Hey Duggee Scores Fourth Season


BBC Studios and CBeebies have commissioned a fourth season of the animated series Hey Duggee from Studio AKA.

The order is for 40 brand-new episodes. Hey Duggee, which launched in 2014, is a six-time BAFTA and International Emmy Award-winning hit. In 2020, it was the most-watched kids’ show on BBC iPlayer, with over 192 million requests.

Henrietta Hurford-Jones, director of children’s and executive producer of Hey Duggee for BBC Studios, said: “Hey Duggee is so popular with both parents and children, and I’m sure they’ll be as delighted as we are that a new series is on the way. We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved so far and how much people love Duggee and The Squirrels—so we’re delighted to be working with the hugely talented Studio AKA once more and can’t wait for you to see it!”

Sue Goffe, head of production at Studio AKA, said: “We’re thrilled to be continuing our glorious Duggee adventure with BBC Studios and CBeebies. A huge thank you to our extraordinary creative team for all their hard work, and to all our viewers for your continued love and support for the show. Prepare yourselves for more gems to come!”

Kate Morton, head of commissioning and acquisitions for 0-6 at BBC Children’s, said: “Hey Duggee is a staple in households right across the U.K., so we’re thrilled to continue our adventure with him and The Squirrels on CBeebies. Just like his young fans, all of us at BBC Children’s can’t wait to see what he gets up to next!”
