The Emmy Award-winning animated kids' series returns with more unpredictable and hilarious adventures of the young Blue Heeler pup, her sister Bingo, and Mum and Dad; episodes will follow on Disney Channel and Disney Junior later this year.
The Emmy Award-winning animated kids' series Bluey returns to Disney+ with its worldwide Season 3 debut August 10 on Disney+. Created and written by Joe Brumm, the show is produced by award-winning Ludo Studio for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and BBC Studios. The new season hits with two parts, the first featuring 25 seven-minute stories featuring everyday comic moments of family life that will also arrive on Disney Channel and Disney Junior later this year. The second half of the new season will be available on these platforms at a later date.
“Love for Bluey has exploded among viewers across the globe, and we’re delighted to debut another exciting season that will give fans more opportunities to spend time with Bluey and family,” said Henrietta Hurford-Jones, Director of Children's Content Partnerships, BBC Studios. “We’re so happy to be working with a partner like Disney that shares our enthusiasm for the series, which has become part of the cultural zeitgeist and a co-viewing winner worldwide.”
Ludo Studio executive producers and co-founders Charlie Aspinwall and Daley Pearson added, "We've been creating Bluey together for over five years at Ludo, and every day is a privilege to turn up and create the show with each artist at the studio. We love this crew; we love this cast, and we're so proud and happy that their work is being welcomed and loved by homes around the world.”
The show stars Bluey, a 6-year-old Heeler pup who loves to play but turns everyday family life into extraordinary adventures that unfold in unpredictable and hilarious ways. She always brings her family – including younger sister Bingo, parents Bandit and Chilli – and her friends and community into her world of fun and discovery.
The third season builds on the series’ first two with new friends and locations. The premiering episodes include a range of home-based stories of usual and unexpected occurrences of everyday family life with relatable themes such as making dad a birthday breakfast, keeping promises, and getting one’s own bedroom. It also features original takes on games such as ‘Musical Statues’ and ‘Pass the Parcel.’
In 2020 the series won an International Emmy Award in the Preschool category, four 2021 Kidscreen Awards (Best Animated Series, Best Directing, Best Writing, Best Music), a 2021 Rockie Award (Best Animation Program for Pre-school Viewers), a 2021 ARIA Award for Best Children’s Album, the 2021 AACTA Best Children’s Program, and a nomination for Best Animated Series at the 27th Critics' Choice Awards.
Jointly commissioned by BBC Studios & ABC, the show is produced by Ludo Studio in association with Screen Queensland and Screen Australia.
