Viacom-owned Channel 5 UK has commissioned a second season of animated series Wissper for its Milkshake! preschool block.
Germany’s m4e and London-based animation studio Cuckoo (Waybuloo), together with Telegael (Ireland), Discreet Art Productions (India) and BASTEI Media(Germany), will produce 52 x seven-minute episodes for a late 2018/early 2019 debut. The show’s first season debuted in the UK in October 2015.
The preschool series follows a young girl named Wissper, who has the ability to communicate with animals. It has inspired a toy line from Simba Smoby that will launch in the UK this spring, and Viacom Consumer Products will announce more licensing partners for the property in the coming months.
