- On August 5th 2019, there was an event on Hub (Now Discovery Family) called "The annual Hublection" Which worked similar to an election. On that day there were six candidates from either a new show or a show that has not been renewed for another season (One of them was Teenage Fairytale Dropouts) airing the following day to be voted on which would be coming back for another season or would be a new airing. On August 7th after the first episode of Season 2 aired, the website opened a poll for the six shows and would continue to stay that way until August 9th, with the highest voted show getting a chance to air it's line up of episodes in October. In the end Teenage Fairytale Dropouts won, and on October 26th, the show aired it's second episode.
- The schedule followed like this: From October 26 to November 16th 2019, the first half of episodes aired on television. The show went on a quick hiatus from November 16th to December 12th. Finally from December 12th to January 3rd 2020, the second half of episodes aired before Season 2 was fully completed.
- In episode 9 of Season 2, Teenage Fairytale Dropouts made history by introducing "Latrice Royale". In the series, she is a famous fairytale model and drag queen (Latrice is a drag queen in real life). When people found out the truth that she wasn't a real woman however they felt disgusted and heartbroken, but Jeremiah, Fury and Trafalgar didn't. At the end of the episode, a few people started to accept her more for who she is. The episode was praised by viewers for dealing with the topic of acceptance in the LGBT community and Drag Queens carefully. It was the first time a children's animated series featured a Drag Queen character and was also the second time an animated series featured one (The first being Super Drags)
- The series is currently being streamed in America (Discovery), Australia (ABC ME), Singapore (HBO Family Asia), India (Sun Network), Mexico (Amazon Prime) and Japan (Cartoon Network Japan). Out of all streams, only the Mexican streaming and Japanese streaming have their own dubs.
- In episode 7 of the season, Anima Estudios partnered with Toei Animation to create cover songs from one of their anime's as a promotion for the new TFD wallpaper line up. In the end Sailor Moon's songs were chosen to be used due to the fantasy and magic theme.
- Teenage Fairytale Dropouts returned to the line up on the Discovery channel since it's season 2 announcement.
