Since the release of "The Angry Birds Movie 2" gaining box office success and grossing a little over $154 million worldwide with a budget of roughly $65 million, Netflix has decided that this kids franchise is worthy of being turned into a series.

Netflix is working with CAKE, a company focused on kids and family properties, who is partnering with Rovio Entertainment, the creators of the Angry Birds game.

The CEO of Rovio Ville Heijari talked about this partnership saying, "Angry Birds animated content plays a key role in our long-term franchise strategy. After more than a decade in hit games, blockbuster movies and licensed products, this is the Angry Birds' first foray into a longform series. We’re delighted to continue our partnership with CAKE and can't wait to unveil the world of Angry Birds: Summer Madness to viewers on Netflix".

The director of original animated series at Netflix Curtis Lelash also added, "Angry Birds have been a true phenomenon for kids around the world and we’re excited to bring them home to the nest at Netflix where they will be angrier and bird-ier than ever".

This animated series titled "Angry Birds: Summer Madness" is set to arrive to Netflix in 2021.
