Anton Yelchin will appear in upcoming episodes of “Trollhunters” posthumously.

The voices had been recorded over several years

At the time, it is known that Yelchin’s voice will be retained for the show’s upcoming second season. Guillermo del Toro, who created the animated series for Netflix, confirmed this in a released statement. Reportedly, Yelchin had already recorded lines for the series for around 52 episodes before his passing. According to reports, this is because del Toro planned for the series to take place within 13-episode story arcs, and had reportedly had Yelchin work on the series for several years before its eventual release.

Added to that, there will reportedly be an upcoming episode that will feature Yelchin performing voices for multiple characters. According to a released statement, the show-runners hope “to preserve as much of the performance of Anton as possible,” and a break within the arcs will allow them to do that.

Yelchin played the main character, Jim Lake Jr., who found a magical amulet that allows him to become a titular troll-hunter, and regularly save his hometown of Arcadia. Other actors who appeared in the show with Yelchin include Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman, Amy Landecker, and Steven Yeun.

Yelchin died in June of last year due to an automobile accident

Yelchin lost his life in June of 2016 due to a car accident in Los Angeles. A coroner’s report later indicated that his official cause of death was blunt traumatic asphyxia, after he had been lethally pinned down by his car after it had rolled down his home's driveway, with him being later found pressed between his mailbox and a local security fence.

He was 27 at the time of his passing, and his official date of death was June 19, 2016. There had been some controversy at the time of his death, as the car in question, a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, had been previously recalled.

In addition to his role in the Netflix animated series, he also appeared in the “Star Trek” film series, as well as films such as “Alpha Dog,” “Like Crazy,” and “Charlie Bartlett.”
