NEW YORK, Oct. 11 (UPI) -- Nickelodeon and Silvergate Media have announced they ordered a second season of the animated British preschool series, "Peter Rabbit."

Season 2 will consist of 26 episodes and two half-hour specials.

The show is based on the characters created by Beatrix Potter in her classic children's series "The Tales of Peter Rabbit."

A new episode of Peter Rabbit, "The Tale of the Giant Pumpkin/The Tale of the Fierce Bad Rabbit," is to premiere Oct. 25.

"Peter Rabbit has captured the hearts of preschoolers and parents because of the series' rich stories, loveable characters and stunning animation," Teri Weiss, executive vice president of production and development for Nickelodeon Preschool, said in a statement Friday. "We are excited about continuing our partnership with Silvergate Media on creating this dynamic series that champions determination, discovery and being a good friend."

"We are very pleased to be working with Nickelodeon to develop Season 2 of the new 'Peter Rabbit.' Nickelodeon is a fantastic partner and we look forward to continuing the journey of Peter Rabbit with them," said Mary Durkan, chief executive officer of Silvergate Media.
