28 min Bluey special coming in 2024

“The Biggest Little Show in the World is getting bigger," says ABC.

Last week ABC announced a 28-minute Bluey special episode to premieres in 2024.

‘The Sign’ is an extra-long episode of the global TV hit show penned by creator and writer, Joe Brumm, directed by Richard Jeffery, and produced by Ludo Studio.

“We’re so excited to share that a 28-minute special episode is coming in 2024. There’ll be lots of laughs, exciting guest voices, and definitely a few tears. We’re so incredibly proud of the awesome team behind the series and we can’t wait for Australia and the world to watch this very special Bluey episode with their family and friends,” said Ludo Studio.

“The Biggest Little Show in the World is getting bigger. Joe Brumm and the Ludo team have knocked it out of the park with this special episode. The fans are at the heart of this idea – we knew they were wanting more, and we’re thrilled to be able to deliver. This might be the most anticipated premiere in 2024!” said Libbie Doherty, Head of ABC Children & Family and Executive Producer.

“This extended episode allows room to explore the world, characters and breadth of Bluey even further. Existing fans will love it and it will be a great introduction to this incredible show for new audiences,” said Henrietta Hurford-Jones, Commissioner & Executive Producer of Bluey for BBC Studios Kids & Family.

A teaser is available on iview.

Following its world premiere on ABC, the  special will air globally on Disney+.

  1. It’s almost surprising that the show hasn’t already been extended to a half-hour format, with the occasional longer story, but they could just as easily split each episode into two half-length segments like other shows did back in the day (Rugrats springs to mind).

    I also suspect that there’ll be a feature film at some point. Finally an Aussie export to knock Crocodile Dundee off his perch? How simultaneously sad and delightful it would be for Bluey to have that honour after four decades of mostly underwhelming Aussie cinema.
