Netflix/Dreamworks Preview "Adventures Of Puss In Boots" Season 2

The boots are
back! The world’s greatest feline swordfighter swings back in action in
his all-new season two of The Adventures of Puss In Boots.

The Dreamworks series has 11 new episodes, starting today, exclusively available on Netflix, and it’s principal creatives – show runner Doug Langdale and director Lane Lueras – did a quick-chat with us and gave us the scoop:

Jerry Beck: For the
record, how long was this current season in production.

Doug Langdale: The current
season, from first first story meetings to finished episodes, took two years.

Lane Laeras: There are 78
episodes of the series in production – this second season encompasses episodes

JB: So tell us what we can
look forward to in these.

DL: Well for one, Puss
discovers a kingdom of Mole People…

LL: …and then discovers a
kingdom underneath the mole people.

DL: We introduce a Mermaid
character voiced by Maria Bamford – super hilarious…

LL: …and super creepy. We
are introducing several new characters to the continuity and starting to build
towards a central climax.

DL: We also have some
dramatic stand offs, and Puss faces some real challenges – viewers will note the
show become more serialized as it goes on. So watch them all – in order!

LL: We should mention that
we introduce several new songs this season – attention Grammy voters!  

JB: The show is clever and
funny, contains special sequences I especially love done in 2-D animation…

DL: I’m happy to say the
2D inserts will continue. Everyone loves them.

With an amazing voice cast
including Danny Trejo, John Leguizamo, Maria Bamford, Patton
Oswalt, Jack McBrayer – and the multi-talented Eric Bauza as
“Puss in Boots” himself – I know what I’m binge-watching this

So set yourself
up with warm glass of milk and a big bowl of snacks and watch as Puss
sets off to slay a dragon, battles a mole king, and races against the clock to
restore the spell protecting the town of San Lorenzo.

Here are some exclusive
pix and clips.
