DHX Media to produce second season of Teletubbies

DHX Media is developing a second season of the new Teletubbies.

Award-winning UK production company, Darrall Macqueen, will return to make 60 more episodes of the iconic show for DHX and CBeebies.

“The new Teletubbies has clearly struck a chord with UK audiences, and we look forward to sharing more wonderful Tubbyland adventures with viewers tuning in on CBeebies," said Steven DeNure, president and COO of DHX Media.

"We expect this to be an exciting year for the Teletubbies as we continue to rollout this iconic brand worldwide.”

Kay Benbow, controller of CBeebies, added: “Since it launched, the new series of Teletubbies has been a huge hit with our very youngest viewers. I am delighted to commission more episodes of this much loved show, so that the CBeebies audience can continue to enjoy and discover a world of fun in Tubbyland.”

Season two will see the Teletubbies discover a new area of Teletubbyland called the Hidey Hup, a hidden glade containing equipment for physical Teletubby fun including the Tubby Bouncy, Tubby Slidey, Tubby Uppy Downy and the Tubby Spinny. 

The new series will also debut the Tubby Car as well as more interactions with the Tiddlytubbies.
