Turner Broadcasting has recently greenlit a third season of the critically acclaimed animated series The Amazing World of Gumball, which was originally premiered on Turner’s own Cartoon Network Studios Europe. The show, which was created by Ben Bocquelet, is notable for using a hybrid of 2D, 3D, and live action scenery to provide a distinctively surreal look to the episodes.
The 3rd season of The Amazing World of Gumball will bring the total commission to 40 x 11. No specific air dates have been announced, but it is expected that the new season will air in over 160 countries world wide via Cartoon Network.
“The Amazing World of Gumball is a standout series and we are delighted that audiences on Cartoon Network will be able to watch yet more of this engrossing and captivating series,” says Michael Carrington, Chief Content Officer for Turner Broadcasting. “We are proud that our first show from Cartoon Network Studio Europe sits alongside contemporary greats from the U.S. such as Regular Show and Adventure Time, which is a sure-fire reflection of the talented team behind it.”
