"Dragons: Defenders of Berk Hiccup" is the sophomore season of a weekly animated series on Cartoon Network that was originally named "DreamWorks Dragons: Riders of Berk," which picked up where the critically-acclaimed feature film, "How to Train Your Dragon," left off, following the continuing adventures of Hiccup and his dragon Toothless on the Viking island of Berk, along with the band of dragon trainers, all of whom now have dragons of their own!

Through their training, the kids are finding out the cool things dragons can do. Not only will they learn more about the unique powers of their dragons, they'll also discover entirely new species and battle against new villains as they explore worlds they never dreamed existed.

The all-star line-up of voice talent includes Jay Baruchel (Hiccup), America Ferrera (Astrid), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Fishlegs) and T.J. Miller (Tuffnut), all of whom are original cast members from the feature film, which was among the top ten movies at the global box office in 2010. In addition, Tim Conway (Mulch), Chris Edgerly (Gobber), Mark Hamill (Alvin the Treacherous), Julie Marcus (Ruffnut), Nolan North (Stoick), Zack Pearlman (Snotlout), Stephen Root (Mildew) and Tom Wilson (Bucket) voice main characters throughout the series.

Season 2

In its second season of epic adventures and high-flying hijinks, "DreamWorks Dragons: Defenders of Berk," Hiccup and his dragon Toothless lead the way as the gang graduates from experienced riders to confident defenders. The group will face a surprising enemy, rare and wild dragons and exciting adventures.

As an unforeseen villain emerges, the trainers must develop their skills and defend the Viking Island of Berk. The kids take it upon themselves to protect Berk and form a secret "Dragons Flight Club" to battle old foes with new dragon knowledge and flying skills. Hiccup tries his hand as an inventor, while Fishlegs becomes the most popular man in town. The group also learns the important lesson of not taking your dragon for granted.

Andree Vermeulen takes over for the voice of Ruffnut.

"DreamWorks Dragons: Riders of Berk" is produced by DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. Art Brown and Douglas Sloan are show runners. The series is co-executive produced by Sandra Rabins. Anthony Bell serves as supervising director.
