Sharkdog Season 2: Renewed or Cancelled?

Created by Jacinth Tan, ‘Sharkdog’ is an animated series that follows a 10-year-old, Max, and his best friend, Sharkdog. Max’s buddy has characteristics of both shark and dog, which happens to be the root of all problems and chaos that befall their way. The thing is, Sharkdog does not have an idea about his own strength and general “sharkiness.” But like a dog, he is fiercely loyal to Max.

The show originally premiered in September 2021. Its unusual concept, based on warm and familiar themes of friendship, seems to be a winning formula that might take the comedy-driven series to new heights. Although targeted at a younger audience, it seems to have struck a chord with adult viewers as well. So, if you are curious to know what is on the horizon for this series, here’s all that you need to know!

Sharkdog Season 2 Release Date

‘Sharkdog’ season 1 released in its entirety on September 3, 2021, on Netflix. The first season has 20 episodes, with each one having a runtime of around 7 minutes.

As far as the second season is concerned, here’s everything we know. As of now, Netflix has not yet greenlit another round of this highly enjoyable animated series. However, sources claim that production for season 2 is underway. ‘Sharkdog’ happens to be the first international global animated series for ViacomCBS International Studios. The show first came to light as a part of Nickelodeon’s Global Animated Shorts Program.

Nickelodeon and Netflix joined hands to produce original animated feature films and TV series based on existing characters from Nickelodeon, along with some new ones. ‘Sharkdog’ is a product of that  agreement, which also includes other TV shows and movies that have spun off from ‘The Loud House’ and ‘Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.’ Taking all these factors into consideration, it looks like the show is laying out a plan for the long run. So, if the show meets Netflix’s renewal criteria and is recommissioned soon, we expect ‘Sharkdog’ season 2 to release sometime in Q3 2022. 

Sharkdog Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?

At the end of season 1, Captain Quigley, Dennis, and Mr. Heubel come together to capture Sharkdog at the carnival. Max shows up to protect his best friend from trouble but ends up being stuck on a carousel. Fortunately, Sharkdog stops it on time, and the carnival authorities save him from being caught by the trio. Max and his shark/dog buddy leave with his parents. If there is a season 2, we might see them once again on their adventures bordering on fun and danger. As Sharkdog comes to terms with his strength and abilities, he might have to tackle many more challenges in the future!
