Gavin & Stacey star Joanna Page is returning as the voice of Poppy Cat in the new second series of popular animated show.

The second series launches on Nick Jr from September 9th, and is set to air at 9am every weekday.

Poppy Cat is co-produced by Coolabi's television production arm, Coolabi Productions and King Rollo Films, and was commissioned by Nick Jr. in the UK.

Series one of the show currently airs in more than 140 territories worldwide and is a top-rated show on Nick Jr. UK, on Sprout in the US, in France on France5 and in Spain on TVE.

“It is exciting that Poppy Cat has been commissioned for a second season," said Page.

"All of our hard work and enthusiasm from the first series has paid off. I got involved with the show because the stories are so sweet, and it is just so great for children – all of the magical adventures which encourage them to use their imagination, and going off to different worlds, is just so wonderful.

"My daughter Eva loves watching Poppy Cat. She is fascinated with the bright colours and all of the different characters and their voices. I think subconsciously she feels a connection with the orange cat, Poppy Cat. I love voicing the character, particularly since becoming a mum - and as it is already established as a popular pre-school show, it gives me a lot of kudos with my mummy friends.

"Seriously though, I think its great when kids can relate to a character, and for a show to bring to life their potential for imaginative play and creativity. As this series is jam-packed with fun adventures and even more colourful characters, I think the fan base will only continue to grow."

Zuzu the dog, Mo the Mouse, Alma the rabbit, Egbert the badger and Owl are all returning for series two.

There are currently 17 UK licensing partners for Poppy Cat and Coolabi has recently appointed two new licensing agents, Firefly Brand Management in the US and El Ocho in Spain.
