New Peppa Pig content secured through to 2027

104 additional new episodes of preschool favourite heading into production; Astley Baker Davies passes baton on to British animation studio, Karrot.

Hasbro’s global content studio, eOne has outlined a new content plan for preschool favourite Peppa Pig, which confirms that 104 x five-minute episodes have been greenlit for production, ensuring a continuous pipeline of fresh content through to 2027.

The addition of the new animated content will take the total number of episodes in the Peppa Pig catalogue to 485.

Astley Baker Davies, the original creators of Peppa Pig, will work closely with eOne to transition creative production duties to the award-winning British animation studio Karrot. The animation style, music and voice talent will remain unchanged.

“As demand for Peppa Pig remains as strong now as it’s ever been, we couldn’t be more excited to announce that additional new episodes are underway,” said Rebecca Harvey, evp global brand and marketing at eOne Family & Brands. “In creating the global evergreen preschool series, Astley Baker Davies have achieved a rare, once in a generation success story.  The show’s enduring popularity is a tribute to their skill as storytellers and their dedication to the characters and their craft. We wish them every success as they embark on their next adventure.”

Rebecca continued: “We remain committed to producing fresh Peppa Pig content that will continue to resonate with each new generation and that will underpin the long-term future of the property. We are, therefore, delighted to welcome award-winning British animation studio, Karrot, who will honour all the elements of the show that make it beloved of families around the world.”

eOne continues to drive growth for Peppa Pig with an investment in new content, fresh CP lines and wide-reaching brand marketing plans. Series nine kicks off this spring with the new four-part US special which sees Peppa and family take a road trip around America followed by a further 22 new episodes that will roll out globally throughout 2021.

Inspired by these new episodes, the theme of ‘Peppa Adventures’ will extend into the retail debut of the first ever global toy line from Hasbro.
