Ryan’s world is about to get a little bit bigger.
The preschool series Ryan’s Mystery Playdate — inspired by the Ryan’s World YouTube channel — is expanding into international markets, launching a new mobile game, and will receive a fourth season on Nickelodeon.
German fans will be able to watch the first two seasons of the series on Amazon FreeTime in English starting this July, and in German starting in August. The third season will premiere in October. The series, produced by Pocket.watch, is already available in the UK, Canada, Australia, and the U.S., where it picked up an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Preschool Children’s Series.
In the U.S., the fourth season from Nickelodeon will feature a Playdate Command Center, which will give kids the ability to play a game or interact with Ryan through video call technology. Some of the Playdates will be animated, giving kids the chance to travel through time and to multiple locations with current and historical figures.
A new mobile game called Blast will transport kids directly into fun puzzles. They will join with Ryan to match colors, earn power-ups, and collect guests including a fireman, nurse, and martial artist. Kids can unlock mystery boxes, spin the mystery wheel, drop the hintamajig, and enjoy other familiar elements from the show. The app will launch this fall through Pocket.watch’s gaming division p.w. Games.
