DHX Media has licensed the exclusive broadcast rights for 30 new half-hour episodes of Teletubbies, which will begin airing on Nickelodeon’s Nick Jr. pre-school channel in 2017.

David Walliams and girl band star Rochelle Humes join the voice cast for season two, alongside Jim Broadbent, Fearne Cotton, Jane Horrocks, Daniel Rigby and Antonia Thomas from season one, as they lend their voices to Teletubbies’ distinctive Voice Trumpets.

“The new Teletubbies series is winning fans worldwide, and the pickup of another season in the US points to the enduring appeal of this global brand," said Josh Scherba, SVP of distribution at DHX Media. 

"With all the recognisable favorites as well as new features, the second season is a real treat for audiences both in the US on Nick Jr., and the U.K. where it will premiere exclusively on CBeebies next year.”

Licensees already on board in core categories for the Teletubbies brand include Character Options (master toy line, with distribution in North America and Northern Europe by Spin Master and Southern Europe by Giochi Preziozi) and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (DVD and EST), as well as book publishers Egmont (global rights excluding North America and China) and Simon & Schuster (North America).
