As Cloudco Entertainment wraps production on the third season of Holly Hobbie for Hulu, it’s changing commissioning broadcasters for future episodes. New partner BYUtv has renewed the tween live-action series for seasons four and five.

Holly Hobbie launched in 2018 as a Hulu original, and season three will premiere on the streamer at the end of November. There were no details at press time about when seasons four and five would be available.

The series isn’t leaving the House of Mouse entirely, though—Disney Channel US has acquired the first three seasons (30 x half hours).

Other broadcasters that have just picked up the show include ABC Australia (seasons one to three), RTE in Ireland (one to three), Kidzone in the Baltics (one and two), YLE in Finland (one), HRT in Croatia (one and two) and RUV in Iceland (one and two). CBBC in the UK and New Zealand’s TVNZ have also both picked up the third season.

The show’s protagonist is a small-town girl with dreams of being a singer-songwriter who saves her grandmother’s café by starting a successful open mic night. Produced by Aircraft Pictures in association with Cloudco Entertainment and WexWorks Media—and with financial support from The Shaw Rocket Fund—Holly Hobbie is executive produced by showrunner Sarah Glinski (Degrassi: The Next Generation).
