Scholastic Entertainment has announced plans for a re-launch of the Emmy-winning preschool animated series “Clifford the Big Red Dog” to air on Amazon Prime Video and PBS KIDS from Fall 2019.
Based on the best-selling book series by Norman Bridwell, the story follows the larger-than-life dog and his best friend Emily Elizabeth. The new series will still be set on Birdwell Island, but the reboot will offer fresh and colorful new locations.
The series will also have a strong emphasis on social-emotional skills such as empathy, along with a solid curriculum designed to boost early literacy and encourage imaginative play. The series is currently in production for 39 episodes.
