ABC ME in Australia has given the go-ahead to a third installment of the animated hit The Deep, which will also launch on Netflix worldwide and on DHX Media’s Family CHRGD in Canada.
The Deep follows the adventures of the Nektons, a family of underwater explorers. The 13×30-minute new season will see the heroic foursome face off against the Monumentials, gigantic and powerful creatures that are waking up from a long sleep.
The Deep is a co-pro between Australia’s A Stark Production and Canada’s DHX Media, which also handles the show’s distribution.
“ABC ME brings children content that they love and we are excited to be expanding that experience with a new season of The Deep—a high-quality and engaging underwater adventure series like no other,” said Michael Carrington, the head of ABC Children’s Television.
“Since its debut, The Deep has brought waves of excitement to kids and families worldwide,” noted Josh Scherba, the executive VP of content and distribution at DHX Media. “With a third season now greenlit, and a host of licensing deals signed, the brand has become a bona fide global hit. Audiences love The Deep because it blends the closeness of family life with thrilling undersea adventures, teaching life lessons while sparking curiosity and a thirst for discovery.”
“We are extremely pleased to be announcing a third season of The Deep,” added Avrill Stark, the CEO of A Stark Production, and executive producer on the series. “With broadcast and streaming support from ABC, Netflix and Family CHRGD, plus some exciting licensing deals in place, we are looking forward to the continued local and international success of The Deep.”
