Nickelodeon International Acquires 'ALVINNN!!! and the Chipmunks' Season 5

Nickelodeon International (including the US but excluding Brazil), Family Channel (Canada) and Télé-Québec (French-speaking Canada) have all ordered a fifth season of the hit animated series ALVINNN!!! and the Chipmunks!


California’s Bagdasarian Productions and French studio Technicolor Animation produce the series, with Paris-based distributor PGS representing the distribution rights worldwide, excluding France.

Production on a new batch of 52 x 11-minute episodes starts next month, with writing, producing and directing shared between the two co-producers.

Existing seasons of the series currently air on Nickelodeon channels worldwide, on SVOD service Hulu, and on international broadcasters such as M6 (France), Gloob (Brazil), Super RTL (Germany), RTBF/OufTIVI (Belgium), RTS (Switzerland) and K2 (Italy). Originally created in 1958, the property is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.

In addition to the media rights, PGS Entertainment also holds the international licensing and merchandising rights for ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks, excluding the U.S. and France.

Presented in CGI-animation, the classic comedy toon reflects the trials and tribulations of a single parent, David Seville, trying to raise six hyper-active Chipmunks - Alvin, Simon and Theodore and the Chippettes, Brittany, Eleanor and Jeanette. Like most parents, Dave’s patience will be pushed to the limit, forcing him to end most sentences in “ALVINNN!!!” The series takes viewers on a roller coaster ride of music, laughter and stories geared to entertain the Chipmunks’ four generations of fans and features a new, original Chipmunk song in every episode. The show is an energetic mix of music, comedy and stories aimed at entertaining Chipmunks fans of all ages.

Originally created in 1958, the property is celebrating its landmark 60th anniversary this year.


ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks season four is slated to be delivered to the show's broadcasters partners in May 2020. The new deal means the series is now guaranteed to be on-air with new episodes until at least 2022.

Janice Karman and her husband, Ross Bagdasarian, are the owners of the Chipmunks franchise and producers of the previous 80s hit TV series and the four blockbuster Chipmunk movies.
