February 27, 2024

Disney Branded Television, BBC Studios Kids & Family and Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) have announced that the next instalments of Bluey, including an extended length special, will premiere this April, marking the series’ first global rollout.

The first new episode, Ghostbasket, will premiere on April 7th, teeing up the debut of the 28-minute special, The Sign, premiering a week later on April 14th. Both episodes will air first via ABC Kids in Australia and then roll out globally the same day across Disney+, Disney Junior and Disney Channel in all other available regions (with the exception of China and New Zealand).

The Sign marks Bluey’s longest ever episode, and the trailer can be viewed here. Ghostbasket is a standard length episode. Both episodes are penned by series creator and writer Joe Brumm, directed by Richard Jeffery, and produced by Ludo Studio.

Bluey closed out 2023 as the No. 1 series for preschoolers and kids and was the No. 2 most-streamed series across all audiences, according to Nielsen. Ten new episodes of the series premiered on Disney+ in January and will begin rolling out on Disney Channel and Disney Junior beginning March 25th-April 5th.

Jointly commissioned by ABC Children’s and BBC Studios Kids & Family, Bluey is created and written by Joe Brumm and produced by Ludo Studio in association with Screen Queensland and Screen Australia. The series streams to US and global audiences (outside of Australia, New Zealand and China) across Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney+ through a global broadcasting deal between BBC Studios Kids & Family and Disney Branded Television.
