Another Season for Singaporean Adaptation of Old Enough!


Singapore’s Mediacorp has slated a third season of its local adaptation of Nippon TV’s reality format Old Enough!

In Singapore, the family-friendly franchise has been adapted by Mediacorp for On the Red Dot, a current affairs show investigating issues close to home. Season three features Singaporean youngsters aged 2 to 5 who have spent most—if not all—of their pivotal developmental years under pandemic restrictions.

Old Enough! season three will be airing in Singapore every Friday at 9:30 p.m. from November 11 to December 2  via meWATCH, Channel 5 and CNA. The half-hour episodes will also be available on CNA Insider YouTube and CNA Digital.

Moe Kanzaki, international business development, Nippon TV, said: “I am very pleased to launch the highly anticipated new season of Old Enough! in Singapore. Having recently also announced the option sale to the Netherlands, we are so proud to see that Old Enough! is becoming a format that is loved around the world, changing its form little by little as it is localized for audiences to enjoy in different territories. We are grateful to the team of Mediacorp for the great success of the past two seasons, and we are confident that this latest season will be another hit.”

Sharon Hun Ee Lin, deputy chief editor for current affairs at Mediacorp, said: “Old Enough! has been one of the most well-received series for On the Red Dot, so we are glad that we are finally able to deliver brand new episodes for our viewers. We hope the third season will continue to capture the imagination and hearts of Singaporeans while bringing home the simple joys of growing up and going out in a post-pandemic world. Apart from amusing our audiences, we aim to highlight the importance of inculcating independence and a spirit of adventure in kids, whose limited interactions beyond their households can now be broadened as we learn to live with the coronavirus.”
