Get egg-cited for a new comedy-adventure series heading to Disney Junior this spring.

The first season of The Chicken Squad is set to premiere this May on Disney Junior and DisneyNOW. The show will follow three young chicken siblings, Coop, Sweetie, and Little Boo, as they go on numerous adventures solving mysteries and rescuing their friends around their neighborhood. Joined by their rescue dog mentor, Captain Tully, the team will show kids what it means to be a good community helper and find happiness in assisting others.

Season one will kick off with two back-to-back episodes, each featuring two 11-minute stories. If The Chicken Squad sounds familiar, it’s because the series is based on the popular kids’ book series of the same name, written by author Doreen Cronin.
