It has been announced that the Emmy Award-winning Australian series, Bluey, is bounding onto screens for an all-new second season July 10th 2020 on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW. All season two episodes will subsequently air on Disney Junior. And I’ve confirmed that the second season will be coming to Disney+ in the US once it’s finished its initial run on the Disney Junior channel.
The first season of the heart-warming show, brought to you by BBC Studios, will continue to air on Disney Junior and Disney Channel, and will remain available to stream on Disney+.
Blueyfollows the adventures of the lovable and inexhaustible 6-year-old Blue Heeler puppy, Bluey, who lives with her Dad (Bandit), her Mum (Chilli) and 4-year-old little sis, Bingo.
“Bluey has won the hearts of kids and parents with its beautiful animation and honest take on modern family life. The show offers relatable situations for engaging kids every day, which is so important to parents at this current time,” said Henrietta Hurford-Jones, Director of Children’s Content Partnerships, BBC Studios. “Disney Junior and Disney Channel are the perfect homes for a brand new season of inspirational episodes, bringing families together for a genuine co-viewing experience that delivers laughs as well as real, impactful messages.”
“We love that kids and parents are embracing Bluey all across America. It’s really wonderful to see a kids programming from Australia resonating so much with U.S. audiences,” said Bluey EPs and Ludo co-founders, Charlie Aspinwall and Daley Pearson. “We love hearing from fans on social media and hope everyone enjoys this new season, as much as we enjoyed making it!”
Season 2 introduces viewers to more of Bluey and Bingo’s friends and extended family, as well as a variety of imaginative and ingenious games, including Tickle Crabs, Fancy Restaurant, Rug Island, and many more. The season also shines a spotlight on Bandit and Chilli’s relationship with their daughters, as they continue to juggle work and childcare. In addition, Anthony Field, the world-famous original and current Blue Wiggle of The Wiggles, lends his voice to characters featured in two of the new episodes, including one of the season premiere episodes “Dance Mode.”
On July 27, the first volume of Bluey Season 1 will available for purchase through Apple iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, and other digital retailers. There will be six volumes – a new one available every three weeks. The retail price for each volume will be $9.99 USD.
To further extend all the fun and gameplay of the popular series, the eagerly awaited debut line of Bluey toys from Moose Toys is set to launch at retail nationwide later this summer.
