Parents, rejoice! Netflix is once again giving you an opportunity to kick back and relax while your kids stay glued to the TV.
After a long and stressful day, every busy mom just wants to sit down and put up her feet (maybe with a glass of wine or two), without having to entertain the kids for hours on end.
That’s why we’re so happy to hear that Netflix is debuting a Trolls series that picks up right where the 2016 hit film left off, as “Queen Poppy welcomes a new time of peace in Troll Village with parties, sports and holiday celebrations, Branch tries to be more fun-loving,” according to Netflix.
As Variety reports: “Picking up where the film left off, the Netflix original series is an all-new chapter in the the adventures of the Trolls Poppy, Branch and all of Troll Village. Executive produced by Matthew Beans, the series features Skylar Astin and Amanda Leighton as the voices of Branch and Poppy respectively with original songs written and produced by Alana Da Fonseca.”
While the show is sure to be a huge hit with kids, it won’t feature the beloved voices of Anna Kendrick, James Corden, and Justin Timberlake, like the original film did.

The best part: Trolls: The Beat Goes On comes out on January 19—this Friday.
This isn’t the first time Dreamworks has worked to bring our favorite Trolls back to life on TV.
Over the holiday season, Netflix launched its very own Trolls Holiday special, which NBC described in a press release as:
Now that the Bergens' one holiday is gone - and the Trolls don't have to worry about being eaten by their neighbors - Poppy, the eternally optimistic Troll queen, has made it her mission to bring a brand new day of celebration to Bergen Town.
When Poppy recruits reluctant Branch and the rest of the colorful Snack Pack to join her quest, she'll try to prove to her best Bergen friends, Bridget and King Gristle Jr., that life would be better if they'd just adopt a new holiday. But just because Poppy won't rest until the village embraces Ticklepalooza or Balloon Squeal Day doesn't mean the Bergens are ready to launch a celebration as loud, crazy and glittery as the little Troll suggesting it.
If you’re feeling a bit bummed that the original Trolls cast won’t return for the Netflix series, make sure to check out Trolls Holiday, where your kids can reunite with Anna Kendrick, James Corden, and Justin Timberlake.
And don’t forget: Trolls 2 comes out in 2020!
