The Viacom-owned kids net acquired the first season of the DHX Media-distributed show, and has now picked up an additional 30 half-hour eps, which it will put out on its Nick Jr. preschool channel later this year.
DHX and UK prodco Darrall Macqueen produce the new series, which was commissioned by CBeebies in the UK and launched last year.
DHX owns the Teletubbies brand after acquiring the library of Ragdoll, the UK indie that created the show.
Josh Scherba, senior VP Distribution of DHX Media, said: “With all the recognisable favourites as well as new features, the second season is a real treat for audiences both in the US on Nick Jr., and the UK where it will premiere exclusively on CBeebies.”
