Nickelodeon US has committed to a second season of preschool series Olivia from family entertainment producer and distributor Chorion.
Based on the book series by Ian Falconer, the new series of 26 x 11-minute episodes plus a 1 x 22-minute special will hit Nick US next month. To date, the new series has been pre-bought by TF1 France, ABC TV Australia and the Disney Channel in Japan and Latin America.
Animated by Dublin, Ireland-based Brown Bag Films, Olivia first launched on Nickelodeon US in January 2009. The new season follows a successful first season TV launch in more than 130 countries. The first wave of Olivia consumer products and toys, which are produced by global master toy licensee Spin Master, recently hit US shelves.
