Blue and small, and standing only three apples tall. In some Smurf-tacular news, The Smurfs are making their way to a new village, which will see their debut on Nickelodeon in an all-new series premiering at 4pm on Monday, 20 September and streaming on Paramount+ from Saturday, 25 September.

The original series marks the return of the globally renowned characters to television for the first time in nearly 40 years and follows Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Brainy, Hefty, Clumsy and the other inhabitants of Smurf Village on all-new adventures, packed with humour, heart and high-stakes action. In the premiere episode Smurf-Fu, when Smurfette rescues Brainy from a giant snake, the other Smurfs ask her to teach them Smurf-Fu and next in, Diaper Daddy, when everyone is tired of changing Baby’s diapers, Handy decides to invent a robot that will do the job.
