Wizards Vs. Aliens - Series 3 Confirmed

It might have taken them a while but it seems that the CBBC have finally confirmed that a third series of Wizards Vs. Aliens is currently in production.

According the press release ....

In this brand-new series, the pace steps up as Tom and Benny come face to face with a new alien race and a whole variety of magical creatures. Meanwhile, Varg has a new wife by his side, but the mysterious Lady Lyzera has a secret of her own…

Controller of CBBC, Cheryl Taylor, said: “CBBC is the home of thrilling and inspiring drama for children and Wizards Vs Aliens is a perfect example of that. The series is vivid and brave and our audience loves the portrayal of loyal friendship alongside exciting alien battles and stunning wizardry. Children want to talk about Tom, Benny and the Nekross and we know they’ll be delighted to hear a third series is being conjured up by the talented team in Wales.”

I like that we're getting some new aliens and Varg's wife certainly sounds like an interesting character but I am a little surprised they didn't mention how many episodes it's coming back for though. However, it's good news the show is returning and it's nice that they're adding more into the mix as well.

Press Release:

Production for Wizards Vs. Aliens Series 3 begins next month with an airdate scheduled for 2014/2015.

I've only seen the first episode of this show (and I saw it On Demand), because The Hub picked it up over here in America and then dropped it after "Grazlax Attacks". I wish BBC America would pick it up.
