Peyo Productions Partners with KiKA for New Smurfs TV Series


Peyo Productions has recently entered into a partnership with KiKA, which will bring about a new The Smurfs TV series. KiKA is coming on board as a co-producer and German broadcaster for the 3D CG series. Other co-production partners include TF1 (France), KETNET and OUFTIVI (Belgium).

Véronique Culliford, president & founder of Peyo Productions and distribution company I.M.P.S. ( and Peyo’s daughter), said: “I’m very happy to once again be able to continue my father’s work by co-producing a new TV series about The Smurfs, almost 40 years after the universally known series. You will discover Smurfs in 3D CGI, as in the last movie (The Lost Village, 2017), with lots of fun, humor and adventures full of twists. I’m convinced that for this co-production, KiKA is the best player in the market, and that the Smurfs will continue to delight all generations for decades in Germany!”

“The Smurfs’ are absolutely cult! They are a highlight and an animated classic in the comic and animation culture of the last decades in Europe and of course well known in Germany. And so I’m really excited to be able to present ‘Die Schlümpfe’ exclusively to our viewers from 2021 on,” said Dr. Astrid Plenk, Managing and Programming Director of KiKA – the Children’s Channel of ARD and ZDF.
