DHX Media and BBC Children’s Productions have received a ten episode order from CBBC in the UK and Family Channel in Canada for season two of the kids’ live action series, Creeped Out.
Production on the series of spooky tales for children begins this summer, filmed across Toronto and the North West of England. The first season premiered on CBBC last October and debuts on Family Channel this autumn.
The series has also been picked up by Netflix worldwide for streaming this October.
“Kids love season one of Creeped Out, and we are excited to continue our work with BBC Children’s Productions to keep the chills coming,” said Josh Scherba, president, DHX Media.
‘When done right, spooky anthologies like this have universal appeal, and we know that for season two, the talented writing and production teams in the UK and Canada have some truly hair-raising tales to share with fans around the world.”
Creeped Out is an original drama anthology series that combines sci-fi, horror, adventure, suspense, fantasy and mystery. Each story is introduced by The Curious, a masked story collector who appears at the beginning and end of each episode.
“these creepy moral tales of the unexplained and unexpected are told uniquely from a kids’ perspective, and we’re thrilled that The Curious has rounded up another batch to thrill and chill,” said Helen Bulldough, head of BBC Children’s Productions.
“The format allows the talented creators, writers and production teams to tell an astonishing array of stories, ranging this time from a spooky whodunit told backwards to a smart house that takes revenge on its lazy inhabitants.”
International distribution for Creeped Out is handled by DHX Media.
