A new trailer has landed on the Bob the Builder YouTube channel for the new CGI-animated series.
The show will be debuting on Channel 5’s Milkshake on September 1st 2015, at 7.20am.
With Bob donning the same recognisable outfit, the new series will see the show continuing its long tradition of telling fun and interesting stories through positivity and teamwork with exciting characters, relatable locations and an aspirational hero.
All of the show’s core characters return for the new series, including Bob’s business partner Wendy and popular vehicles Scoop, Muck and Lofty.
There will also be new faces for viewers to meet, including Leo, an apprentice builder, Mayor Maria Madison, energetic young sports club members The Spring City Rockets and two new machines: a heavy-lifting low-loader truck called Two Tonne and a tower crane called Tiny.
The voice cast has also been renewed in the latest development in the show’s history with Lee Ingleby taking on the voice of Bob, Joanne Froggatt (Downtown Abbey) the voice of Wendy, Blake Harrison (Inbetweeners) the voice of Scoop and Jacob Scipio (CBeebies) the voice of new character Leo.
“Bob is the most popular builder in TV history and we’re excited to be taking him to the next level," said Christopher Keenan, VP global content and executive producer at HIT Entertainment Limited.
"While the new series retains the emotional warmth that has always given Bob the Builder a firm place in the hearts of young viewers, it’s now packed with more humour than ever before.
“The sky really is the limit for Bob, Scoop and the other members of the team and we’re looking forward to seeing where their adventures take us in the future.”
A new range of Bob the Builder consumer products are due to hit stores in late 2016.
