Season 2

Kong: King of the Apes was renewed for a second season set to premiere in 2017. It will feature Lukas Remy, Danny Kwan, and Francisca in a prehistoric underground world, where they must face real dinosaurs and giant insects. "Created by Avi Arad and Story Edited by Alexandra Bland, KONG finds himself in a preserved prehistoric underworld. Dinosaurs roam the land, pterosaurs soar, and giant insects still exist – all underground. The team must stick together and rely on Kong’s super-size and super-strength, Danny’s animal whispering skills, and their collective smarts to keep themselves safe in this ancient land. And to Richard’s pride-swallowing chagrin, he must team up with his former foes, or get eaten up by a T-Rex or suffer monstrous mosquito bites! Kong and Lukas and the whole team try to find a way to the surface while trying to survive in the land of the dinosaurs­. The world still needs Kong to defeat the villainous Botila! How are Kong, Lukas and team going to get out of the underworld? What are they going to find when they surface in Botila’s changed world? Won’t Botila be surprised when she realizes Richard is not really gone?!"[2]

Trivia

  • Kong: King of the Apes shares some connections with the previous animated series featuring King Kong, Kong: The Animated Series, due to its production company, 41 Entertainment, splitting off from BKN International, who produced the previous series.
    • Allen Bohbot's theme music for Kong: King of the Apes is a remix of his theme from Kong: The Animated Series, with the most notable difference being the removal of the chanting of "Kong."
    • Kong: King of the Apes also shares a writer (Sean Catherine Derek) and an executive producer (Allen Bohbot) with its predecessor.
  • The Pteranodon concept art created for this show is a direct reference to the final scene of the film The Lost World: Jurassic Park, which featured a Pteranodon striking an identical pose.

I find it interesting how all three animated series featuring Kong chose to portray him as a big friendly giant who befriends children and battles a mad scientist. The similarities between the last two series kind of make sense though, since King of the Apes is basically a spiritual successor to The Animated Series and shares the same writer.

While the comedy, or attempts at comedy rather, can be childish at best, and the sometimes blaring environmental message, the series is actually pretty dark in the drama.

That said, its written for children by people who have no clue what children are like, so... take that as you will.
