Entertainment One (eOne) announced a new batch of episodes of its superhero preschool hit series, PJ Masks, are slated for delivery from April 2020.
Produced by eOne and Frog Box, in collaboration with broadcaster Disney Junior, season four will see the show’s heroes— Catboy, Owlette and Gekko— save the day in all-new adventures. For the first time the series will open with a special four-part episode taking PJ Masks fans on a 44-minute action-packed adventure.
“With a growing global fan base, PJ Masks has firmly cemented its position as a leading preschool animated property and demand for new content is extremely high,” said eOne’s Olivier Dumont, president, Family & Brands. “We’re thrilled to be bringing audiences another 52 episodes that will fuel the growth of the global licensing programme and demonstrate our unwavering commitment to the future of the property.”
Since its debut in 2015, PJ Masks has become one of the top-rated broadcast and licensing properties for preschoolers airing regularly on multiple FTA and VOD platforms around the world. Annual global retail sales now reach $1.15 billion with revenues increasing by 39 percent this past financial year.
As the fourth series soars into production, the third series prepares to land on Disney Junior EMEA, LATAM, ANZ, and Asia later this year following a successful April launch in the U.S.
