Beano Studios has secured a second series of its popular animated show Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed on kids’ channel CBBC.
The latest news means that a further run of 52 episodes will land on the channel following the successful launch of the International Emmy nominated CGI show. Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed was the highest rated animated show on CBBC at launch for six to 12 year olds.
The run of eleven minute episodes will follow Beano’s hero character Dennis (voiced by Freddie Fox) and hit group of fearless friends return to screens with a cast of favourites. Dennis and Gnasher will be joined by Rubi JJ, Pieface and his pet potato Paul.
Following its successful UK debut, the show has since been sold to 24 countries and airs on free to air public service broadcasters such as Super RTL in Germany, Rai in Italy and France Television.
Emma Scott, CEO of Beano Studios, said: “We’re really excited to be working on the second series of Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed and look forward to sharing more adventures from TV’s most notoriously cheeky duo.
“It’s great to see that Beano characters resonate with today’s young audiences globally. We hope that the new series with Dennis and his gang will empower and encourage everyday rebellion, unlimited imagination and big laughs for kids everywhere.”
Cheryl Taylor, head of content, BBC Children’s added: “Dennis and Gnasher continue to be two of our best loved characters and their ardent fans will be delighted to see this rambunctious series return to CBBC.”
