Creator and executive producer Alison Hume, (BAFTA winning writer for CBBC’s Summerhill), says; “We’ve cooked up a brand new mystery with lots more adventures to keep our audience on the edge of their seats and their imaginations fizzing. Plus there’s lots of fun too as the children exercise their freedom in a World Without Adults.”
Director and executive producer Jon East, (BAFTA winning director for CBBC’s That Summer Day), says, “It’s great to be revisiting the world of The Sparticle Mystery. Children love the sense of empowerment and genuine responsibility that this fantasy yields and this time around we’ve really upped the ante. The world’s adults are by now long gone and we see how children might reconfigure the world if left in charge...”
The new series of The Sparticle Mystery is expected to air on CBBC in early 2013.
