  • AAS 2016 “Best in Show” winner Bluey gets second-season greenlight

    Brisbane, Australia-based Ludo Studio’s preschool hit Bluey—which made its market debut and was named “Best in Show” at AAS 2016—has been greenlit for a second 52 x seven-minute season by ABC Children’s and BBC Studios. Production will start in May 2019, for a 2020 launch in Australia on ABS KIDS and ABC KIDS iview.

    “The second season of Bluey will allow Ludo to continue to grow its animation studio, create 40 jobs in Queensland and inject close to AUS$6 million into the local economy,” says Queensland Premiere Annastacia Palaszczuk.

    Leading the charge on Bluey’s second season is showrunner/creator Joe Brumm (Charlie and Lola); exec producers Charlie Aspinwall and Daley Pearson (Ludo), Libbie Doherty (ABC Children’s) and Henrietta Hurford-Jones (BBC Studios); producer Sam Moor (CBeebies); and supervising director Richard Jeffrey (Tinga Tinga Tales).
