The spook-tastic stop animation TV series Scream Street is wending its way back onto CBBC this autumn, as season two of the popular children’s show prepares to land in time for Halloween. The deal was brokered by the series’ independent international rights holder, Coolabi Group.
Based on the hit book series of the same name written by Tommy Donbavand, the all new, 26 x 11’ series features a whole host of new characters and rib-tickling adventures.
The Scream Street gang includes Luke the teenage werewolf, Resus the Vampire, savvy 4,000 year-old Mummy, Cleo, Luella the trainee witch, surf-dude zombie Doug and Frankenstein-style creation Six. This season they go on their most outrageous adventures yet, featuring thrills, chills and a lot of laughs.
Six is a new character for series two, who is the same age as most of the gang, but born yesterday, and along with Luella and Cleo, forms part of Scream Street’s brand-new girl squad. She moves to Scream Street with her creator, Dr F, and eccentric scientist and the latest antagonist to the Scream Street crew.
The new episodes see the gang come up against a whole host of silly spooks as they battle to save Scream Street, usually from one of evil Otto’s dastardly tricks, or one of their own sticky situations.
Luke is voiced once more by Tyger Drew-Honey, with John Thomson, Debra Stephenson, Claire Skinner, Rasmus Hardiker, Tala Gouveia, and Jim Howick returning to voice the remaining residents of Scream Street.
Jeremy Banks, chief executive of Coolabi, said: “In a world where audiences of all ages are falling in love with strange and spooky stories, Scream Street is a fun-filled, weird and extremely wonderful show for younger audiences, brimming with tricks, treats and laugh-out-loud humour for all the family.”
The hit show, produced by Coolabi Group, is being brought back to life by showrunner Giles Pilbrow (Spitting Image and Horrible Histories) and is co-produced and animated by award-winning animation studio Factory (Clangers, Strange Hill High) in Altrincham.
Coolabi will be working with ZDF Enterprises to bring the hit animated comedy series to kids across the world.
