LEGO has announced the brand new LEGO Friends series which will be airing on YouTube starting on January 29. It will feature a 44 minute launch special and throughout 2023, there will be ten 22 minute episodes in the first season along with a holiday special. The first official episode will be airing on March 26. Check out the stills from the episode one below.

A decade on from the launch of LEGO® Friends, the LEGO Group has re-imagined the Friends Universe, with the introduction of a new diverse group of characters, to enable more children to feel represented during play. This next generation is designed to celebrate friendships in the modern world. Because the LEGO Group values children as its role models, this next generation of LEGO Friends has implemented input from kid testing and research, which all found children had a desire to see themselves, their friends and their families better represented.

A huge part of the re-imagined Friends Universe is the release of a brand new content series: LEGO Friends: The Next Chapter. Season one follows the everyday lives of Aliya, Autumn, Leo, Zac, Nova, Paisley, Olly, and Liann as they navigate their first year of high school while becoming friends. Taking place in the international hub of Heartlake City, the goal of the first season is to experience the formation of friendship amidst the backdrop of the impressive Heartlake International High School and to establish the Heartlake Community Center as a third space for the friends and the community.

Attending high school for the first time is both exciting and daunting for everyone! LEGO Friends showcases the challenges that arise from new responsibilities, new friendships, and wanting to have a meaningful impact on the community they cherish. Sometimes the best friendships form in the most surprising ways.

Season 1 consists of a 44min launch special and 10 x 22min episodes and a 22 min holiday special. For the first time, all of the episodes will be published on YouTube as well as being hosted on a new video player on The launch special will appear on YouTube on Sunday 29th January. The rest of the season will begin streaming in March. The player will be available later in the year. In addition to the main show, there will be over 300 minutes of supporting content including vlogs, music videos and talkbacks to allow fans to dive even deeper into the world of LEGO Friends.
