According to a recent announcement, Tiger Aspect Productions is producing the third season of Mr. Bean: The Animated Series, which is slated to air on CiTV in the UK in 2019, followed by an international rollout via Boomerang and other Turner Kids channels. The deals were inked with Tiger Aspect Productions’ mother company, Endemol Shine International.
Mr. Bean: The Animated Series is the cartoon adaptation of the 90s live-action comedy sitcom co-created and starred in by comedian Rowan Atkinson. Atkinson will be lending his voice to the animated version, and will continue to be involved in the show’s creative direction. The 3rd season will consist of 26 x 11 episodes and will follow Mr. Bean and Teddy embark on new adventures, while meeting new friends and engaging in all sorts of mischief along the way.
“We are extremely excited to be starting the third animated series of Mr. Bean. The global and enduring appeal of the character continues to grow and grow, and we are very happy to continue to help more and more children and families discover the unique source of comedy and joy that is Mr Bean,” said Tiger Aspect MD Ben Cavey.
“We’re excited that Mr. Bean will be expanding his presence on CITV,” said Darren Nartey, Program Acquisitions Executive for ITV. “He is an iconic British character who resonates with our audience, and they will be delighted to see more of his antics.”
