Last week, the creators of the animated children’s series Owl House received some good news from the Disney Channel. The network announced in a press release that the fantasy-comedy series was confirmed for a second season, even before the show’s upcoming premiere in January.
Owl House is the latest creation from artist and animator Dana Terrace, previously of the Disney Channel reboot of DuckTales. Terrace will serve as executive producer for the series and will oversee other key creatives, including art director Ricky Cometa of Steven Universe and supervising producers Stephen Sandoval of Gravity Falls.
The new series follows the story of Luz, “a self-assured teenage girl who stumbles upon a portal to a magical realm where she befriends a rebellious witch, Eda, and a tiny warrior, King.” Luz dreams of becoming a powerful witch, and is determined to make that dream come true despite not having any magical powers. Terrace recently posted some example art of the characters on her Twitter:
