The baby bears have amassed a large international fan base after appearing in several episodes of We Bare Bears and the untitled spinoff series will explore fresh and fun stories with the show’s most beloved characters.

Premiered in 2015, We Bare Bears has earned numerous awards since its debut, including a BAFTA Children’s Award, a Jury Award for Best TV Series at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival and several Annie Awards. Fans around the world, most notably in the APAC region, have embraced the show for its portrayal of Asian pop culture.
