If you’re looking for something to keep the kids occupied on those long summer days or you’re just a big kid looking to relive your youth, there’s nothing more kid-friendly coming to Netflix this July than The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants. The character has been beloved for over two decades, whether in book or movie format, and continues to enchant new generations with his wild adventures. The latest season of the TV series is one of the month’s best new releases.

Based on the series of novels by Dav Pilkey and the 2017 film Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, the Netflix animated series adaptation centers on the same group of characters millions have grown up knowing and loving. In The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants, best friends George Beard and Harold Hutchins extend their shared interests in pranking, comic books, and annoying Principal Krupp by calling on their crazy creation Captain Underpants to go on adventures they could never have imagined when reading their comic books.

The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants premiered on Netflix in July 2018 and followed up its first season with a second season of 13 more episodes in February 2019. Clearly, fans of the franchise are hungry for more Captain Underpants, as are the new viewers who have started watching the streaming series. T

here’s no word on whether Captain Underpants will soar back into theaters with a sequel to the film debut, but until then, the superhero’s adventures are taking flight on Netflix. Check out the 13-episode third when it saves the day on July 19.
