Katie Morag to return for second series

Katie Morag will return for a second series airing on both CBeebies and CBBC - the first time the two channels have co-commissioned a series.
This second series will see some episodes shown exclusively on CBeebies allowing the current audience to enjoy more adventures from Katie Morag McColl, while other episodes will be shown on CBBC allowing the series to explore slightly more complex storylines and themes aimed at the CBBC audience.

Katie Morag stars 8 year old Cherry Campbell as the feisty red-headed girl who lives with her family on the magical island of Struay.  Based on the hugely popular series of books by Mairi Hedderwick, the stories celebrate the intrinsic sense of community, the preciousness of the environment and the universal tensions and joys of family life.

The first series of Katie Morag won the RTS Scotland Children’s Award at the inaugural RTS Scotland awards ceremony last week.

The second series (12x15mins and 1x30mins) will be filmed over the summer on the Isle of Lewis using both studio facilities on the island as well as the backdrop of the beautiful Hebridean landscape.
