Disney Junior Renews 'Fancy Nancy'

Disney Junior has renewed its animated series Fancy Nancy ahead of the show’s July 13 premiere, the network announced Thursday.

The series, based on the New York Times bestselling book series by Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser, centers around high-spirited six-year-old girl whose zest and enthusiasm for all that is exquisite – including language, nature, art and color -- transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary, according to Disney Junior.

"A creator and true optimist, Nancy is a relatable, imperfect character who exemplifies the problem-solving power of imagination through the comical situations she gets herself into,” said Nancy Kanter, executive vice president, Content and Creative Strategy, Disney Channels Worldwide and general manager, Disney Junior Worldwide in a statement. “We look forward to the series' premiere and sharing even more heartfelt stories that showcase Nancy's creative endeavors and her unwavering belief that she can accomplish her grand ideas while encouraging those around her to do the same."
