Total Drama Action is the second season of Total Drama.


This season's challenges are based on movie genres, and the site where each challenge takes place is an abandoned film lot in Toronto. The grand prize for this season is $1,000,000. Fifteen castmates compete for forty-two days for one grand prize. When eliminated, contestants have to take the Walk of Shame and enter the Lame-o-sine, which takes them to the Total Drama Aftermath studio. Here, they are interviewed by two hosts about their experiences on the show and how they feel about their current position.


After the events of Total Drama, Drama, Drama, Drama Island, all of season one's contestants attempted and failed to win the million dollars in a final challenge at Camp Wawanakwa. Chris recruits the closest lucky fourteen (later fifteen) players that tied in the challenge to continue on to the second season, which takes place on an abandoned film lot in Toronto. For forty-two days, the cast is forced to compete in movie genre themed challenges for the one million dollar grand prize, faced with new challenges, surprises, and drama. Once split into two new teams, the Killer Grips and the Screaming Gaffers, the contestants take part in various movie-genre-based challenges, where the winning teams gain immunity or rewards for their successes. The losing teams are forced to attend an award ceremony, where they vote on who will receive the Gilded Chris Award or immunity, and who will be forced to take the Walk of Shame to the Lame-o-sine, and be eliminated from the competition. The lucky cast member who outlasts their other castmates wins the highly anticipated $1,000,000.


There is a total of twenty-six episodes of Total Drama Action, and a special that led up to next season.


Fifteen teenage contestants, plus the host, Chris, and co-host and cook, Chef Hatchet, respectively.

There are many more challenge prizes in Total Drama Action than in the previous season. Since this season has less contestants and the same number of episodes, a large number of challenges are reward and non-elimination ones.

Total Drama Action EXTRA

The official Cartoon Network Total Drama Action site. It features videos, information about the contestants, games (see above), headlines, and exclusives, all on Total Drama Action recent stuff. Also, the Best. Game. Ever. challenge announcement changes weekly according to the previous episode of the season.

Best. Game. Ever.


Best. Game. Ever..

An online game seen on Cartoon Network's official Total Drama Action site. It consists of RPG gameplay, where the player creates their own avatar and receives missions from Chris, which will change weekly, so it will relate to the last challenge done on the show. The player will be forming alliances, fighting beasts and obtaining money to buy more accessories for their avatar throughout the game.

The Big Picture

Another Cartoon Network game made on Total Drama Action. The main goal is to take high-quality pictures of the contestants, with as many castmates in them as possible while they run across film studios.



Since there are not any Region 1 and Region 2 DVD releases of this season, Australia released Total Drama Action: Collection 1, in a Region 4 DVD on November 2, 2011. Total Drama Action: Collection 2 was released on July 4, 2012.


Total Drama Action has been released onto Netflix. This season contains unedited dialog and full screen, 16:9 aspect ratio. It also includes all the episodes of the season, excluding Celebrity Manhunt's Total Drama Action Reunion Special.
