Amazon Studios has renewed four kids series for second seasons: “Creative Galaxy,” “Annedroids,” “Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street” and “Tumble Leaf” (pictured above).

“’Tumble Leaf,’ ‘Creative Galaxy,’ ‘Annedroids’ and ‘Gortimer’ have all experienced a tremendous response from our customers and we’re excited to bring them back for another season,” Tara Sorensen, head of Kids Programming for Amazon Studios, said on Monday. “Working with such remarkably talented and impactful creators in both the preschool and kids six-to-11 space, it’s exciting to see where the storylines and characters will take us for another season.”

Preschool show “Tumble Leaf” was created by Drew Hodges (“Saturday Night Live”) and is executive produced alongside Kelli Bixler (also from “SNL”) of Bix Pix Entertainment.

“Creative Galaxy” comes from Out of the Blue EnterprisesAngela C. Santomero (“Blue’s Clues”) is creator and executive producer, Samantha Freeman is executive producer. The series is animated by 9 Story Entertainment.

“Annedroids,” created by J.J. Johnson (“Dino Dan”) and Sinking Ship Entertainment, is a kids six-to-11 live-action adventure series.

“Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street,” created by David Anaxagoras and executive produced by Luke Matheny (“God of Love”), serves the same age group as “Annedroids.” “Gortimer” was the first to receive a greenlight from Amazon Studios’ open-door pilot submissions process.

Last week, Amazon greenlit five series and renewed “The Man in the High Castle.” Kids shows “Just Add Magic” and “The Stinky & Dirty Show” were among the new series ordered.

All four kids series in Monday’s batch will return exclusively to Prime Instant Video for Prime members to stream as part of their membership.

Speaking of Amazon’s commitment to the young ones, the studio is also developing a reboot of 1970’s kids series “Sigmund and the Sea Monsters,” it revealed earlier this month.
