Hilda: A Netflix Original Series Wiki
This page is about the animated series. For other similar uses, see Hilda (disambiguation).

Hilda is a British-Canadian animated series based on the graphic novel series of the same name by Luke Pearson. The series debuted on 21 September 2018 on the streaming service Netflix.

Produced by Silvergate Media and Mercury Filmworks, and directed by Andy Coyle, the show follows the adventures of Hilda, an 11-year-old girl who, along with her deerfox Twig, travels to the city of Trolberg, where she conquers even the most dangerous of monsters.

Production and Release

Like the graphic novels it is based on, the series is set in a fantasy world that mostly resembles late 20th century Scandinavia. According to director Andy Coyle, the world of Hilda was deliberately designed not to resemble 1 specific real-life location, but rather a vague amalgamation of various countries, mainly Scandinavian, British and North-American, so it can feel simultaneously familiar and foreign. The time period was also deliberately kept vague, but was mostly modelled after the early 1990’s.[1]

The first two episodes were screened at the New York International Children's Film Festival on 25 February 2018. The first season was released on Netflix on 21 September.

Season 1 adapts the first four books of the graphic novel series, and also contains multiple new stories written specifically for the animated series.

A second season was released on 14 December 2020.[2]

Two episodes of season 2 were screened at the New York International Children's Film Festival on 22 February 2020.[3] An 80-minute movie special titled Hilda and the Mountain King was released on December 30th, 2021.

On 9 June 2021, Ako Mitchell, the voice of Wood Man, announced on Twitter in a deleted tweet that a third season is currently in development.[4]
