It’s been more than a year since the Amazon Original Emmy-award winning animated series Niko and the Sword of Light premiered and fans of the delightful all-ages cartoon have been waiting with anticipation until Season 2 premieres. Well, the wait is nearly over. Perhaps not arriving in time for Christmas but still around the holiday season, return to a world of adventure and derring-do with the titular child hero Niko along with Lyra, Mandok, Flicker as well as the nefarious Nar Est on December 28. Check out the trailer below for a sneak peek of what to expect.

Of note, Niko is one of the final animated projects for acclaimed voice director Andrea Romano. Given her amazing body of work and multiple Emmy awards, should be an indication of the level of talent involved in the animated series.

A new quest begins to defeat a looming threat and when darkness falls, heroes will rise. The Emmy award-winning series returns December 28, 2018 with Niko and the Sword of Light – Season 2 – The Amulet of Power – Part 1.

A plague of shadows has swept across the land, turning innocent creatures into terrible monsters. One champion remains to battle the darkness and return the world to the light: Niko. Armed with his magic sword and guided by a determined Princess, young Niko journeys to the Curse-ed Volcano to face the evil sorcerer Nar Est and free his people from their magic prison.
