Culver City, CA, August 28, 2018 – Sony Crackle, the free streaming network, today announced that “SuperMansion,” the Emmy-nominated, stop-motion adult animated comedy series, will debut new episodes of season three on Thursday, October 4, with an early exclusive starting Monday, September 24 on PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®4 through the Sony Crackle app. Oscar® and Emmy®-nominated actress Minnie Driver will join the cast in a recurring role as Debbie Devizo, Dr. Devizo’s (Chris Pine) ex-wife and former League of Freedom team member. Sony Crackle also released the official trailer and key art, which provides a first look at Minnie Driver’s character in action.
After defeating Zenith’s (Yvette Nicole Brown) evil Uncle Ridan (Taran Killam), the League finds themselves trapped in a dystopian future, but when they escape back to our time, they discover they’ve been gone six months…and Dr. Devizo (Chris Pine) and his Injustice Club has replaced them as the League of Freedom! Rex (Bryan Cranston) and the team must learn what it means to be heroes without the fame and glory afforded them by their stature in the mansion. But it’s not all champagne and roses for Dr. Devizo (Chris Pine) – his ex-wife, Debbie Devizo (Minnie Driver), returns from the island he stranded her on decades ago. The island has turned her into an unstoppable killing machine…and Dr. Devizo is in her crosshairs! Rex and his team must decide if Dr. Devizo is worth saving…and then figure out how!
Following the success of “SuperMansion: Summer Vacation Special,” the network also announced the all-new original Thanksgiving holiday special, “A Prayer for Mr. T: The SuperMansion Thanksgiving Special,” set to debut Thursday, November 15. In the upcoming holiday special, the annual Thanksgiving turkey competition between Titanium Rex (Bryan Cranston) and Dr. Devizo (Chris Pine) goes awry when Rex’s turkey transforms into a nightmarish bird monster whose eggs hatch additional freakish bird creatures at an alarming rate. Lex (Jillian Bell) aims to prove herself worthy of a seat at the grown-ups’ table while Black Saturn (Tucker Gilmore) brings The Groaner (Zeb Wells) to his family’s mansion for a traditional Wheelihan Thanksgiving dinner, complete with snobby gherkins and snobbier guests.
Voice-acting stars Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), Keegan-Michael Key (“Key & Peele”), Chris Pine (“Star Trek”), Jillian Bell (“22 Jump Street”), Heidi Gardner (“Saturday Night Live”), Tucker Gilmore (“Frozen”) and Zeb Wells (also writer) will all return in the all-new episodes and upcoming special.
