Created and written by Joe Brumm and produced by the multiple Emmy Award-winning Ludo Studio for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and BBC Studios, the first part of the new season features 25 seven-minute stories that will bring even more relatable moments of family life to audiences everywhere. These episodes will also arrive on Disney Channel and Disney Junior later this year in territories around the world. The second half of Season Three will be available on the same platforms at a later date.

“Love for Bluey has exploded among viewers across the globe, and we’re delighted to debut another exciting season that will give fans more opportunities to spend time with Bluey and her family,” said Henrietta Hurford-Jones, director of Children’s Content Partnerships, BBC Studios. “We’re so happy to be working with a partner like Disney that shares our enthusiasm for the series, which has become part of the cultural zeitgeist and a co-viewing winner worldwide.”

Charlie Aspinwall and Daley Pearson, executive producers and co-founders, Ludo Studio, added: “We’ve been creating Bluey together for over five years at Ludo and every day is a privilege to turn up and create the show with each artist at the studio. We love this crew, we love this cast and we’re so proud and happy that their work is being welcomed and loved by homes around the world.”

Bluey Season Three builds on the series’ first two multi-award-winning seasons with new friends and locations. The premiering episodes also include a range of home-based stories that reflect everyday family life with relatable themes such as making dad a birthday breakfast, keeping promises and getting one’s own bedroom. Season Three will also feature original takes on games like Musical Statues and Pass the Parcel, among others.

Bluey has been a runaway hit since its 2019 debut in the US. The series was Disney Junior’s No. 1 ratings driver with kids 2-5 in 2021 and the first half of 2022 and has been a Top 2 most-watched TV series with Kids 2-5 for four consecutive quarters. In Canada, Bluey is the No. 2 program with kids 2-11 and kids 2-5 on Disney Junior nationally, and on ABC in Australia, Bluey is the No. 1 children’s show across all age groups (since 2019). With Season 3 already airing in Australia, the show has performed 2.3x above timeslot average audience (total audience) and the new episodes achieved 14 of the top 20 broadcasts on free-to-air TV in 2021.
