CBBC has renewed the latest series featuring Dennis The Menace, Dennis & Gnasher: Unleased, for a second season. Fifty-two episode have been ordered for the show’s second season.
“Dennis and Gnasher continue to be two of our best loved characters and their ardent fans will be delighted to see this rambunctious series return to CBBC”, said Cheryl Taylor, Head of Content for BBC Children’s.
Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed follows Dennis, who nothing or no-one can contain. The more extreme the adventure, the louder the rock track, the more epic the skateboard trick, the more Dennis wants to take the lead. Dennis is inseparable from Gnasher, a stray dog he adopted and now his faithful sidekick. They are joined by their irrepressible, adventurous friends Rubi, JJ, Pieface and his pet potato Paul
The series hails from Beano Studios and features the voices of Freddie Fox (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Pride) as Dennis, Ryan Sampson (Plebs, After You’ve Gone) as Pieface, Rasmus Hardiker (Your Highness, Thunderbirds Are Go) as Walter, Kathryn Drysdale (St. Trinians, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps) as JJ, and Kelly Marie Stewart (Hollyoaks) as Rubi.
Following the show’s successful launch on CBBC, international distributor Jetpack Distribution has licensed Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed to Super RTL in German, SIC in Portugal, YLE in Finland, HSCC 8 in Israel, ABC in Australia, Emirates Cable in the United Arab Emirates, Rai in Italy, VTMKids in Belgium, TV Derana in Sri Lanka, TVNZ in New Zealand, ClanTVE in Spain, Barnkanalen SVT, in Sweden, France Televisions in France and RTE in Ireland
“We’re really excited to be working on the second series of Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed! and look forward to sharing more adventures from TV’s most notorious cheeky duo”, said Emma Scott, CEO of Beano Studios. “It’s great to see that the Beano characters resonate with today’s young audiences globally. We hope that the new series with Dennis and his gang will empower and encourage everyday rebellion, unlimited imagination and big laughs for kids everywhere.”
