Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana is celebrating a successful first season of original animated series Ranger Rob with a greenlight for season two, comprising 14 new episodes. Over the Fall 2016 season, the show ranked No. 1 on Treehouse in Canada with boys 2-11, and has also received top ratings on TF1 (France), Super RTL (Germany), Disney Channel (Australia), Nickelodeon (Italy), Canal Panda (Portugal), YLE/TV2 (Finland) and Hop! (Israel).
“Ranger Rob ignites a sense of adventure and discovery in kids, and we have been overwhelmed with how kids and families have embraced the series and joined in on the fun with us,” said Pam Westman, Head of Nelvana Enterprises. “The journey has only just begun and fans should get ‘Ranger Ready’ for lots of new and exciting outdoor adventures to come in season two.”
The series follows 10-year-old ranger-in-training Rob around the Big Sky Park as he ziplines, swings, and snowboards, discovering and exploring all that the natural adventure park has to offer. Big Sky Park is a one-of-a kind place with every kind of outdoor environment within its borders and each episode of the series takes viewers on a new adventure, cultivating the spirit of exploration and curiosity, and inspiring kids to get outside to play and discover.
Another exciting development will come in Spring 2018 when master toy licensee Imports Dragon launches a line of Ranger Rob toys. Developed for preschoolers, the line will reflect the adventure and outdoor action of the show with vehicles, plush and small figures. The range will launch in Canada and key European territories, followed by a broader roll-out in the Fall.
