Waffle The Wonder Dog is returning to TV screens with a second series commissioned by CBeebies.

A further 30 x 11-minute episodes, including a Christmas special, are already in production with broadcast scheduled in 2019.

Cheryl Taylor, Head of Content for BBC Children’s commissioned the show for CBeebies in the UK, and says: ““Waffle the Wonder Dog is a pitch perfect comedy drama for under-7s. The series has hit the ground running on CBeebies - delighting families and their pets with its warm tone and hilarious storylines. Waffle is already a firm favourite with us all - such a clever dog!”

Aimed at four to seven year olds, the first series of the comedy drama premiered on CBeebies earlier this year, consistently winning its slot and chalking up over 20 million views on BBC iPlayer.

Michael Towner is Executive Producer for CBeebies, along side Maddy Darrall and Billy Macqueen of Darrall Macqueen, the independent production house behind the show.   

Billy Macqueen adds: “The tales of Waffle The Wonder Dog are full of fun and emotion and we are excited to be bringing more of his capers to Waffle’s fans. The serialised storyline featuring a blended family has resonated with our target audience and we are thrilled that the first series has been such a hit with viewers on both CBeebies and iPlayer.”

The commission of the second season follows the recent appointment of Golden Bear as master toy partner with a brand new range of plush toys launching very shortly in Q4 2018.
