VOD News | On 04, Feb 2017
Amazon’s kids’ series Annedroids will return for a fourth season this March.
From Creator J.J. Johnson (Dino Dan), the new season of Annedroids, a series which garnered 10 Daytime Emmy Award nominations and a Gold Parents’ Choice Award in 2016, continues to inspire children to be curious and learn by showcasing STEM curriculum
Created by multi Emmy Award-winning J.J. Johnson (Dino Dan) and produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment (Odd Squad), the live-action series follows Anne, a young female scientist, and her human friends, along with the android assistants she’s created, as they make amazing scientific discoveries. Through trial and error, the series spotlights how science, technology, engineering, and math can inspire children.
The fourth season of Annedroids arrives after the show was nominated for 10 Emmys last year, tying Sesame Street for the most nominations that year.
Anne (Addison Holley, Wishenpoof) returns alongside and her friends, Nick (Jadiel Dowlin) and Shania (Adrianna Di Liello, Stage Fright), as they embark on more adventures and experiments with their android friends, including: Pal (voiced by Millie Davis, Odd Squad), who is fascinated by everything, Eyes, whose ability to see things from all angles can get him into trouble, and Hand, who’s strong but clumsy, and Pidgely, a real pigeon who became a cy-bird when Anne gave him some robotic upgrades. Oh, and Fangs, a robotic dog that can turn into a skunk, a porcupine and a snake. As you do.
The new season will focus on the theme of “modern day family”, says Amazon, where the word “family” isn’t necessarily defined by blood relation, but the people that are closest to you. In this season, Anne, Nick and Shania will band together and use scientific approaches to solve a myriad of problems, including getting lost in the wilderness, dealing with a friend moving out of town, building a robot for competition, and defending the junkyard from a hostile takeover.
“We’re excited to debut a fourth season of Annedroids and proud of the notoriety and accolades this series has garnered within the television industry,” says Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. “Our customers have embraced its inspiring characters and strong message of innovation and scientific discovery.”
“In Annedroids our characters never fail, they just discover new ways of doing things wrong until they get them right,” adds J.J. Johnson, series Creator and Executive Producer. “Expect grander discoveries, surprising character revelations and an explosive conclusion to Pal’s journey in this, our most ambitious season yet.”
Season 4 will premiere on Friday 3rd March on Amazon Prime Video in the UK and US. Season 1 to 3 are available to stream now.
