The titular series has been renewed for a fifth season at Cartoon Network and HBO Max. Craig of The Creek follows the precocious Craig and his best friends Kelsey and J.P., as they transform everyday afternoons into extraordinary adventures through imaginative play at the neighborhood creek.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Not only will Craig return for a 5th season, Craig of The Creek will also further expand with a preschool spinoff series centered on Craig’s sister Jessica on Cartoonito and an original animated movie!
Jessica’s Big Little World centers on the Creek’s favorite resilient little sister, Jessica, as she navigates her way through a world where everything seems much bigger than she is. Although she’s the youngest and still needs help with a lot, Jessica is inspired by the grown-ups and bigger kids around her and is persistent in her quest to conquer monumental kid tasks like creating a bedtime routine or saying hi to a new classmate. With the help of her friends, imaginary and real, Jessica sets off to take on the world, even if she still does suck her thumb…sometimes. Her series is et to debut in 2023
“Seeing how viewers automatically fell in love with Jessica, the littlest member of the Williams family, and her big belief that she can do what everyone else does, developing Jessica’s Big Little World was a natural next step in the Craig universe, Tiffany has been part of the Craig of the Creek family since the beginning and there isn’t a better voice to bring our pint-sized heroine’s journey to preschoolers.”
said Matt Burnett and Ben Levin, Executive Producers and Co-Creators, Craig of the Creek.
