The Superhero Bunny League has already helped scores of kid comic book lovers learn how to read. And the crime-fighting rabbits will soon hit small screens worldwide in a new Nickelodeon series.
Nick has greenlit a 2D-animated concept based on the zany characters to be produced by Nickelodeon Animation under the working title Super Duper Bunny League. The 26-episode series is slated for a 2024 premiere in the US on Nick Jr., with an international rollout to follow.
It stars a group of super-powered, crime-fighting bunny pals who must protect the city they call home from their archnemesis and accidental creator, Dr. Fuzzleglove.
The comic book series (pictured), which first rolled out in 2015, is written by Jamie Smart and published by Oxford University Press under its Read with Oxford brand. Its stories target five- to -seven-year-olds and focus on reading comprehension. Smart will serve as a consultant on the animated series project, with Robert Scull and Jonny Belt attached as EPs.
Nick’s kids and family live-action division also announced a number of book-based concepts in development earlier this week, skewing toward tween and teen girls.
