PAW Patrol to Take Over Nick Jr. Too UK in September 2019

The PAW Patrol is on a roll, and this September, will be leaping onto Nick Jr. Too for Nick Jr. UK & Ireland's first-ever PAW Patrol pop-up channel!


Beginning Sunday 1st September 2019, the PAW Patrol will be bringing fans non-stop action and ruff-ruff rescues in back-to-back episodes of Nick Jr.'s massively popular animated preschool series PAW Patrol all day everyday between 6:00am-12:00am for one PAWSOME month! Viewers will also be able to catch brand-new adventures, including the all-new PAW Patrol: Mighty Pups, Super Paws special "Pups Meet the Mighty Twins"!

Currently in its sixth season, PAW Patrol follows a pack of heroic rescue pups—Chase, Marshall, Rubble, Skye, Rocky, Zuma, Everest and Tracker—who are led by a tech-savvy boy named Ryder. Together, they work hard to show the people of Adventure Bay that “no job is too big, no pup is too small!” The series features a curriculum that focuses on citizenship, social skills and problem-solving. The CG-animated series is produced by Spin Master Entertainment (Abby Hatcher)

Paw Patrol has been the No. 1 pre-school property in the UK since 2016, the No. 1 programme for ratings across Nick Jr. and Milkshake!, and the most visited page on the Nick Jr. site, nickjr.co.uk.

Nick Jr.'s first-ever channel dedicated to PAW Patrol is testament to the property’s popularity and ability to increase network strength during the back to school months, which will also see a new range of Mighty Pups consumer products hit shelves, including plush, vehicles and a new lookout tower to go with the new superhero-themed content on the channel.

Nick Jr. PAW Patrol follows a summer full of PAW Patrol activities take place around the UK, including PAWSOME SUMMER super fan initiative on Nick Jr., a PAW Patrol Roadshow tour of intu shopping centres across the country, and the launch of a PAW Patrol-themed Bricklive experience.

The UK premiere of the Bricklive Paw Patrol tour, the first show under a partnership with Viacom Inc-owned children's television channel Nickelodeon, will take place in Blackburn, Lancashire between August 23 and September 1.

This summer has seen the Paw Patrol Little Heroes Awards return for a second year. The consumer awards campaign driven by Spin Master aims to honour little heroes across the country who have overcome adversity, shown outstanding bravery or gone above and beyond for a friend in need. Submissions are open now http://pawawards.co.uk/.

Looking ahead, Nickelodeon UK will open its second UK-based attraction, Nickelodeon Adventure, later this year in partnership with intu Lakeside and Parques Rieundas.

2020 will see Ready Race Rescue themed content roll-out. In Paw Patrol: Ready Race Rescue, it’s the ADVENTURE BAY 500! The pups have built an awesome race track and are ready to be the pit crew for their race hero, THE WHOOSH! But when the legendary racer is unable to drive in the CHAMPIONSHIP RACE, he calls on his biggest fan-pup MARSHALL to take the wheel and race in his place! Marshall has to overcome his lack of confidence and his dastardly competition, THE CHEETAH, to fulfill his dream of becoming the FASTEST race-pup EVER! Get ready to race and rescue!

Nickelodeon recently renewed PAW Patrol for a seventh season of 26 half-hour episodes, and PAW Patrol feature film is also in development.
