Amazon Studios announced five new pilots for shows aimed at children. The shows are targeted towards children from preschool through age 11.
The company said Monday that the shows will be available early next year. Three of the shows are animated, while two are live action. They will join previously announced pilot Sara Solves It for Amazon’s third pilot season.
As with all Amazon shows, they will be available for free and will be greenlit for series based on customer reviews. The series will be available on Amazon Prime Instant Video and can be viewed online or on Amazon apps on Fire devices, Roku, Apple products and other devices.
Amazon also said that new episodes of three shows will premiere this fall. Tumble Leaf will be back on Sept. 5 and Creative Galaxy comes back on Oct. 3. Annedroids returns on Oct. 30.
