eone’s Ricky Zoom Season 2 Ready for Launch
Entertainment One (eOne), Hasbro’s global entertainment studio, is gearing up for the debut of Ricky Zoom season 2 through ViacomCBS Networks UK, Nick Jr. and Channel 5’s multiplatform pre-school brand, Milkshake!. The CGI animated series follows Ricky, a speed-loving, adventure-seeking, little red rescue bike who loves to zoom around Wheelford, the only two-wheeled world on TV!
“We are thrilled to bring Ricky Zoom back to the #1 channel for pre-schoolers in the UK with Milkshake! and Nick Jr.” said eOne’s Monica Candiani, EVP, Content Sales, Family & Brands. “The show has had such strong success in the UK among young viewers, allowing us to secure a number of licensing partners across a variety of categories. We can’t wait for audiences to watch season 2, which I am sure will deliver even more exciting all-bike adventures in the colourful world of Wheelford.”
“We’re delighted to be welcoming back Ricky Zoom and his two-wheeled friends on Nick Jr. in June and and Milkshake! later in the year in the UK. It’s a fun and playful show which is a favourite amongst pre-schoolers, and we look forward to sharing their new adventures with our young viewers” commented Louise Bucknole, VP Programming Kids, ViacomCBS Network UK & Ireland.

Joining master toy partner TOMY are Penguin (story, activity, novelty books); Redan (magazines); Character World (bedding); MV Sports (wheeled toys); Ravensburger (puzzles and games); Cooneen (nightwear & socks); Blues (daywear); and Drew Pearson (accessories).
