The hit kids’ comedy series – produced in association with Walker Productions and Kindle Entertainment – will return to TV screens with it latest installment this summer as the second season readies to air this August.

The show is based on the New York Times best-selling book series, Hank Zipzer: The World’s Greatest Underachiever which is co-written by Henry Winkler, famed for his role as The Fonz in Happy Days.

“With CBBC’s commitment to a third season, and with season two set to air from the summer, Hank will continue to win fans with more playful misbehavior.”
