According to Deadline, the news comes as the original creators of the show - animation studio Astley Baker Davies (ABD) - are stepping back, with UK studio Karrot taking over and producing the new episodes.

Over the course of six years, the 104 new eps will be broadcast all over the world, with the music, style and voiceovers remaining the same.

Added to that, animators from ABD will move over to Karrot, including head writer Phill Hall, who has worked on the show for 14 years. However, Neville Astley, Mark Baker, and Phil Davies, who launched Peppa Pig will no longer be involved.

"Peppa Pig has been a huge part of our lives. It's a source of great pride that it's given joy to so many children for so many years," they said.

"Peppa will always be close to our hearts and we couldn't be more pleased to be passing the torch to the extraordinarily talented team of artists at Karrot."

Meanwhile, ABD added: "We decided that now is time for us to give ourselves the space to work on other projects without the day-to-day of producing Peppa."

Peppa Pig first arrived on our screens back in 2004 and has been a firm family favourite ever since.

Last year, Peppa Pig star Harley Bird announced she was quitting the TV show after voicing the children's cartoon character since the age of five.

After over a decade in the role, she decided it was finally time to move on and "start another chapter" in her life.

"Becoming the voice of Peppa Pig at the age of five was the start of an incredible journey, and I'll never forget my time on the show," she said.

"The people that work on Peppa Pig have become like a family to me and they've given me some unforgettable memories".
