The second series of the Beano Studios hit animated TV show Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed! is set to premiere on CBBC on Monday 13th July 2020. The series will air weekdays at 7.10am, and be repeated at 3.25pm, with each episode available on iPlayer directly after broadcast.

Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed! season two is comprised of 52 x 11 minute episodes following the unpredictable and exciting adventures of Dennis and his friends in Beanotown.

Episode one, titled Beat the Bus, sees new teacher Miss Mistry taking Class Three on an outing to the Flumes ‘o’ Doom water theme park, and Walter pulls out all the stops to make Dennis late for the bus.

Dennis, voiced by Freddie Fox, and his group of mates Rubi, JJ, Pieface and his pet potato Paul, will be joined by new characters for season two, including Miss Mistry.

Last year, Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed! season one received nominations at Kidscreen, the British Animation awards and was nominated for an International Emmy. At launch it was the highest-rated animated show on CBBC for 6-12 year olds and one of the top 10 shows for kids across all channels.

Tim Searle, head of animation at Beano Studios, commented: “Dennis and friends burst back onto our screens this summer, with loads more mayhem and mischief to look forward to in Beanotown. We’ve had a blast making the shows and hope that this new series will bring tons of laughs, inspire imaginations and encourage the everyday rebellion that’s been at the heart of Beano for over 80 years.”

Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed! season two, episode one ‘Beat the Bus’ will air on Monday 13th July 2020 at 7.10am on CBBC.
