NETFLIX has handed out a series order for 40, 11-minute episodes of Angry Birds: Summer Madness.

The animated comedy is inspired by the popular mobile game and will re-imagine the popular franchise as tween birds at summer camp under the questionable guidance of their eagle counsellor.

The series will debut in 2021.

Curtis Lelash, director of original animated series at Netflix, commented: “Angry Birds have been a true phenomenon for kids around the world and we’re excited to bring them home to the nest at Netflix where they will be angrier and bird-ier than ever.”

Rovio CEO Ville Heijari added: “Angry Birds animated content plays a key role in our long-term franchise strategy. After more than a decade in hit games, blockbuster movies and licensed products, this is the Angry Birds’ first foray into a long-form series. We’re delighted to continue our partnership with CAKE and can’t wait to unveil the world of Angry Birds: Summer Madness to viewers on Netflix.”

In addition to a beloved game, the Angry Birds franchise has become a global phenomenon with two feature films and other consumer products.
