DreamWorks Animation is looking to hold dragon training sessions every week.

Deadline reports that the studio is not only working on a sequel to their animated hit, "How to Train Your Dragon," but also developing a spin-off television series. TV audiences will be taken on new adventures with young Hiccup and his dragon Toothless every week on Cartoon Network starting in 2012.

"How to Train Your Dragon," which chronicled the unlikely friendship between a young Viking and a fire-breathing dragon, was a hit of jaw-dropping proportions, earning more than $500 million in worldwide box office during its theatrical run earlier this year.

No word yet on whether Jay Baruchel will be reprising his role as the voice of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III in the "Dragon" television series. 

DreamWorks has been actively pursuing adapting other animated films from their library into television series, with "The Penguins of Madagascar" already airing on Nickelodeon and a "Kung Fu Panda" series set to air on the channel in the near future. DreamWorks is also producing TV specials of "Shrek," "Madagascar" and "Kung Fu Panda" that will air on ABC and NBC.
