Nickelodeon Orders 'Corn & Peg' Season 2

Nickelodeon has greenlit a second season of the network's popular animated preschool series, Corn & Peg! Produced by Nelvana Studios in association with Nickelodeon Productions, Corn & Peg season two will contain 40 x 11-minutes.

The series launched on Nickelodeon in the U.S. and Corus' Treehouse in Canada in March 2019. The show sees a young unicorn and pegasus strive to make their community a better place. The first season is launching on the kidcaster’s international channels and branded blocks throughout 2019.

Update (8/17) - Actor Kyle Breitkopf, who voices the titular character on Nickelodeon's popular CG-animated preschool series Rusty Rivets, has revealed in a post on Instagram that he'll be voicing a new character on Corn & Peg! Kyle's credits also includes roles on Mutt & Stuff, PJ Masks, Wonder, Sigmund and the Sea Monsters (reboot), Odd Squad, and his own webseries, Getting Kandid with Kyle.

Canada’s Corus Entertainment, which owns Nelvana, first announced Corn & Peg in its 2018/19 lineup of kids content. Also on the lineup is the production company's new live-action preschool series Miss Persona (52 x three minutes). Debuting in October, the series is about a young lady who solves problems through imaginative dress-up roleplay.

Corus released the slate last summer after reporting in its 2018 Q1 financials that Nelvana drove a 24% lift in revenue for the company’s kids content business.
