Germany’s Super RTL and Spain’s Atresmedia Television have pre-bought the rights to two seasons of the new Alvinnn!!! and The Chipmunks TV series. 

The series is written, produced, voiced and directed by Janice Karman and Ross Bagdasarian of Bagdasarian Productions, the producers of the previous Eighties TV series and Chipmunks movies.

“Alvinnn!!! and The Chipmunks is one of the few all-time classics in animation, as it combines cool characters, funny stories and musical elements in a fantastic way," said Carsten Göttel, programme director of Super RTL.

"Both kids and their parents will love the fresh and modern touch Janice Karman and Ross Bagdasarian gave to them. The series is a perfect example for the great value of a classic brand."

The new show will debut in Germany and Spain in early 2015.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with PGS on such an amazing property as Alvinnn!!! and The Chipmunks," said José Antonio Antón, director of programming and theme channels, Atresmedia.

"Neox Kidz is now, after only nine months on the air, the leading channel in Spain for kids aged nine to 12 and the fastest-growing children’s channel in the country.

"We have acquired several of the most important upcoming franchises in the market and are sure that Alvin will be a wonderful addition to our already very strong line-up,"

The new series marks the first time in 20 years that the popular Chipmunk gang will star in a TV series.

“We continue to be absolutely overwhelmed by the response to our new series,” said Ross Bagdasarian.

“Janice and I have put our hearts and souls into this new series and are so pleased to see that major broadcasters like Super RTL and Atresmedia Television are eager to share it with their viewers.”

Alvinnn!!! and The Chipmunks has been commissioned by M6 in France and is currently licensed to Nickelodeon for more than 70 Nick channels around the world.
