TrollsTopia, Season Two

If you do join Peacock for the wrestling, be prepared for the trolls.

A second six-episode season of TrollsTopia, the DreamWorks animated musical production for kids, also debuts tomorrow.

Learning that musical trolls exist throughout the forest, Poppy (voiced by Amanda Leighton) invites every troll tribe to live in ‘harmony.’

In season two, the trolls celebrate “Pal-entine’s Day” and connect thanks to the new Metroll train station. When Chaz, a smooth jazz troll arrives, Poppy does everything she can to make his tribe feel included.

You can also catch TrollsTopia with a Hulu subscription.

Peacock also offers a free, ad-supported version with a smaller library of titles.
