The first season’s voice talent included Ming-Na Wen, screen legend James Hong, Jurassic World’s BD Wong and The Americans’ Matthew Rhys, and featured guests like Sandra Oh, Randall Park, George Takei, Bowen Yang and original Gremlins star Zach Galligan.

The second season will again feature Wen, Hong and Wong, as well as their returning voice co-stars Izaac Wang, AJ LoCascio and Gabrielle Nevaeh, plus “exciting guest stars to be announced.”

The logline teases season 2 follows Gizmo, Sam and Elle “as they travel from their home in Shanghai to San Francisco, bringing even more magic, mystery and Mogwai mayhem.”

Max continues, “Hot on the trail of a new brood of evil Mogwai, our heroes journey deep into the American West, coming up against new supernatural creatures and picking up a few mysterious characters along the way.”
