Some exciting news here at CBeebies today – Teletubbies will be returning to the channel with a brand new series! The new episodes will feature the same well-loved characters and styling but will be visually enhanced, bringing a refreshed and contemporary look and feel to one of the world’s most well-known pre-school shows.
Kay Benbow, CBeebies channel controller said: "Teletubbies is an enduringly popular series with our youngest viewers, although no new episodes have been made for over ten years. I think that now is the right time to create new episodes of this much-loved, iconic show for the current CBeebies audience. I'm sure they will delight in the activities of Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa Laa and Po, in the same way that children and parents did when they first appeared on our screens."
Filming hasn’t started on the new series yet, so it will be a while before it hits our screens, but we’ll keep you posted as soon as we have any more news on our social media channels: facebook.com/cbeebies or @CBeebiesHQ
