Guillermo del Toro’s Tales of Arcadia scored a huge Netflix hit with the Emmy-winning Trollhunters, the first installment in a planned three-season trilogy. A stellar voice cast and the world-building power of DreamWorks Animation combined to attract a following, and now the wait’s almost over for 3Below, the second piece of the Arcadia puzzle.
SYFY WIRE has an exclusive preview from the upcoming season as we drop in on Princess Aja (Tatiana Maslany), Prince Krel (Diego Luna), and the gang while they tackle a teenage rite of passage: driver’s ed. Even as sinister spies take a bigger interest in the alien royals’ efforts to fit in, there’re more pressing concerns on the ground — like dealing with an over-caffeinated driver’s ed drill sergeant who’s not about to let them peek under the hood to scavenge spare parts for their stranded spacecraft.
While 3Below returns Jim Lake Jr. as the Trollhunter (Emile Hirsch) from Season 1, the focus this time around is squarely on Aja and Krel. With their home planet under threat from an evil new ruler, their chief concern is getting a jump-start off of Earth and back home in time to save the day — but it doesn’t take long before they grow just as attached to the friends they’ve made in Arcadia.
In addition to Maslany, Luna, and Hirsch, 3Below features the voice talents of Nick Offerman (Commander Vex), Glenn Close (Mothership), Steven Yeun (Steve Palchuk), Cole Sand (Pepperjack), Kelsey Grammer (Blinky Galadrigal), and more. Get ready for life to get even weirder when Netflix returns to Arcadia with the Dec. 21 season premiere.
