Rainbow Rangers Season Three Set for Nick Jr.


Nickelodeon’s Nick Jr. channel in the U.S. is slated to roll out all-new episodes of Genius Brands International’s Rainbow Rangers series.

The third broadcast season of Rainbow Rangers will debut on Nick Jr.’s Sunday Girls Rule block at 11 a.m. on October 11 with a special Halloween-themed episode. Subsequent episodes of the CGI-animated action-adventure preschool series will air in the same timeslot through November 22.

The premiere of Rainbow Rangers’ third season coincides with the recent Walmart retail launch of the brand’s multi-figure action pack from Mattel’s Fisher-Price.

The team behind the series includes Rob Minkoff (Disney’s The Lion King director), Shane Morris (Disney’s Frozen co-writer), Tim Mansfield and New York Times best-selling author and Emmy Award-nominated writer Elise Allen (Dinosaur Train, Lion Guard, Barbie specials), who serves as head writer and co-creator. Michael Maliani directs the series, while Andy Heyward, Genius Brands’ chairman and CEO and multiple Emmy Award-winning producer, serves as executive producer.

In addition to Nick Jr. in the U.S., Rainbow Rangers airs on Corus Entertainment’s Treehouse (Canada), Televisa and BLIM TV (Mexico), Nine Network (Australia), CCTV and iQiyi (China), Nickelodeon and NOGGIN (Latin America), Cartoonito (Italy), TV2 (Hungary), NOGA (Israel), Mini Mini (Poland), Canal Panda (Portugal), Discovery Kids (Middle East) and Pikaboo (Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Herzegovina).

Jess Brinder, VP of international distribution for Genius Brands International, said: “In November, we will be heading into our third year of our broadcast partnership with Nick Jr. for this unique series that promotes empowerment, diversity, friendship and adventure. The support from Nick Jr. since the launch of Rainbow Rangers in 2018 has been amazing, and the upcoming October premiere dovetails nicely with the launch of our first toy line from Mattel in Walmart stores.”
