For real life: ‘Bluey’ creators are going to release a 28-minute episode

Attention Bluey fans young and old. It’s finally happening “for real life.” The official Bluey blog just made an excellent announcement. Grab your spring rolls and buckle up, because in 2024 there will be a 28-minute Bluey episode.

That’s like 4 Chutney Chimp episodes!

Try not to “slip on your beans,” because the website didn’t mention a particular month in 2024 for the release, but we can hardly wait.

Here’s what we know so far. This new long episode title is ‘The Sign,’ and will be written by creator and writer Joe Brumm, and directed by Richard Jeffery—and of course, produced by Ludo studio. Dave McCormack and Melanie Zanetti will reprise their roles as Bandit and Chili, per the website announcement.

You can also watch the teaser on the blog as well, where you’ll find all of your favorite clips from the greatest cartoon dog family of all time celebrating. Though it’s taken from different scenes from the show throughout its five-year run, the sentiment is the same. Everyone is excited about this brand new episode, as evidenced by all the gasping and of course tail-wagging.

“This is the happiest day ever of my life!!!” Bingo exclaims in the video.

“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,” Ludo Studio said in a statement on the website.
