Nickelodeon International (excluding Brazil), Family Channel (Canada) and Telequebec (French-speaking Canada) have all ordered a fifth season of animated series ALVINNN!!! and the Chipmunks
California’s Bagdasarian Productions and French studio Technicolor Animation produce the series, with Paris-based distributor PGS representing the distribution rights worldwide, excluding France.
Production on a new batch of 52 x 11-minute eps starts next month, with writing, producing and directing shared between the two co-producers. The classic comedy toon is about a single dad trying to raise six high-energy Chipmunks, and each episode features an original song.
Existing seasons of the series currently air on Nickelodeon channels worldwide, on SVOD service Hulu, and on international broadcasters such as M6 (France), Gloob (Brazil), Super RTL (Germany), RTBF/OufTIVI (Belgium), RTS (Switzerland) and K2 (Italy). Originally created in 1958, the property is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.
