A second season of One Animation’s long-form animated TV series Oddbods has gone into production, and the Singapore-based studio has inked new broadcasting agreements for season one.

The second 60 x seven-minute season was greenlit earlier this year and has already been snapped up by Turner for its Cartoon Network and Boomerang kids channels in Latin America and Boomerang across EMEA.

Additional broadcasters latching on to season one include Nickelodeon (Benelux), SVT (Sweden) and Carousel (Russia). The first season also airs on Disney (Asia), Canal+ (France and Africa), ITV (UK) and Boing (Italy).

The series featuring the playful pranks of seven colorful characters also began rolling out on Netflix last month in the US, Australia and New Zealand, with other regions coming later in the year. (Netflix picked up the series for North America, Latin America, EMEA, Australia and New Zealand.) The SVOD is expected to bow season two later this summer.

To date, the Oddbods original first season of one- and five-minute shorts have garnered nearly two billion views across social media. The property is also growing its CP program, with ITV signing on licensees, including UK master toy partner Golden Bear this past fall.
