Meanwhile, a producer of the wildly-popular Australian cartoon has revealed the fate of the show.

Executive producer Daley Pearson spoke to Sunrise on Friday morning and revealed: ‘For the last bit of time it’s just been this half-hour episode we’ve been working on, but we will be making more Bluey.’

‘It’s been a concentration on this half-hour ep. We’ll see where it goes. I think when we have taken risks, that’s when it’s been the most exciting and I think that’s when the audience has liked it the most as well,’ he continued.
