"DreamWorks Dragons" Second Season Flies High This Fall on Cartoon Network

Next Chapter in the Animated Adventure-Comedy Series Premieres Sept 19 at 7:30 p.m. (ET, PT)

Based upon the Academy Award(R)-nominated film, How To Train Your Dragon, DreamWorks Dragons is back for its second season of epic adventures and high-flying hijinks on Thursday, Sept. 19 at 7:30 p.m. (ET, PT) on Cartoon Network. In the new season, DreamWorks Dragons: Defenders of Berk Hiccup (Jay Baruchel, This Is The End) and his dragon Toothless lead the way as the gang graduates from experienced riders to confident defenders. The group will face a surprising enemy, rare and wild dragons and exciting adventures.

As an unforeseen villain emerges, the trainers must develop their skills and defend the Viking Island of Berk. The kids take it upon themselves to protect Berk and form a secret "Dragons Flight Club" to battle old foes with new dragon knowledge and flying skills. Hiccup tries his hand as an inventor, while Fishlegs (Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Superbad) becomes the most popular man in town. The group also learns the important lesson of not taking your dragon for granted.

The first season of DreamWorks Dragons: Riders of Berk, premiered on Cartoon Network last September and quickly became a ratings success. On average, season one's premieres ranked #1 in their timeslot among key boys 2-14 versus all other TV networks, according to Nielsen Media Research.
