Peppa Pig’s quest for world dominance moved a step closer after Entertainment One revealed plans to make another 117 episodes of the hit cartoon.

Production is under way on the new episodes which are expected to be aired globally from spring 2019, securing the future of a show which has been wildly popular with young children for more than a decade.

It takes the total number of shows to 381, and creates a four-year pipeline of new adventures for Peppa, along with her family and friends.

Darren Throop, the chief executive of Entertainment One, said the new episodes would contribute to the long-term success of “this global pre-school phenomenon”.

“Peppa Pig’s global appeal continues apace as we bring new content to audiences across the world,” he added.

The show’s animation studio, Astley Baker Davies, will be producing the new series.

Entertainment One also announced licensing agreements which will see new Peppa Pig toys and merchandise launched in Brazil and Russia.

The cheeky piglet is already a pre-school favourite in homes in the UK, Australia, the US, Spain, Italy, France, Latin America and south-east Asia. In China, Peppa Pig has been watched more than 24.5bn times on streaming and on-demand services since the brand was first launched two years ago.
