eOne & ViacomCBS Networks UK Pact for Ricky Zoom Season Two


Entertainment One (eOne) is set to launch the second season of Ricky Zoom through ViacomCBS Networks UK, Nick Jr. and Channel 5’s Milkshake!

“We are thrilled to bring Ricky Zoom back to the number one channel for preschoolers in the U.K. with Milkshake! and Nick Jr.,” said Monica Candiani, executive VP of content sales, Family & Brands. “The show has had such strong success in the U.K. among young viewers, allowing us to secure a number of licensing partners across a variety of categories. We can’t wait for audiences to watch season two, which I am sure will deliver even more exciting all-bike adventures in the colorful world of Wheelford.”

“We’re delighted to be welcoming back Ricky Zoom and his two-wheeled friends on Nick Jr. in June and Milkshake! later in the year in the U.K.,” added Louise Bucknole, VP of kids’ programming for ViacomCBS Network UK & Ireland. “It’s a fun and playful show that is a favorite among preschoolers, and we look forward to sharing their new adventures with our young viewers.”

The CGI-animated series follows Ricky, a speed-loving, adventure-seeking, little red rescue bike who loves to zoom around Wheelford. Since its launch in July 2020, Ricky Zoom has secured a list of leading licensees across a range of categories. Joining master toy partner TOMY are Penguin (story, activity, novelty books); Redan (magazines); Character World (bedding); MV Sports (wheeled toys); Ravensburger (puzzles and games); Cooneen (nightwear and socks); Blues (daywear); and Drew Pearson (accessories).
