'The Smurfs' Season 3 Currently in Development

A third season of the hit animated CG-animated series The Smurfs is currently in development, with season two slated to start airing in the fourth quarter of 2022!

Speaking to TVKIDS, Nele de Wilde, head of sales, production and business development, audiovisual and music at I.M.P.S., an official licensor of the iconic brand, said "[the series] is aimed at kids 5 to 10, and more generally at the whole family, with parents who will feel the nostalgia of their childhood.”

“Season two of our widely popular new The Smurfs TV series is set to start airing in Q4 of this year, and season three is currently in development,” she adds.

The company is also presenting the classic The Smurfs series from the ’80s to buyers, produced by Hanna-Barbera and remastered in HD.

Nickelodeon, LAFIG Belgium and IMPS announced a second season (26 episodes) pickup of the original CG-animated The Smurfs television series earlier this year. The all-new season will continue to follow the Smurfs on a variety of adventures, including time traveling, inventing a magic camera, accidental body swapping, and more. No release date was shared.

Season two of The Smurfs will introduce two new characters: Wild Smurf, who lives outside the village, in the heart of the forest,; and Leaf, a fairy destined to replace Mother Nature who is younger than we might expect, and a little bit flighty.

Nickelodeon Animation and Paramount Pictures also announced at the same time that they have formed a deal with LAFIG Belgium and IMPS to produce multiple feature films based on The Smurfs, the iconic characters and stories created by Belgian artist Pierre Culliford, also known as Peyo. The first project under the new partnership is an animated musical feature film set to begin production in 2022 with a planned release on December 20, 2024.
