Disney Junior has renewed three shows. The cable network, which aims its programming at preschoolers, picked up third seasons of “Sofia the First” and “Doc McStuffins” and a fourth season of “Jake and the Never Land Pirates," Deadline.com reports.
All three shows ranked among the top cable series for kids 2-5 last year, and in the top 10 preschooler cable TV series in total viewers and with women 18-49, the story notes.
“Sofia the First,” about a little princess, has been performing especially well in the ratings, with its special last month ranking as the second-most-watched telecast with kids 2-5 in cable TV history, the piece notes.
In addition to Disney Junior, all three shows air on Disney Channel. All three have received attention from the Annie Awards, presented by the Hollywood branch of the International Animated Film Association.
