Ricky Zoom has zoomed onto the global market since its initial TV launch last year.
A second season for the Entertainment One (eOne) series is in production and will begin airing as early as this November.
“We are so proud of Ricky Zoom and its success to date,” says Olivier Dumont, president of family and brands at eOne. “It is premium original content produced by the very best talent and our strong roster of international broadcasters has super-charged the series to a high level of awareness around the world. We are very excited for the potential to explore even more ground in the second season. There are so many more stories to tell that will deepen the connection between the characters and our audience and we look forward to bringing them all-new adventures.”
The announcement comes ahead of the spring debut of TOMY’s toy line based on the preschool series. The toy launch will be followed by a limited range of additional consumer products, including publishing, puzzles and games, crafts, apparel, and accessories planned through 2021.
Ricky Zoom, along with PJ Masks and Peppa Pig, is among the properties that recently joined Hasbro through a major acquisition that brought eOne together with the Rhode Island-based toy and entertainment company last year.
