New Bing episodes heading to CBeebies

New content deal will see further 26 episodes begin to air from October 31.

Acamar Films has signed a significant new content deal with the BBC for a new series of its award-winning preschool property Bing.

A further 26 x seven minutes episodes are set to air on CBeebies and the BBC iPlayer from October 31 following the launch of the new episodes on Acamar’s new app Bing: Watch, Play, Learn.

The BBC has also relicensed the original 78 episodes, bringing the total number of episodes to 104.

The new series boasts a new voice cast – with newcomer Rafferty Railton as Bing, actor David Threlfall as Flop and Noah Hicks as Pando.

Two new key characters also join Bing and his friends for this series – Dr Molly, voiced by Tamsin Greig and Sula’s young cousin, Nicky, voiced by Xavi Nixon.

“We are delighted to continue our long partnership with the BBC; it has been a treat to get back into Bing world with our writing-team, as well as with our amazing ensemble cast,” said Mikael Shields, ceo of Acamar Films. “We’re all excited to show these new episodes to our highly discerning audience.”
