So just when is the next season going to begin for the How To Train Your Dragon television series? Dragons: Defenders of Berk, as its now called, will begin Sept. 19 at 7:30 p.m. (ET, PT) on Cartoon Network.
Toys have been trickling into the toy stores and the excitement for what’s coming will definitely build to the release of the second movie, due in theatres June 13th, 2014. With that in mind, Alvin the Treacherous and Mildew will no doubt pair up to cause problems for everyone living on Berk. Quite a bit of fuss has been built upon to show how useless Mildew seems to be, but when he turned trecherous, the tale is as exciting as the books originally penned by Cressida Cowell.
Even the next book in the fictional universe, How to Betray a Dragon’s Hero, is expected to be released in the UK the very same month. The North American release is expected to follow a month later.
The world of dragons has grown larger, and the series is just beginning to show what other tribes are living in the rocky mire of the Northern European Coastline.
As for how important this series story arc is or how vast this world will expand upon are not hinted at on the official press release:
In the new season, DreamWorks Dragons: Defenders of Berk , Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) 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) becomes the most popular man in town. The group also learns the important lesson of not taking your dragon for granted.
