Fans of the Netflix animated series will be happy to know that the late actor Anton Yelchin will still be part of Trollhunters season 2. Find out the full details here.
Den of Geek describes Trollhunters from Guillermo Del Toro as one of the unexpected treats of 2016. One key reason for this was the involvement of Anton Yelchin who played Jim.
However, fans of the animated series should not fear a Trollhunters season 2 without Anton. As it turns out, the actor will remain a big part of the show.
Good News for Trollhunters Season 2
No less than Guillermo Del Toro gave his assurance for the upcoming Trollhunters season 2. Yet his additional news about Anton Yelchin and his character is possibly a big comfort to fans.
“Well, we got very good news about how many people were watching the series, but we got confirmation that the next  episodes are a go. We’ve been working on a second season for a while now because we knew that if everything went right, we could proceed,” Del Toro told Entertainment Weekly.
As it turns out, the plan for Trollhunters dates back to four years ago. It involves 52 episodes broken into four story arcs. Hence, the production has compiled recordings from the Trollhunters season 2 cast including Anton Yelchin.
“We’re going to go ahead and now continue, rather than start, because we’ve been doing it for more than a year. The reality and the beauty of this is that we can continue not only the storyline and the characters, but we have a huge swath of work from Anton that allows us to continue Anton through more than half the season,” Del Toro added.
What to Expect in Trollhunters Season 2
To date, Trollhunters season 2 has not changed any of its initial plans despite the death of Anton. However, Del Toro revealed an eventual change in his character’s voice in the last episode which was purely coincidental.
Season 1 ended with a cliffhanger with Jim headed to the Darklands as the chosen Trollhunter. In his absence, it will become an opportunity for Toby and Claire to stand out as Trollhunters themselves. Hence, season 2 will explore Toby and Claire more and their heroic adventures in the human world.
Moreover, fans can look forward to a number of character recalls so watch out for the return of the Mexican dentist. In addition, audiences get to know the story behind Blinky and AAARRRGGHH!!!.
