Following the success of season one – which began airing on the channel late summer of 2018 – Milkshake! has acquired season two of Millimages’ preschool show, Pirata & Capitano. Consisting of a further 52 x 11 minute episodes, the new season will continue to follow the crew of the ship, The Pink Skull, as they carry on with their never-ending quest for treasure across the islands of the Great Sea.

The new episodes are scheduled to air in 2020.

“We are delighted that Milkshake! have come back for the second season which is currently in production,” said Ian Wickham, director of Licensing Link Europe, which is building the licensing programme for Pirata & Capitano in the UK and Ireland. “The first season has proved to be an outright success. With more storylines, more action and more adventure to come, we are very much looking forward to what season two brings, as well as the impact that this will have, as we continue to build out a promising licensing programme for the property.”

Milkshake! is home to some of the world’s favourite pre-school characters. Popular shows include Peppa Pig, Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, Shane The Chef, Floogals, Digby Dragon, Little Princess, Wissper, Noddy: Toyland Detective, Thomas & Friends, Fireman Sam, PAW Patrol, Top Wing, Shimmer & Shine and Nella the Princess Knight.
