20-Episode Season of CG-Animated Hit to Feature New Pup and Debut Later This Year
NEW YORK - June 9, 2015 - Nickelodeon today announced the pickup of a third season of PAW Patrol, TV's number-one preschool series. A co-production with Spin Master Entertainment, season three (20 episodes) will debut later this year and introduce preschoolers to all-new adventures featuring the beloved pack of heroic rescue pups, including the addition of a brand-new puppy. The series features a curriculum that focuses on citizenship, social skills and problem-solving. PAW Patrol airs weekdays at 12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
"It's been great working with Spin Master Entertainment as a creative collaborator on the first two seasons of PAW Patrol," said Russell Hicks, President, Content Development and Production, Nickelodeon Group. "Marshall, Chase and the entire pack will take their heroic adventures to new heights in season three, and we can't wait to share these action-packed episodes with our audiences around the world."
"Nickelodeon has been an incredible partner for our team at Spin Master Entertainment and we look forward to deepening that relationship in 2016 and beyond," said Chairman and Co-CEO Ronnen Harary. "PAW Patrol has quickly evolved into one of the biggest preschool franchises on the planet and we have no doubt that fans young and old will love what's on tap for its third season."
The PAW Patrol pups will take their adventures to the sky in season three with an all-new rescue vehicle, the Air Patroller, that can transport Ryder and the gang anywhere in the world. Each pup will now be equipped to fly with custom jet packs, hover boards and special wings, ensuring that no job is out of the reach of these canine rescuers. In addition to new vehicles and equipment, the third season will also introduce new adventures and friends including Tracker, a jeep-driving pup with super hearing who lives in the jungle with Carlos.
PAW Patrol is a hit CG-animated series starring a pack of heroic rescue pups - Chase, Marshall, Rocky, Rubble, Zuma, Everest and Skye - who are led by a tech-savvy 10-year-old boy named Ryder. Together they work hard to show the people of Adventure Bay that "no job is too big, no pup is too small!"
