Ben 10 is an American animated superhero action-comedy television series and a reboot of the Cartoon Network series of the same name.[1] The series had its world premiere in Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific on October 1, 2016, and premiered in the United States on April 10, 2017.[2]

On May 22, 2017, the series was renewed for a second season[3][4] which premiered in February 2018.

On March 8, 2018, the series was renewed for a third season.[5]

On January 10, 2019, the series was renewed for a fourth season, slated to debut sometime in 2020.[6]

Plot[edit]

Building on the highly successful franchise about kid hero Ben Tennyson, Ben 10 introduces a re-imagined Ben, his cousin Gwen, and Grandpa Max, as they travel the country during summer vacation. When Ben finds the Omnitrix, a mysterious watch that transforms him into 10 different friendly aliens, a world of extraterrestrial superpowers opens up to him. The series is produced by Cartoon Network Studios and created and executive produced by Man of Action Entertainment (Big Hero 6, Generator Rex and the original four Ben 10 shows in their shared continuity), with John Fang (Mixels, Generator Rex) on board as supervising producer.

Season 1 (2016–2017)[edit]

Ten-year-old Ben Tennyson has spent his summer vacation traveling across the country with his cousin Gwen and Grandpa Max, in an RV nicknamed the Rustbucket. However, after coming across a strange high-tech watch known as the Omnitrix, which enables him to transform into 10 alien heroes, he finds himself in the position of a superhero. At each place his family stops, Ben goes from trying to find a source of entertainment to doing battle against supervillains such as the mad scientist Dr. Animo, the dark sorcerer Hex, the psychotic clown Zombozo, the technology-loathing Steam-Smythe, and the emotionless Weatherheads, amongst other threats both big and small. Despite having lots to learn, he hones his hero skills with Gwen and Max's help.

While battling one of Animo's mutant creations during a trip to Portland, Ben unlocks an 11th Alien he names Gax, a Chimeran with laser vision and great strength. However, unlocking this form seems to have an odd effect on the Omnitrix, leaving him unable to control his transformations. To determine the source of this issue, Max calls in his old friend Phil. Ben finds himself under attack from three alien bounty hunters named Tetrax, Kraab, and Sixsix. While, he's able to fend them off, he meets a mysterious aged Chimeran calling himself "Vil", who trains Ben to use Gax's powers. However, it turns out "Vil" and Gax are the two halves of alien conqueror Vilgax, who tricks Ben into freeing Gax from the Omnitrix. The bounty hunter trio were hired to prevent Vilgax from reforming and thus team up with Ben to prevent the conqueror from destroying the watch. Vilgax wins this battle, dispatching the hunters and leaving Ben rapidly changing, and according to Phil, unable to return to human form.

Vilgax intends to use lava from Mount Megaladon to recharge his ship and restart his conquering spree. Ben, regardless of his current state, engages Vilgax in battle. The tentacle-faced villain becomes interested in possessing the Omnitrix rather than destroying it, after seeing what it can do to a weak human boy like Ben. While at first hampered by his inability to predict which form he'll become next, Ben is able to turn the tides and defeat Vilgax by Upgrading the Omnitrix, supposedly sacrificing the Galvanic Mechamorph.

Season 2 (2017–2018)[edit]

The Tennysons continue to visit some of America's greatest tourist spots, as Ben continues to take his hero career to new heights. As his enemies grow stronger, Ben is aided by the appearance of new "Omni-Enhanced" versions of his alien forms, who possess a strange blue energy that packs a major punch in battle. He also has unlocked a new alien hero whom he dubs "Shock Rock", whose form is made up of the same blue energy.

Meanwhile, Vilgax, still seeking a method to escape Earth, forms alliances with some of Ben's enemies to harness the Omnitrix's power. Team Tennyson make it their mission to defeat Vilgax and stop his devious machinations from seeing light.

However, following a battle with Vilgax's war-bot, Ben learns that his new forms are a sign of a bigger threat. Shock Rock is a Fulmini, whose DNA pod replaced Upgrade following his sacrifice. The Fulmini Empire and their leader, the High Override, have been manipulating Ben to invade Earth and use the Omnitrix as a gateway. Ben and Vilgax team up, entering the Omnitrix and allying with a heroic fusion between his DNA and Upgrade's damaged DNA calling itself Glitch. Though the High Override banishes Vilgax to the Null Void, Team Tennyson are able to free Ben from his control and purge the Fulmini from the watch, causing it to reboot. Glitch survives the reboot by escaping the Omnitrix, joining the family.

Season 3 (2019)[edit]

After a serious battle with the High Override, Glitch merges with the Rustbuggy and becomes part of the Tennyson family. Ben gets frustrated when the Omnitrix reboots for a week, but it activates just as the Tennyson family is about to do some world traveling. Phil has created a helicopter called the "Omni-Copter" for the Tennyson Trio so they can travel around the world. The reboot reveals three new aliens, Rath, Slapback, and Humungosaur, who replace Grey Matter, Overflow, and Wildvine. With Vilgax in the Null Void, Ben has a new enemy to fight: Kevin Levin, who has an Omnitrix of his own, called the "AntiTrix", which gives him access to altered versions of Ben's aliens. A mysterious villain called the Forever Knight gathers up Ben's villains for a common cause. As revealed in the two-part finale Roundabout, his goal is to go back in time and prevent alien signals from contacting Earth.

Throughout the season, The Forever Knight tests Team Tennyson's enemies to determine those he needs for this goal: the final roster consist of Kevin, Charmcaster, Vin Ethanol, Billy Billions, Simon Sez, and a delusional Ben. While searching for Ben, Phil gifts Gwen with a robot cat suit. After convincing Kevin that there is good in him, they team up to help Ben prevent the Forever Knight from altering history. Luckily, Kevin goes after the Knight, trapping them both time and space.

Ben and Gwen make it back to the present and head back to America aboard the Omni-Copter alongside Grandpa Max, Phil, Vin, and Simon, the latter two had been convinced to join Team Tennyson. Also, Billy and Charmcaster get taken into custody.

Season 4 (2020)[edit]

Ben discovers a new function in the Omnitrix called "Omni-Kix". Plus, he gains a new alien, Jetray, who replaces Stinkfly.
