Nickelodeon has picked up one of its original series for another season. The kid-focused channel renewed “Dora the Explorer” spinoff series “Dora and Friends: Into the City!” for season two, the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker reports.
“The companion preschool series, the first season of which launched in August, showed the world-renowned bilingual pipsqueak as a 10-year-old girl. She’s taller, has longer hair, an updated wardrobe and, perhaps more subtly, now has ears and eyebrows. And the curriculum is centered on community service, as well as emotional skills,” the story reports.
The network has ordered 20 episodes for a second season. The first season so far has proved a success, ranking among the top five preschool programs on all TV, the piece notes.
