The original series keep on rolling in for Netflix, which following a round of preschool commissions earlier this summer, is making room for seven new shows aimed at kids, tweens and teens.
Starting this December, the SVOD giant will release new series LEGO Bionicle: The Journey to One and LEGO Friends: The Power of Friendship, based on the popular toy lines from the Danish toyco, as well as DreamWorks Animation’s new original family sitcom Dawn of the Croods, which will be available exclusively on Netflix in all current territories except Germany and Japan.
For tweens and teens are live-actioner Lost & Found Music Studios from Canada’s Temple Street Productions, American Greetings Entertainment and Stoopid Buddy Stoodios’ stop-motion action-comedy Buddy Thunderstruck, and the anime-inspired Glitter Force – a 20-episode series from Saban Brands that targets an ever-growing tween girls market. The latter will premiere worldwide, excluding Asia, in December.
The new series will join the recently announced Las Leyendas, Netflix’s first original animated series produced in Latin America.
With nearly half of its 65 million global subscribers regularly watching kids content, the seven new shows bring the total number of Netflix original kid-friendly series to 35. In June, Netflix ordered four new toons to join its growing lineup of global Netflix Originals, including Saban Brands and Cirque du Soleil Média’s Luna Petunia
