Total Drama Action is the second season of Total Drama.


Total Drama Action takes place on an abandoned film lot somewhere in Toronto, Ontario. It follows the same format as Total Drama Island, with fifteen contestants from last season participating in movie-themed challenges on separate teams. After being voted off, contestants must take the Walk of Shame and travel to the Total Drama Aftermath show via the Lame-o-sine. This process continues until one player wins $1,000,000.


Like the previous season, this season consists of twenty-six episodes plus a special.

There are many more rewards this season than in the previous season. Since this season has less contestants, many of the challenges end in non-eliminations.

Total Drama Action EXTRA

Total Drama Action EXTRA is Cartoon Network's Total Drama Action website featuring videos, information about the season, games, and announcements for Best. Game. Ever.

Best. Game. Ever.


Best. Game. Ever..

Best. Game. Ever. was a role-playing game in which players created their own avatar and received weekly missions from Chris. Players were tasked with forming alliances, fighting enemies, and obtaining money to purchase more accessories in-game.

The Big Picture

The Big Picture is another Cartoon Network game. The main goal is to take high-quality pictures of the contestants in a short amount of time as they run across the film lot.



There are no Region 1 or Region 2 DVD releases of Total Drama Action. An Australian company called Madman Entertainment released Total Drama Action: Collection 1 in a Region 4 DVD on November 2, 2011. Total Drama Action: Collection 2 was later released on July 4, 2012.


On Netflix, Total Drama Action contains HD, full screen and 16:9 aspect ratio.
