Turner picks up in-production third season of ‘Oddbods’ for Cartoon Network and Boomerang (Latin America) and Boomerang (EMEA).
One Animation has announced that the third season of its award-winning, kids’ CG animated comedy Oddbods has gone into production. The new season of 60 seven-minute episodes was greenlit earlier this year and has since been picked up by broadcast partners, including Turner for Cartoon Network and Boomerang in Latin America, and Boomerang across EMEA.
The studio also revealed new broadcast deals for the previous long-form season, including Nickelodeon (Benelux), SVT (Sweden) and Carousel (Russia). Netflix began its global rollout to audiences in the US, Australia and New Zealand in April.
Oddbods follows the crazy antics of seven hilarious characters: Zee, Fuse, Bubbles, Slick, Pogo, Jeff and Newt, and has amassed a loyal online following with a cumulative 1.5 billion views, and tens of thousands of fans on social media.
Sashim Parmanand, CEO of One Animation, said: “Oddbods has a strong fan base spanning not only kids but also teens, young adults and parents. Our broadcast partners are reporting strong viewing figures, and we’ve seen phenomenal growth from our social media following over the last 12 months. Both of which reflect the change in viewing habits — increasingly audiences want to engage across multiple platforms whether it’s a TV or a mobile phone.”
One Animation is based in Singapore. This will be the second long-form Oddbods season and third season overall, including the short-form first season.
