The new series is comprised of 52 episodes, each following the unpredictable and exciting adventures of Dennis and friends in Beanotown. it kicks off with episode one titled Beat the Bus that sees new teacher Miss Mistry taking Class Three on an outing to the Flumes ‘o’ Doom water theme park.

Last year Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed season one received nominations at Kidscreen, the British Animation awards and was nominated for an International Emmy. At launch it was the highest-rated animated show on CBBC for six to 12-year-olds and one of the top 10 shows for kids across all channels (including The X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing).

Tim Searle, head of animation at Beano Studios, said: “Dennis and friends burst back onto our screens this summer, with loads more mayhem and mischief to look forward to in Beanotown. We’ve had a blast making the shows and hope that this new series will bring tons of laughs, inspire imaginations and encourage the everyday rebellion that’s been at the heart of Beano for over 80 years.”
