Hank Zipzer – the world’s greatest underachiever – has accomplished enough to earn a second season on CBBC. After a successful run on the British children’s channel earlier this year, CBBC announced a second 13 x 30-minute season of Hank Zipzer to air starting in late 2015, produced by Kindle Entertainment with DHX Media and Walker Productions.

Based on the real-life experiences of Henry Winkler, who co-authored the book series Hank Zipzer: The World’s Greatest Underachiever, alongside Lin Oliver, the TV show Hank Zipzer follows the life of a resourceful 13-year-old boy with dyslexia. The comedy-drama series filmed in Yorkshire, England, also stars Winkler, best-remembered as The Fonz on 1970s sitcom Happy Days, who now plays the role of the only teacher who understands Hank.

Winkler has so far co-written 18 Hank Zipzer books and another four in the Here’s Hank series, which follows Zipzer in the second grade before he was diagnosed with dyslexia.
