Paddington Bear is coming to Nickelodeon with the voice of Ben Whishaw

One of our favourite bears is set to hit our screens.

Paddington Bear will be airing on Nickelodeon and aimed at younger children, which means a whole new generation will experience the much-loved character for the first time.

Ben Whishaw will also be reprising his role as the beloved character and the  CG-animated series, which follows the adventures of a younger Paddington.

The iconic bear might be 60 years old but his younger audience will be delighted to meet the marmalade-loving literary classic bear. 

The show will see Paddington writing to his Aunt Lucy from Windsor Gardens, after leaving his home in Peru.

The show will be on our televisions in 2020, and a first-look image shows a 3D-animated Paddington flying above a London sky with an umbrella, wearing his blue duffle coat and hat.

Executive producer David Heyman said, ''It is a joy to bring this uniquely life-enhancing bear to a whole new audience of younger children.''

He continued, ''We are thrilled that the inimitably brilliant Ben Whishaw will continue to voice Paddington.''

The news was met with excitement on social media.

One said, ''My inner four-year-old is screaming in glee.''

While another wrote, ''This makes me unnaturally happy.''

It's something for all of the family to watch together – we can't wait.
