Olivier Dumont, managing director of eOne Family, commented: “Since PJ Masks launched on Disney Junior and France 5, we’ve been delighted by both the fans’ instant admiration for the series and also the broadcasters’ complete commitment to the show. Commencing production on a second series, whilst PJ Masks is still launching around the world, speaks to its potential to be the next big pre-school hit, and we look forward to introducing new narratives and characters that will excite the show’s growing fanbase around the world.”

These toys will roll-out to international territories in 2017.

eOne also has a comprehensive marketing strategy that will see the launch of new music videos and digital content such as apps and an interactive PJ Masks website.
