Disney has given the go-ahead for more episodes Big City Greens and Molang, the first of which hasn’t even premiered!

Disney’s Big City Greens premieres in the United States on June 18th through Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney Channel VOD. Created by brothers Christopher and Shane Houghton, the fish out of water story follows a country boy named Cricket Green moving to the big city with his family. The duo serve as executive producers on the show alongside Rob Renzetti (Gravity Falls), with Monica Ray (Harvey Beaks) and Natasha Kline (South Park) as directors.

Originally developed for Disney XD, the series stars Chris Houghton as Cricket Green, with Artemis Pebdani as Gramma Alice, Marieve Herington as older sister Tilly and Bob Joles as father Bill. Guest voices include The Jon Hamm, Raven-Symone, Busta Rhymes, Danny Trejo, Lorraine Toussaint, Jim Rash, Paul F. Tompkins, Lauren Lapkus, Andy Daly, Scott Aukerman, Paul Scheer, Zeno Robinson, Colton Dunn and Anna Akana.

Disney is also rolling out the red carpet, with new episodes airing daily from June 18 to 22 as part of Disney Channel’s GO! Summer. After that, premieres will air throughout the summer on Monday and Wednesday mornings at 10 AM. Big City Greens shorts will begin rolling out June 16 on Disney Channel and the Disney Channel YouTube channel. The DisneyNOW app will also unveil the multiplayer game, Big City Battle!

Disney Junior ups Molang

On the younger audience side of things, Disney Junior in the United States will air the third season of Millimages’ Molang animated series later this year. This includes the 9 x seven-minute Christmas and Halloween specials and summer break episodes.

The French non-dialog series about a silly bunny and his friends debuted in 2015. Commissioned for French TV channel Canal+, the show is inspired by a South Korean emoticon and features themes of friendship and happiness. Both the Disney Junior linear channel and the Disney Junior block on Disney Channel have been airing the first 104 x three-minute episodes.

In other international territories, the show can be seen on Tele Quebec (Canada), Disney (Latin America), Disney Junior (select European markets, Latin America, Japan, South-East Asia and Australia), MTV Oy (Finland), NRK (Norway) and Rai Yoyo (Italy). Millimages recently scored a big breakthrough in the Chinese market by landing a number of deals with local streaming platforms.

The show’s success isn’t limited to the screen either. More than 150 licensees have agreed to make Molang products worldwide. That includes a master toy deal in the United States with Jazzwares.
