PBS KIDS AND FRED ROGERS PRODUCTIONS TO DEBUT NEW SEASON AND FIRST PODCAST FROM ODD SQUAD

PBS KIDS and Fred Rogers Productions have announced the premiere of a new season of family-favorite and multiple Emmy Award-winning series ODD SQUAD. Produced by Fred Rogers Productions and Sinking Ship Entertainment, the third iteration of the series will launch on PBS stations, the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel and PBS KIDS digital platforms on February 17, 2020.

Featuring 20 new half-hour episodes, this season of the popular live-action show will take viewers along on adventures all around the world, as Odd Squad hits the road in a Mobile Unit for the first time. The upcoming season will introduce an all-new cast of four intrepid agents—Opal (Valentina Herrera), Omar (Jayce Alexander), Oswald (Gavin MacIver-Wright - Heartland, Sesame Street), and Orla (Alyssa Hidalgo -“Got Milk” campaign) — who will travel together in their custom-outfitted Odd Squad van to tackle oddness wherever they find it. The agents will report back to Ms. O (Millie Davis - Orphan Black), who has been promoted to “The Big O” in the new season. As they travel from New York City to Pittsburgh, Australia to Zambia, and beyond, the agents encounter a range of mysterious characters, including the villainous Sand Queen, played by Academy Award-nominated actress Toni Collette.

In the summer of 2020, fans will get the chance to listen in to the first-ever ODD SQUAD podcast. Odd Squadcast is a serialized podcast that follows “The Big O” as she hosts a weekly radio address for agents all over the world – while simultaneously trying to stop an odd invasion of headquarters. In addition, a new season of OddTube, the digital short-form ODD SQUAD spin-off that debuted its  First season wtth Agent Olympia wth Agent Olympia (Anna Cathcart), will now be hosted by Agent Orla and is set to go live in Fall 2020.

Odd Squad has consistently been one of the most streamed programs across PBS KIDS digital platforms, averaging more than 25 million streams per month.* ODD SQUAD airs daily on PBS stations (check local listings), the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel, and streams on pbskids.org and the free PBS KIDS Video app.
