“We are thrilled to be working with Brand Focus and 20tooLicensing, enabling us to expand Oggy & the Cockroaches in these key markets," commented Marie-Laure Marchand, senior vice president of global licensing at Xilam. "The international growth of the brand is a major strategic priority as we launch the show’s new 78 x seven-minute episodes this month.”

The sixth and seventh seasons of Oggy & the Cockroaches are slated to premiere in 2017/2018. 

In the UK, Oggy & the Cockroaches has been sold to Nickelodeon and Netflix, and in the Middle East broadcasters include Cartoon Network Middle East, ejunior, Gulli Bil Arabi, Netflix, Amazon and Iciflix.
