Paper Owl Films’ Happy the Hoglet has been ordered for a second season by commissioning broadcasters ITV and RTÉjr.

Happy the Hoglet follows a baby hedgehog’s adventures with his friends as they explore their feelings. The show aims to help toddlers understand their emotions.

Production of the next 26 episodes of Happy the Hoglet is planned to start in late 2024. Aardman is distributing seasons one and two.

Darren Nartey, acquisitions manager at ITV, commented: “We’re extremely delighted with the performance of Happy across our platforms. It’s a beautiful, engaging and well-written show, and our young audience has responded really well to it.”

Suzanne Kelly, head of children’s content at RTÉ, commented: “Happy the Hoglet and his wonderful bunch of friends reassure RTÉjr viewers that no matter how grumpy, sad or cross we are, we can work through it together. I am really excited about Happy the Hoglet on RTÉjr. Everyone could do with some Happy right now!”
