These episodes will not disappoint families, with episodes such as the excellent ‘Tradies’ and others. And viewers will love the return of the Grannies in Granny Mobile.”
The new episodes include cameos from well-known Bluey fans, including Lin-Manuel Miranda, who appears as a talking horse in the episode “Stories,” and Rose Byrne, who plays Chilli’s sister Brandy in “Onesies.” Jointly commissioned by BBC Studios Kids & Family and ABC Children’s, "Bluey" is produced by multi-Emmy® Award-winning Ludo Studio in association with Screen Queensland and Screen Australia. The series is distributed internationally by BBC Studios Kids & Family outside Australia.

Created and written by Joe Brumm and produced by the multiple Emmy® Award-winning Ludo Studio for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and BBC Studios Kids & Family, "Bluey" follows the adventures of a lovable and inexhaustible Blue Heeler puppy who lives with her Dad, Mum and little sister, Bingo.
