The Teletubbies universe has been in global orbit for more than 10 years without any new episodes, and that’s all about to change thanks to Canada’s DHX Media and UK-based Darral Macqueen, which are producing 60 new episodes of the series for CBeebies in the UK.

The new episodes will feature the classic characters but with CGI enhancements and a more contemporary look.

DHX has owned the Teletubbies brand since last September, following the purchase of Ragdoll Worldwide for US$27.7 million. The acquisition served to grow DHX’s content library by more than 1,350 episodes across 12 properties.

The Teletubbies series first launched in 1997 and has since reached more than a billion kids worldwide. Original episodes of the show have aired in more than 120 countries.
