Fans of the Odd Squad will be thrilled to hear that PBS KIDS announced a new Odd Squad movie that premiers on January 21.
Odd Squad: Odds and Ends will feature agents Olympia, Otis, Ms. O and Oona on the case to solve a string of break-ins at headquarters. When Olympia accidentally exposes a deep secret about Otis’ past, it sets off a series of events with the potential to unravel the entire agency.
The movie will air on PBS stations’ primary channels and on the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel (check local listings). Odd Squad: Odds and Ends will also be available to stream for free starting January 21 on pbskids.org and the PBS KIDS Video App, which is accessible on a variety of mobile devices and platforms.
“Since its premiere, Odd Squad has been a family favorite with its smart and funny approach to learning,” said Linda Simensky, Vice President, Children’s Programming, PBS. Each month, Odd Squad reaches 9.3 million viewers on-air*, and averages 17.8 million streams digitally**. Research has shown that Odd Squad positively impacts children’s math skills, including concepts such as algebraic thinking, as well as increased knowledge in numbers and operations.
Odd Squad is created by Tim McKeon (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Adventure Time, The Electric Company) and Adam Peltzman (The Electric Company, The Backyardigans, Wallykazam!), and produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment and Fred Rogers Productions.
