Baby Shark is the song/phenomenon that just won’t go away. Typically, the things that our kids love and that get stuck on an endless loop in our heads are, thankfully, fleeting.
Not Baby Shark. The song, the video, the dance…it’s been awhile.
And now that it’s also going to be a television show on Nick, Jr. (and now that Nick, Jr. has been added to YouTubeTV), it looks like the whole phenomenon is here to stay.
The show, tentatively titled Baby Shark’s Big Show!, follows Baby Shark and his best friend William on adventures around their home, Carnivore Cove. They meet new friends, and yes, sing new, original, possibly catchy songs.
Ramsey Naito, an Executive Vice President at Nickelodeon, said…
“Having the opportunity to dive deeper into this incredible world and create all-new storylines has been extremely exciting, and our head of preschool Eryk Casemiro and his team can’t wait to help grow the Baby Shark universe and fanbase with an amazing new series that captures the heart and soul of this property.”
The first order is for 26 half-hour episodes. The series will be geared toward preschool-ged kids and will kick off with a holiday-themed episode in December of 2020.
Are you excited to check this out with your kids? Will they be watching it alone?
Will you ban the show and Nick Jr. from your television for daring to bring this song back into your home and your head?
