|Season 6 - Above and Beyond|
Season 6 is an upcoming season of The Octonauts. It was confirmed on July 2, 2018 by Silvergate CEO and co-founder, Waheed Alli, and first reported by Variety: CCTV is not a partner on Season 6, which is in early production and Alli hints at a new direction for the Octonauts. “It is going to see a departure from Seasons 1 to 5,” he said. “We are driven by our own curiosity and we kind of wanted to go to other places.”
Season 6 introduces the concept of "Terra Gups", Gups for traveling on land. It will also introduce a new character, Pani the monkey. In addition, it is shown that Min the Mapmaker from Season 5 will also make an appearance, along with Tracker and Professor Natquik from Season 4, Ryla from The Caves of Sac Actun, and more characters like Calico Jack and Pearl.
Season 6 has a new logo and a new name: "Octonauts Above and Beyond". Mainframe Studios (responsible for the Octonauts Netflix specials) will continue to be involved in its production.
