimation I’m still pumped for S2 of Legend Quest. Whenever it gets here! 👍
