This September, Shaun, Bitzer, The Farmer and the rest of the flock are back for another 20 episodes of more outrageous behaviour, sheepish shenanigans and panic in the pasture on CBBC.

This series, viewers will get the chance to meet a number of new visitors at Mossy Bottom Farm, as the gang are joined by lazy farmhands, rock stars, troublesome moles and hedgehogs and even escaped convicts!

In this side-splitting new series, viewers will see Bitzer reconnecting with his inner-dog, the pigs adopting a far more sophisticated persona and Shaun discovering the importance of a good hairstyle.

With the series seen in 170 territories and a recent hit movie ‘Shaun the Sheep’ remains a firm favourite with families all over the world, and series five promises to bring further fun, mischief and hilarity to its audiences’

Will Becher, Shaun the Sheep Series Director, Aardman said; “Having just finished shooting on the Shaun feature film, Shaun 5 was our most ambitious series yet. Teaming up with Aardman Oscar® winner Steve Box (Creative Director) and Lee Wilton (Co-director), we fused together a blend of crazy new storylines and epic adventures. Look out for a host of new characters including the tiniest inhabitant of Mossy bottom farm, Shelly the Snail!”
