Here at Collider, we cover a lot of stuff, be it Star Wars, superheroes, or cinephile fare, and everything from movies and TV, to video games and web series. There’s something for everyone. But there’s so much stuff out there that sometimes our younger audience members get left out. So every once in a while, we’d like to shine a spotlight on some family-friendly content that parents and caregivers can confidently watch with the little ones.
In today’s Collider Kids segment, it’s our pleasure to bring you some exclusive, first-look images at the new season of PBS Kids’ Ready Jet Go! Season 2 of the kid-friendly, educational series hit arrives on the network Monday, April 2nd and will be airing new episodes all week. The new stories will feature the adventures of Boxwood Terrace’s very own Mindy Melendez – starting with the half-hour special, “Mindy Turns 5”.
The Season 2 fun continues this summer with a space-infused new episode set to roll out each Wednesday in June and July. For even more stellar STEM-focused learning, each episode features live-action interstitials with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory astrophysicist Dr. Amy Mainzer, science consultant for the series.
As a bonus, Ready Jet Go! creator Craig Bartlett (Hey Arnold!, Dinosaur Train) will participate in a can’t-miss Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) on April 2nd at 3pm ET. Fans can stop by to ask Craig about the new season, what’s coming next – and anything else Redditors might want to know about. We’d love for you to spread the word about the upcoming AMA, and we invite you to join Craig yourself to ask him anything. Just check out the Sub-Reddit IAmA on April 2nd and Craig will be there! You can also check out Collider Kids’ own interview with Bartlett from last year’s Ready Jet Go! holiday special here.
In the meantime, check out our exclusive images from the new season below, along with descriptions and dates for upcoming episodes!
