Season 3 Comes to Germany

17 May 2018

Ink Media together with Animaccord have signed a deal that will see season 3 of Masha and the Bear screen across Germany on KIKA.


The brand new season will debut on KIKA – a national, free-to-air children’s channel - on June 18th at a kids prime-time slot of 6.00pm and then screen daily at that time, with two episodes back-on-back.


KIKA is the latest major channel to snap up the third season of Masha and the Bear. These include HBO Europe (all Central Europe and Spain), Minimax, Czeszka TV, TVP Poland, NBCUNI France, Telequebec, France TV, Canal Plus France, KIKA, De Agostini Kid, RTS Switzerland, and Tiny Pop and Cartoonito in the UK.


The infectiously funny tales of a little girl and her reluctant bear friend are now broadcast in almost every country in the world - via both pay and free-to-air channels. The show has also spawned two hit spin-offs - Masha’s Tales and Masha’s Spooky Stories – and is a huge YouTube hit. In addition, Masha and the Bear has enjoyed a successful theatrical release across key European markets.


“Season 3 of Masha and the Bear is spreading across the world and adding to the huge presence of this phenomenally successful franchise,” says INK Group Managing Partner, Claus Tømming. “I’m sure KIKA will do a great job of promoting the show and millions of kids – and adults – across Germany will be very excited come June 18th!”


“Masha and the Bear is a major hit on KiKA, not only for the kids target group but for an all family audience as well. We are happy to be able showing season 3 of this famous animation series”, says Sebastian Debertin, Head of Acquisitions & Co-Productions at KiKA.
