Fia’s Fairies Gets Second Season


The second season of Fia’s Fairies, from Little Moon Animation, is set to bow on RTÉjr in February 2025.

Fia’s Fairies is designed to introduce young viewers and their families to an additional language. The series tells the story of Fia and her best friend as they go on adventures to Fairy Island, where they learn the enchanting Irish language from a pair of fairies and all their magical friends.

Fia’s Fairies stars Dublin-born Alisha Weir (Matilda the Musical, Netflix) alongside Elsie Akinduko, Gráinne Bleasdale and Doireann Ní Chorragáin. Season one began broadcasting on October 31, 2022.

Following the launch of the successful Fia’s Fairies YouTube channel, key highlights of the 26-episode forthcoming season are its introduction of new characters, locations and unique musical episodes.

Suzanne Kelly, head of children’s and young people’s content at RTÉ, said: “I am thrilled that Fia’s Fairies season two is returning to RTÉjr in 2025, and I know I’m not the only one that’s excited! This incredibly intuitive language series is back by popular demand for more fun and adventure in Fairy Island. Fia and her best friend Ameer, along with their fairy friends Bláithín and Cúán, have become firm favorites on RTÉjr with our preschool audience and parents, and the clever storylines that embed language learning so seamlessly have delivered wonderful engagement across all of our platforms. We can’t wait!”

Vanessa Robinson, creator and producer of the series, added: “Our vision for Fia’s Fairies has always been clear: to present the Irish language in a modern, accessible and engaging format and to encourage children to become more autonomous language learners. This second season, particularly with its musical focus for young audiences, reaffirms our commitment to this goal, and we are looking forward to seeing our audience connect further with our show.”

Eoghan Garvey, director, remarked, “The overwhelming response to our first season was a testament to the series’ potential. We are excited to build on this momentum and deliver a compelling second season that captivates both our dedicated fan base and new viewers.”

Distributed by Monster Entertainment, Fia’s Fairies has also already begun broadcasting in North America and Central Asia. Monster Entertainment’s Andrew Fitzpatrick commented, “Buyers have responded really well to this adorable series, so we’re delighted to be able to bring them a second season so quickly.”
