Netflix is expanding its preschool content offering with original content focused on science, adventure and requisite nursery rhymes. The streamer announced second-season renewals of “Ridley Jones” and “Ada Twist, Scientist,” in addition to the bow of four new shows: “Action Pack,” “Big Tree City,” “The Creature Cases” and “Deepa and Anoop” — all debuting in 2022.
The series join other Netflix preschool offerings for kids aged 2-6, including “Ask the StoryBots,” “Mighty Little Bheem,” “Go! Go! Cory Carson,” “Gabby’s Dollhouse,” “CoCoMelon” and “Go, Dog. Go!”
“We’re creating preschool series for our youngest viewers and their families in over 190 countries to invite them to play, laugh, and learn with us,” Heather Tilert, head of preschool content at Netflix, wrote in a post.
The “Action Pack” is a group of kids — Treena, Watts, Wren and Clay — who use their incredible super powers as they take on the biggest threats in Hope Springs, implement the lessons taught by Mr. Ernesto at the Action Academy, and fulfill their ultimate mission of bringing out the good in everything, even in villains.
“The Creature Cases” animated action-comedy series follows the adventures of Sam Snow and Kit Casey, agents of CLADE: the Covert League of Animal Detective Experts. In a world populated exclusively by animals, these brilliant sleuths travel the globe solving mind-boggling mysteries that mix real zoological facts with wild detective action.
“Big Tree City” is an all-action, all-comedy series from Emmy Award winning Blue Zoo Animation. Hot sauce volcanoes, biscuit dinosaur mysteries and exploding soda pop factories — join the wild rescues of Major Prickles and his overzealous team, as they try to save the animal citizens of Big Tree City.
“Deepa & Anoop” hails from Mattel Television and follows the adventures of fun-loving 7-year-old Deepa and her best friend, Anoop, a color-changing elephant, at Deepa’s family’s bed and breakfast, Mango Manor.
“Ridley Jones” and her friends Peaches, Fred, Ismat, Dudley and Dante return for a second season continuing their nightly adventures when the lights go out, the doors lock shut, and all the exhibits come to life at The Museum of Natural History.
The second season of “Ada Twist, Scientist” follows a pint-sized scientist with a giant-sized curiosity, who aspires to discover the answer to absolutely everything. Ada, along with her best friends Iggy Peck and Rosie Revere will be back to explore more ways science is a part of everyday life.
