Interview: Annedroids Season 2 – A Chat With Show Creator JJ Johnson
If you want to give your kids their screen time while also warding off the effects of summer brain drain, you’ll want to get them tuned in to the Amazon Kids original series, Annedroids.
Annedroids — Amazon’s Emmy®-nominated live-action adventure series aimed at children aged six through eleven — is back for a second season and will feature the voice of Oscar® winner Geena Davis.
Annedroids focuses on a young female genius, her human friends, android assistants and the amazing scientific discoveries they make while undertaking the biggest experiment of them all: growing up. The series spotlights how science, technology, engineering, and math can inspire children to do great things.
Annedroids season 2 is available for Amazon Prime members starting July 2. I recently spoke with the show’s creator, Emmy-nominated producer JJ Johnson. During our chat, he gave a behind-the-scenes look into the show, including details on the cast, the challenges he faced in getting the show up and running, and how the uniqueness of Annedroids is the key element to its success. JJ also revealed a glimpse of what is in store for the new season.
