It comes as no surprise that Diplo juggles several projects at once; however, what may shock his fans is the fact that his Major Lazer animated series may be given a second wind…
Flashback to 2015 and you will find Major Lazer – i.e. Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire, taking the cartoon world by storm.
The overall concept had it all: vampires, weed, and one badass freedom fighting mascot that was ready to face any challenge the post-apocalyptic Jamaican setting presented him with.
In April 2015, the show first premiered on FXX. Unfortunately, although the series was well-received, it was short-lived with a mere 11 episodes released.
Recently, a curious fan tweeted the American DJ to inquire if the series would be considered for a second season. To everyone’s surprise, Diplo replied and teased, “Coming soon”.

The first season had an army of A-list contributors including Andy Samberg, Aziz Ansari, Ezra Koenig, John Boyega, and that’s just to name a few.
If the second season does end up making its triumphant return, we can only imagine who else will be inputting their ideas and making the 80’s-inspired adult cartoon come to life.
We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled via Major Lazer’s official social media channels. It’s always interesting to keep up with the musical trio’s juicy news…
