The Deep 12Dec2018
The programme follows the adventures of the Nekton family—a brilliant team of underwater explorers. With state-of-the-art technology and an unquenchable thirst for discovery, the Nektons explore the mysterious depths of the ocean, where most of our world lies unexplored and unexplained. In season three, the Nektons are back and the Monumentials—huge creatures capable of changing the world—are waking from their long slumber. To put the giants back to sleep, Ant, Fontaine, Will and Kaiko must find the ancient city of Lemuria and harness its secret.

New deals for season three, which was commissioned by ABC Australia earlier this year, have been struck with CBBC (UK), Super RTL (Germany), VRT (Belgium), NRK (Norway), KidsZone(Baltics), S4C (UK and Wales), SVT (Sweden), and TVP (Poland), in addition to previously announced deals with Netflix (worldwide) and Family CHRGD (Canada). DHX Media has also signed two new distribution deals for seasons one and two of The Deep, with France Télévisions (France) and RTP (Portugal).

“From the moment it premiered, The Deep has resonated with kids and families for its wonderful animation and strong storytelling,” said Jerry Diaz, VP Distribution, DHX Media. “The series continues to generate strong sales into markets around the world, and the talented creative team behind The Deep have done an amazing job on season three, delivering a great new set of adventures for broadcasters and streaming platforms to share with audiences.”
