The second installment of the Animated Web Series follows on the heels of the wildly successful Captain Canuck- Fool’s Gold, and like the first, features the voice talent of Kris Holden-Ried (Lost Girl, Underworld: Awakening, The Tudors) as Captain Canuck, Paul Amos as the villainous Mr. Gold (Assassin’s Creed, Lost Girl, Murdoch Mysteries), Laura Vandevoort (Bitten, Smallville, V- The Series) as BlueFox and Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black, Heartland) as Redcoat.
“We’re so happy to have the original cast back and look forward to working with the new” says Fadi Hakim, Chapterhouse Comics Publisher and Executive Producer of the series. “We have a lot of surprises in the coming months- new characters, voice talent and which Canadian musicians will be providing the soundtrack.”
Captain Canuck- The Prometheus Protocol, will be written by Kalman Andrasofszky, the creator behind Canuck’s comic book reboot, CC INC Creative Director Paul Gardner and Smiley Guy Studios’ Mike Valiquette, who will also be directing.
“We’re ecstatic to be back on this project and look forward to bringing the Captain back to screens everywhere.” Says Mike Valiquette, Director and Head of Development at Smiley Guy Studios. “Season one was a great introduction, and in season two we expand on that with more character development and a more focused tone. We get to see more of Canuck’s world. This time around, the stakes are higher, and the action even bigger.”
Celebrating his 40th anniversary, Captain Canuck was created by Richard Comely in 1975, and has been through various incarnations, including the May 2015 release of the much anticipated monthly comic book, written and illustrated by Kalman Andrasofszky ((NYX: No Way Home, X-Treme X-Men, X-23) and Leonard Kirk (Supergirl, JSA, Star Trek, Batman). It’s first issue, published by Chapterhouse Comics, sold over 75,000 copies throughout North America and the United Kingdom.
