The second season of DHX Media’s new Teletubbies series is priming for launch in the US this afternoon on popular kids’ network Nick Jr.
Hitting the airwaves at 2pm ET, the returning pre-school series aims to deliver laughter, learning and fun, while also welcoming exciting changes for the iconic foursome. Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po will discover new areas of Teletubbyland, extend their friendship to the adorable Tiddlytubbies and ride on the brand new honk honk Tubby Car.
Josh Scherba, EVP of distribution and content at DHX Media, said: “We are delighted to have the Teletubbies return to the U.S. for season two, especially since Nick Jr.’s far-reaching network will enable kids across America to access the show during the summer holidays.”
Teletubbies is a mainstay of pre-school programming and has reached more than one billion children to date and the original episodes have aired in over 120 territories in 45 different languages. The modernised Teletubbies series stays true to the original, but is designed to captivate today’s digital toddlers with updated elements and CGI-enhancements, introducing a contemporary twist for a new generation of pre-schoolers.
