The BBC has picked up a fourth season of the underwater-themed preschool series Octonauts from London, UK-based Silvergate Media and Ireland’s Brown Bag Films for its CBeebies channel.

Set to air from 2015, the newest CGI series will consist of 24 x 11-minute episodes and 2 x 22-minute specials.

Since launching on CBeebies in 2010, Octonauts has gone on to air in more than 100 territories worldwide and the IP has successfully expanded into consumer products and more recently a live stage show with partner Fiery Light that is set to launch in the UK this fall.

Octonauts was also one of four CBeebies brands placed on the channel’s first ever app, CBeebies Playtime, which racked up over a million downloads in its first six weeks after debuting in August 2013.
