The hit pre-school animated superhero TV show PJ Masks will be returning with a second series scheduled for autumn 2018.
Produced by Entertainment One and Frog Box, the new 52 episode series promises to bring ‘fresh adventures and challenges’ for its cast of heroes Catboy, Owlette and Gekko.
The new series is scheduled to air on Entertainment One’s broadcast partner channels Disney Junior and France 5.
The first series of the hit show continues to roll out across Disney Junior channels around the globe.
Olivier Dumont, managing director of eOne Family, said: “Since PJ Masks launched on Disney Junior and France 5 we have been delighted by both the fans’ instant admiration for the series and also the broadcasters’ complete commitment to the show.
“Commencing production on a second series while PJ Masks is still launching around the world speaks to its potential to be the next big pre-school hit and we look forward to introducing new narratives and characters that will excite the show’s growing fanbase around the world.”
Héléne Etzi, senior vice president and general manager, Disney channels EMEA and France, added: “Disney Junior is home to loveable characters and stories full of adventure, fun and magic.
“We knew from the first moment we saw Romuald’s books about superheroes in pyjamas that this idea was a natural fit for us.
“We were delighted to be part of the creative development journey for this pre-school show with real heart and relatable themes and look forward to extending our partnership with eOne to bring back Catboy, Owlette and Gekko for more adventures in 2018.”
To engage the brand’s growing international fanbase, eOne has a comprehensive marketing strategy lined up that includes the launch of new music videos and digital content such as apps and an interactive PJ Masks website, featuring activities for kids and parents.
