The ZAG Co.‘s Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir has a new broadcast home in the U.S.
Disney Channel begins airing the series today, having acquired distribution rights for seasons one and two of the international hit. Miraculous is a top-rated series across Disney Europe, but its broadcast presence in the U.S. has been inconsistent, bouncing from Nickelodeon to Netflix prior to landing at Disney Channel.
“After 10 years of intense work with all of our teams, and partners who have dedicated their lives to this labor of love for Miraculous, there is nothing more rewarding than to have the opportunity and privilege to see our Ladybug landing on Disney in America,” says Jeremy Zag, who developed the series alongside Thomas Astruc and Nathanaël Bronn. “From the bottom of my heart I want to thank every Disney EMEA team for their creative support and Disney USA for their trust and kindness for this new chapter of Miraculous.”
The Paris-set superhero saga developed a growing stateside fan base hungry for the adventures of two seemingly typical teens with secret identities, Marinette and Adrien — who magically transform into superheroes, Ladybug and Cat Noir.
Miraculous continues to grow at retail, with toys, consumer products, and publishing — all of which should be fueled by the added visibility that airings on Disney Channel will bring.
