Netflix announced a new original spin-off series based on Justin Time, the hit Canadian animated series for pre-school aged kids.
Netflix ordered 13 half-hour episodes of Justin Time: The New Adventures from Guru Studios, which will be released for streaming in early 2016. The spin-off will follow Justin and best friends Olive and Squidgy on more fantastical adventures around the globe.
“We are excited to be working with some of the greatest animators in the world to bring new and original episodes of Justin Time to our members,” said Erik Barmack, Vice President of Content Acquisition for Netflix, in a statement. “The series has been a hit for us across several Netflix territories and we expect nothing less for the new series.”
The site had already picked up streaming rights for the first two seasons of the Sprout series, which airs on Disney Junior in Canada.
