The show will debut with 13 episodes in the U.S. on April 8. Additional episodes will drop later this year.
The series follows Barbie “Malibu” Roberts and Barbie “Brooklyn” Roberts, who first teamed up in the animated movie musical “Barbie: Big City, Big Dreams,” go-getting young musicians chasing the dream of stardom while attending the prestigious Handler School of Performing Arts in New York City.
The series introduces new characters, new songs, new choreography and new adventures for the dollsome duo, including recording a demo tape and taking odd jobs to fund their music careers.
It Barbie’s first full-length television series since 2018’s “Dreamhouse Adventures,” which is also on Netflix.

With all new music and more exciting adventures, the series follows the girls’ hilarious and empowering adventures in friendship, sisterhood and family, all while discovering their limitless potential,” Christopher Keenan, senior vice president of Global Content & Executive Producer at Mattel Television, said in a statement.
