Tags from the story: TeamTO.

TeamTO has announced new deals for its martial arts action-comedy series JADE ARMOR including: a second Season, sale to China, and the start of its long-term licensing and video game plans.

For its second Season of JADE ARMOR (26 x 22), TeamTO has partnered with top kids broadcasters France Télévisions (France) and SUPER RTL (Germany). Production is well under way with delivery planned for the first quarter of 2025. Now totaling 52 half-hour episodes, JADE ARMOR Seasons 1 and 2 are managed by leading distribution outfit, APC Kids.

In China, Youku acquired Mandarin and English VOD rights (including IPTV/OTT) for Season 1 in China.

Corinne Kouper, Executive Producer, TeamTO commented, “With a season 2 we are very excited about diving deeper into the characters’ story arcs and personal journeys, which make them so endearing. Jade Armor is a series which, as well as being spectacular and funny, focuses on what it’s like to be a teenager today.

The production of a second season and success of the first has triggered concrete plans for licensing, with discussions on publishing, toys and videogames already under way.

 We have been in talks about a video game for consoles and PC with Plug In Digital, our partner on the many successful Angelo Rules’ games; development of the game should begin very soon,” commented Patricia de Wilde, Director of Marketing and New Business. “We have also initiated discussions with toy manufacturers and publishers together with licensing partners in Germany and France. We have a style guide with beautiful designs for Jade’s armor and the Beasticons, ideal for games, toys, costumes, plush, publishing, stationery, and promotions. The aim is to have the first product ranges in stores by the end of 2025.

 Aimed at 6–10-year-olds JADE ARMOR now comprises 52 22-minute episodes. The legendary Jade Armor is a mythical superhero, and now it is Lan Jun’s turn to be Jade Armor. Even she can’t quite believe her destiny is to be this epic hero! With the help of her friends, Theo and Alisha and the mystical Beasticons that accompany the Armor, Lan Jun is thrust into a series of action-packed adventures. Every day, she must contend with both an evil array of super villains and the very real trials of teenage life.

JADE ARMOR Season 1 (26 x 22) has been acquired by Warner Bros. Discovery (EMEA); France Télévisions (France); SUPER RTL (Germany); ABC (Australia), and SRC (Canada); Téléquébec (Canada); WildBrain (Canada); RTBF (Belgium); DR (Denmark); and PCWW (Hong Kong, Macau).
