At the same time that Sprout announced the renewal of Lazy Town for season three, it also announced that The Chica Show is renewed for a second season targeted at a late July premiere.

The Chica Show Season 2– Preschoolers’ favorite new series kicks off on July 29 with Chica and her friends. Season Two brings Chica to lots of new adventures including Fashion Fun, Starstruck Dreams and a Dinosaur Romp. The Chica Show is a mix of live action and animation that follows the imaginative adventures of Chica and her cast of friends including Stitches (voiced by Mario Lopez), Kelly (who loves to laugh, sing and play while she works with Chica in the Costume Coop) and Bunji (a sweet, fluffy, lionhead rabbit that takes charge as a hilarious leader with an infectious laugh when he becomes animated). The show offers parents teachable moments for preschoolers – whether it’s going undersea to learn more about clean-up time, embarking on a voyage with Vikings to discover why manners are important, or even jetting off to a rock concert to discover why practice makes perfect.
