Hit Entertainment has greenlit an eighth series of Fireman Sam, with 26 new ten-minute CG episodes due to be delivered in spring 2012.

The new series is being produced by China-based digital animation company, Xing Xing, which also worked on series six and seven of Fireman Sam.

Fireman Sam has been enjoying strong ratings on Mini CITV and Cartoonito following the switch to CGI programming.

"Fireman Sam's popularity has risen to new heights over the past 12 months and by green lighting an eighth series, Hit demonstrates its commitment to ensuring the future remains bright for TV's favourite fireman," said Marion Edwards, VP of current programming at Hit Entertainment.
