In Endlings season two, Johnny (Edison Grant), Julia (Kamaia Fairburn), Tabby (Michela Luci) and Finn (Cale Thomas Ferrin) face the fact that while their past cannot be changed, their future is still within their grasp. They learn to face their fears, and together they fight to change the future. It’s a fight that if they win, will save their lives and the planet as well.
About Endlings Season One
Set 20 years in the future, Endlings is the empowering story of four kids in foster care who discover they’re not alone in the universe, even though sometimes it can feel like they are.
Halfway across the world, following the death of her mate, Tuko becomes the last elephant in existence – what biologists call an Endling. Her endling status summons to Earth a mysterious Alien who is on an intergalactic quest to save the last member of near-extinct species. After Tuko is collected, the Alien’s ship malfunctions and sends it on a crash course with the farm where Julia (Kamaia Fairburn), Johnny (Edison Grant), Tabby (Michela Luci) and Finn (Cale Thomas Ferrin) live with their foster dad, Mr. Leopold (Neil Crone). Before crashing, the Alien releases all of its cosmic collection into the fields and wilderness surrounding the property. This kicks off a high-action life-altering mission to retrieve these fantastical creatures before the local police, Tuko’s caretaker (Oyin Oladejo) or a secretive industrialist (Lisa Ryder) can. Along the way, four discarded kids discover that “endling” doesn’t have to mean the end. It can also mean a new beginning.
The first season of Endlings will launch with nine international broadcast partners including Hulu and Universal Kids in the US, CBC and SRC in Canada, CBBC in the UK, NDR in Germany, ABC in Australia, SVT in Sweden, NRK in Norway, and Gloob in Brazil. The first season of 12 X 22’ will be available for international broadcasters in 2020.
