More kids programming is headed to Netflix, as the American SVOD has picked up four new children’s series, including FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment’s animated series Danger Mouse, which be available on the service in spring 2016.
Netflix is premiering the rebooted Danger Mouse in the US, and plans to launch it at a later date in Canada, Latin America, Nordics, Benelux and Japan. The show is co-produced by FremantleMedia and CBBC, with animation by Boulder Media.
Netflix has also picked up the new version of Inspector Gadget from DHX Media. The SVOD has exclusive rights to the series in the US and the 26-episode series will debut on Netflix US in March, later rolling out to Netflix in Latin America, the UK, Ireland, Benelux, France and the Nordics.
Playmobil-inspired CGI series Super 4, co-produced by Morgen Studios and Method Animation, is also heading to Netflix US this spring. Joining the new toon will be Some Assembly Required, a live-action series created by Dan Signer and Howard Nemetz (The Suite Life of Zack & Cody) and produced by Thunderbird Films. Netflix will air the show in all territories this year, except in Canada, where it will premiere in 2016.
The pickups come on the heels of Netflix’s previously announced deal to air new co-pro Bottersnikes and Gumbles from CAKE Entertainment, Cheeky Little Media and Mighty Nice.
