‘Esme & Roy’Season 2: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about HBO Max's animated series
The all-new streaming service of HBO network is going to launch the second season of the children’s animations series that started on the network broadcast channel in 2018
‘Esme & Roy’ is an American/Canadian animated series for kids that was created for Canadian and American television in 2018. At that time, it aired on HBO in the United States and Treehouse TV in Canada. And now, as HBO is about to launch its all-new streaming service, HBO Max, the second season of the show will find its way to the online channel.
Targeted for preschool children between the ages of four to six years, the animation series uses the classic “play and learn” technique.
The all-new 26 episodes along with a 22-minute special will drop on HBO Max on June 25, 2020.
The fun and adventurous series follows the story of a little girl named Esme, and her best monster friend, Roy. Esme is a “monster sitter”, quite like a baby sitter, in the town of Monsterdale, a place mostly inhabited by monsters, while humans continue to live side by side.
Esme is seven years old but she is inventive and very skilled at fixing problems. She relies on her MonsterCase, a suitcase full of fun and games that keeps the little monsters engaged. But the case also turns into a scooter whenever she and Roy need to head out for their “sitting” services. Roy, on the other hand, is a yellow monster, but a silly and a lovable creature who happens to know everything about monsters which helps Esme in her work.
Together, Esme and Roy solve problems of other young monsters, while playing with them, and going on a fun ride, one adventure at a time.
While, there is no continuation of the story, the all-new second season of ‘Esme & Roy’ will continue with the daily chores and jaunts of the little monster sitter and her monster friend. Across 26 new episodes, Esme and Roy will continue to teach their children audience about communication, friendship, teamwork, and more, through musical sequences and games.
