Second Season of Amazon Original Kids Series "Annedroids" is Now Available for Amazon Prime Members in the US and UK

From creator J.J. Johnson (Dino Dan), the new season of the Emmy-nominated live-action adventure features the voice of Geena Davis (Grey's Anatomy)

Children's series celebrates STEM curriculum through Anne and her friends and inspires children--through trial and error--to identify problems, ask questions, and experiment

SEATTLE -- Jul. 2, 2015 -- (NASDAQ: AMZN) -- Amazon today announced that the second season of its Emmy-nominated original kids series Annedroids is now available for Amazon Prime members in the US and UK. Created by Emmy Award-winning producer/director J.J. Johnson (Dino Dan) and Sinking Ship Entertainment (Odd Squad), the new season features the voice of Geena Davis (Grey's Anatomy) and is aimed at children aged six through 11. Annedroids is a live-action adventure series about Anne, a young female scientist, her human friends and the android assistants she's created, and the amazing scientific discoveries they make while undertaking the biggest experiment of them all: growing up. The series spotlights, through trial and error, how science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) can inspire children to do great things.

The second season of Annedroids finds Anne (Addison Holley, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood) and friends back in the junkyard for more experiments, taking their adventures to the next level. As Nick (Jadiel Dowlin) and Shania (Adrianna Di Liello, Stage Fright) return to school after spending their summer in the junkyard, Anne finds new ways to stay in touch using Pidgely, a pigeon with a broken wing she equips with a rocket suit. Pal (voiced by Millie Davis, Orphan Black) ventures outside the junkyard and expresses a desire to be a real kid. Also this season, a mysterious robotics scientist offers Anne the opportunity of a lifetime, forcing Anne to make some tough decisions about her friends, family and future. Along the way, the kids use DNA to track a lost dog, confront dinosaurs in nightmares, and send the androids to space.

"After seeing such a positive response from our customers, we're thrilled to debut another season of Annedroids," said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. "Anne continues to be a remarkable role model, for boys and girls alike. While her big ideas and desire to learn may lead her to make mistakes, through trial and error, she's constantly making unusual connections and innovating."

"There's a reason Common Sense Media ranked Anne from Annedroids as one of their top 10 best role models for kids: she loves knowledge, fosters curiosity in her friends and delights at solving problems," said J.J. Johnson, series Creator and Executive Producer. "In season two, Anne will have a lot of new problems to solve including intruders to the junkyard, broken pigeons, escaped dinosaurs and how to get an android into space. Or as Anne would say 'just another day in the junkyard.'"

Annedroids recently received a Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Directing in a Children's or Pre-School Children's Series as well as the Grand Prize for Best Production, All Categories at the Youth Media Alliance Awards of Excellence. Additionally, the series received the IPST Education Award at The Goethe Institut Science Film Festival 2014, a Parents' Choice Foundation's Silver Honor, and three Young Artist Awards. Common Sense Media also named Anne's character a top 10 best role model in children's TV.
