Nickelodeon announced today that it has greenlit a 20-episode second season of its new hit animated series It’s Pony, which follows the comedic adventures of Annie and her best friend, who just so happens to be an enthusiastic, impulsive and carefree pony.
The series stars Jessica DiCicco (Adventure Time) as Annie, an optimistic and determined farm girl living in the city with her family and best friend Pony; Josh Zuckerman (Strange Angel) as Pony, who is naïve and impulsive, but loves Annie more than anything; Abe Benrubi (E.R.) as Dad, who treats Pony as a nuisance, but recognizes the special bond he shares with Annie; and India de Beaufort (All Hail King Julien) as Mom, who loves Annie and Pony’s relationship and always has a new prank in the works.
Created by Ant Blades, It’s Pony is inspired by a short from Nickelodeon’s 2015 International Animated Shorts Program. It is currently one of the top three animated series with kids two to 11 across all TV, only behind Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants and The Loud House. The premiere of It’s Pony on 18 January 2020 was Nickelodeon’s highest-rated animation launch since 2018.
