Something huge is in store for the Green family in this weekend’s brand-new episode of Emmy- and Annie Award-winning animated series Big City Greens, now in its third season.
Big City Greens follows the offbeat adventures of 10-year-old Cricket Green, who moved from the country to the big city with his wildly out-of-place family, including hard-working father Bill, sweet-and-sour Gramma Alice and quirky older sister Tilly. His natural curiosity and enthusiasm lead him and his family on epic journeys.
Indicatively titled “The Move,” we’ve got a sneak peek at the mid-season premiere episode, which debuts Saturday, September 24 at 9:30 a.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel. Check it out!
The series stars Chris Houghton as Cricket Green, Artemis Pebdani (Scandal) as Gramma Alice, Marieve Herington (How I Met Your Mother) as Tilly Green and Bob Joles (Puss in Boots) as Bill Green.
Big City Greens is the brainchild of comic book creators and brothers Chris and Shane Houghton (Harvey Beaks) and influenced by their childhood in the small rural town of St. Johns, Michigan, with many of the locations and characters based on their own family members and real-life townsfolk.
In January, Disney Branded Television announced that the series has been renewed for a fourth season, which will bring its episodic total to over 100, as well as a movie musical inspired by the show to air on Disney Channel and Disney+. The movie and series creative team include Michael Coughlin (The Muppets) as producer, Stephen Sandoval (The Owl House) as co-executive producer and Joachim Horsley (Spirit Riding Free) as composer. Big City Greens is a production of Disney Television Animation.
