Nickelodeon has greenlit a second season of Blue’s Clues & You!, with the show’s inaugural run debuting as the number one preschool series in its first week on air.
The second-season order includes an additional 20 episodes of the series. The new season will feature special appearances by Steve (Steve Burns), Joe (Donovan Patton) and Josh’s grandmother (Carolyn Fe), along with even more singing and dancing, exploration, celebration and clues that empower preschoolers to help their friends.
The curriculum-driven interactive series posted strong gains during its premiere week, up 38 percent in the 2-to-5 set over prior four weeks and 34 percent among total viewers. New episodes of Blue’s Clues & You! will continue to air weekdays at 11 a.m. on Nickelodeon.
Alongside the linear episodes, brand-new Blue’s Clues & You! play-along videos are currently available on Noggin, Nick’s interactive learning subscription for preschoolers. The play-along videos allow users to explore the stories in an immersive way and engage with live-action host Josh and the animated characters by tapping, touching or swiping to navigate through enhanced learning experiences. Preschoolers have the ability to customize elements, like the color of the clues or the creation of birthday cards for Blue and then see their designs appear throughout the video. The classic Blue’s Clues library is also available on Noggin and additional Blue’s Clues & You! play-along videos will continue to roll out into next year.
Original short-form content and full-length episodes of Blue’s Clues & You! are available now on NickJr.com and the Nick Jr. app. Episodes are also available on Nick Jr. On Demand and download-to-own services.
