Stretch Armstrong Coming To Netflix


Stretch Armstrong is coming to television with a new animated series on Netflix in 2017, the streaming company announced today.

The Hasbro Studios series, titled Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters, will reboot the character with a new look. Here's the series description.

From Hasbro Studios comes an animated action/comedy series about overscheduled teenager Jake Armstrong and his two best friends. When the trio are accidentally exposed to an experimental chemical, they become STRETCH ARMSTRONG and the FLEX FIGHTERS, a team of unlikely superheroes who expand beyond the confines of their lives and embark on a series of adventures. The 26 episode series marks the first time Hasbro Studios is creating original programming for Netflix and will be available to members in late 2017.

Netflix also announced a new kids' musical series called Lalaloopsy, and a tween live action sci-fi drama called The Greenhouse

"With roughly half of our 75 million members regularly watching kids content, we're happy to expand our original slate with these three great series," said Andy Yeatman, Director of Global Kids Content for Netflix, in a press release. "We know kids love Netflix and that's in part because they never really outgrow us. We program and recommend new TV shows and movies from preschool through their teen years and into adulthood."
