Studio AKA’s animated series Hey Duggee will return to CBeebies for a second season following a commission from the UK children’s channel.
The order, which has been made by CBeebies for its UK and international channels, will see Duggee and The Squirrel Club return for 52 new episodes.
The first series of Hey Duggee bowed in December 2014 and has been sold into more than 80 territories worldwide, including to broadcasters France Télévisions, ABC Australia, SVT Sweden, and most recently, to Nickelodeon US.
The show’s first season has been viewed more than 22 million times on BBC iPlayer, and the brand has signed multiple license partnerships already with master toy partner Golden Bear.
Hey Duggee revolves around The Squirrel Club that’s run by a big friendly dog called Duggee, who teaches kids vital life skills about being responsible, working as a team and taking acceptable risks.
