Another Season of Creeped Out for CBBC, Family Channel


DHX Media and BBC Children’s Productions are producing a 10-episode second installment of the live-action series Creeped Out for CBBC in the U.K. and Family Channel in Canada.

Creeped Out is an original anthology series featuring sci-fi, horror, adventure, suspense, fantasy and mystery. Production on season two begins this summer, with filming taking place in Toronto and the North West of England. The show is created and executive produced by Bede Blake and Robert Butler.

The first installment of Creeped Out debuted on CBBC late last year and will premiere on Family Channel in the fall. It has also been snapped up by Netflix worldwide (excluding the U.K. and Canada) for streaming this October. The show is internationally distributed by DHX Media.

“Kids love season one of Creeped Out, and we’re excited to continue our work with BBC Children’s Productions to keep the chills coming,” said Josh Scherba, the president of DHX Media. “When done right, spooky anthologies like this have universal appeal, and we know that for season two, the talented writing and production teams in the U.K. and Canada have some truly hair-raising tales to share with fans around the world.”

“These creepy moral tales of the unexplained and unexpected are told uniquely from a kid’s perspective, and we’re thrilled that The Curious has rounded up another batch to thrill and chill,” added Helen Bullough, the head of BBC Children’s Productions. “The format allows the talented creators, writers and production teams to tell an astonishing array of stories, ranging this time from a spooky whodunit told backwards to a smart house that takes revenge on its lazy inhabitants, and a seasonal special about a group of kids who are accidentally locked in a toy store at Christmas and encounter a very unusual Santa.”
