More Hey Duggee & Spin-Off Series in the Works


BBC Studios Kids & Family and CBeebies have commissioned a fifth season of the hit series Hey Duggee and a brand-new spin-off, Hey Duggee’s Squirrel Club.

Hey Duggee season five will feature 20 additional 7-minute episodes with all-new badges and even more adventures, imagination, gentle humor and learning through doing with Duggee, the squirrels and their friends. Comedian and presenter Alexander Armstrong returns to narrate.

The 26×7-minute series Hey Duggee’s Squirrel Club brings the beloved characters from Hey Duggee to the screen in a new format where viewers at home can also be a part of the Squirrel Club.

Both series are created by Grant Orchard, senior director at Studio AKA.

Cecilia Persson, managing director of BBC Studios Kids & Family, said: “We are so pleased to be working with the incredibly talented Studio AKA to deliver another brilliant series of Hey Duggee. We know the new Hey Duggee’s Squirrel Club will be a winner with fans. It taps into the have-a-go spirit of Hey Duggee very nicely, and it gives the viewers at home the chance to be a part of the Squirrel Club.”

Sue Goffe, managing director of Studio AKA, said: “We have some excellent new episodes in the pipeline that are sure to delight kids—and their parents! We are also very excited for Hey Duggee’s Squirrel Club. We’ve developed a wealth of Hey Duggee characters over the years, and this new spin-off series will be brilliant at giving those characters their own space to shine.”
