Calvin Millan, the star of Nickelodeon's popular preschool series Mutt & Stuff, has announced the unfortunate news to a fan on Instagram that Mutt & Stuff is wrapping production, with Nickelodeon USA planning to air the series finale later this year.
Cesar Millan, Calvin Millan and Stuff, stars of Nickelodeon's live-action preschool series, Mutt & Stuff.
Calvin reassured fans that it was Sid & Marty Krofft's decision to end the show after 73 episodes over two seasons, so that they could concentrate on the production on their Sigmund and the Sea Monsters reboot, which was recently picked up by Amazon Studios, and that the production schedules for both shows didn't reflect on one another.
Set in a unique school for dogs, Mutt & Stuff stars Calvin Millan and his dad, Cesar, star of Cesar 911 and original star of Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan, interacting with a cast of both real Dogs and puppets. With the help of 15 playful puppies and charismatic puppets, Calvin educates preschoolers on how to train and guide their dogs, as well as showcase the friendship and loyalty that puppies can provide. The series has a social-emotional curriculum that helps preschoolers identify and manage emotions, build interpersonal awareness and develop social skills.
Nickelodeon ordered 13 additional episodes of the series ahead of the shows second season premiere on Friday 19th August 2016.
Mutt & Stuff is created and executive produced by Sid & Marty Krofft (H.R. Pufnstuf, Land Of The Lost), along with Bradley Zweig (Yo Gabba Gabba!, Wallykazam!). Cesar Millan also serves as executive producer.
