Britain’s Channel 5 is commissioning a fourth season of the animated series Little Princess, produced by UK-based Illuminated Film Company. New episodes are set to debut in fall 2018.
The agreement comes as Little Princess celebrates its 10th anniversary. The show—based on the picture book by Tony Ross—first aired on Channel 5′s Milkshake block in October 2006. In the decade since the show first premiered, 100 episodes and two specials have aired.
Additionally, distributor Zodiak Kids has sold the first two seasons of Little Princess to OTT platform Amazon Video. The sale was part of a package deal for a number of Zodiak Kids’ other titles.
Little Princess has been sold to more than 150 territories around the world to broadcasters like Ciwen (China), ABC (Australia) and ZDF (Germany). Its branded YouTube channel also has more than six million views.
In other Little Princess news, London-based Kaleidoscope Film Distribution will represent international sales and UK distribution for the feature film Little Princess and the Legend of Blue Foot. The film is currently in pre-production.
