Aardman Animation’s latest Shaun the Sheep series is to launch on Netflix later this month.

The series has traditionally made its home on the BBC in the UK, on the CBBC channel
The sixth series is using more cinematic production values following up on the success of A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon, according to series director Tom Parkinson.
Parkinson said: “We started shooting Shaun the Sheep: Adventures from Mossy Bottom as we wrapped on our most recent feature, A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon and so inherited much of its more cinematic visual style. We also made a conscious decision to write more dramatic storylines. Adventures from Mossy Bottom aims to bridge the gap between the simple storytelling of the earlier series and this larger scale filmic stuff… with these new episodes you’re almost getting 20 mini movies! Add to this a number of new characters and I think we have given the show a fresh new feel.”
Shaun the Sheep: Adventures from Mossy Bottom introduces four new characters: Stash, a hyperactive squirrel, ‘no nonsense’ Rita who delivers the parcels and new rival Farmer Ben, and his Afghan hound, Lexi.
Shaun the Sheep: Series six will also have its premiere on the following linear broadcasters: WDR Germany, NHK Japan,WarnerMedia’s Boomerang & Cartoon Network platforms Southeast Asia & Taiwan, RAI Italy, SVT Sweden, YLE Finland, FRANCE TV France, NRK Norway, NPO Netherlands, Ceska TV Czech Republic, Canal PANDA Portugal, Knowledge Network Canada, Télé-Québec Canada, Children’s edutainment channel MBC3 MENA and TV3 Catalonia
