From Creator J.J. Johnson (Dino Dan), the new season of Annedroids, which recently garnered 10 Daytime Emmy nominations, continues the journey of Anne and her friends as they inspire children—through trial and error—to identify problems, ask questions, and experiment
SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--(NASDAQ: AMZN)—Amazon today announced that the third season of its Emmy-nominated original kids series Annedroids is scheduled to debut on June 24, 2016 on Prime Video in the US. Created by Emmy Award-winning producer/director J.J. Johnson (Dino Dan) and Sinking Ship Entertainment (Odd Squad), 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.
“We’re humbled by the critical acclaim the show has received and excited to present our fans with an epic third season of more action, more drama and more robotic mayhem.”
The third season of Annedroids brings back Anne (Addison Holley, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood), and her friends Nick (Jadiel Dowlin) and Shania (Adrianna Di Liello, Stage Fright). The trio embarks on more adventures and experiments with their android friend, Pal (voiced by Millie Davis, Orphan Black) who’s more interested than ever to become a real kid. This season finds Nick banned from the junkyard by his mom, Anne upgrading junkyard security, and Shania trying her best to help things return to normal. New friends and familiar faces join them this season, including Zack (Jonny Gray, Max and Shred), who helps Anne build a new dogdroid named Fangs, and Charlie (Devyn Nekoda, Backstage) who mistakes Pal for a real kid and takes Pal to the mall.
“We’re excited to debut a third season of Annedroids and are thrilled about the series’ recent recognition with the Television Academy,” said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. “Our customers have embraced Anne and her tenacity to innovate through trial and error, a powerful message to kids.”
“Annedroids continues to defy stereotypes and expectations,” said J.J. Johnson, series Creator and Executive Producer. “We’re humbled by the critical acclaim the show has received and excited to present our fans with an epic third season of more action, more drama and more robotic mayhem.”
Annedroids recently received 10 Daytime Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Children’s Series, Outstanding Performer in a Children’s or Pre-School Children’s Series and Outstanding Directing in a Children’s or Pre-School Children’s Series. The series also garnered 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.
