The Octonauts are an eight-member team of courageous underwater explorers who dive into action whenever there is trouble under the sea. They help save aquatic creatures in need of assistance with four seasons of Octonauts on Netflix.

Now, the team is heading out of the water to help land animals in a new spin-off series from Silvergate Media. In Octonauts: Above & Beyond, the squad will respond to new dangers across our ever-changing planet with a mission to explore harsh and remote environments, rescue animals that need their help, and protect the land and all living creatures. Season one will debut globally on Sept. 7 on Netflix, with a second season planned for next year.

Characters Barnacles, Kwazii, Peso, and Dashi will return, along with new hero Paani, an expert on all the Earth’s waterways. An extended team of Octo-agents from around the world will also join in to assist the Octonauts on various missions. The spin-off features a new mobile HQ — the Octoray — and a new fleet of land-based vehicles — the Terra Gups — that can climb mountains, dig tunnels, sail over sand dunes, and navigate dense jungles.

Moose Toys is getting in on the Octonauts action as the global toy partner for the brand. Fans can expect a full range of Octonauts toys coming to market in June, including figures, vehicles, playsets, plush toys, and more.
