Although the new season of Cartoon Network Craig of the Creek barely picked up earlier this week, the network has already decided it wants to see much, much more of Craig, the rest of the Johnson family, and the other Creek Kids.
In a move that’s sure to calm fans who can never be certain if and when these shows will return, Cartoon Network just announced that Craig of the Creek has been renewed for a fifth season that will continue to follow the adventures of Craig (Philip Solomon), Kelsey (Noël Wells) and JP (H. Michael Croner) as they discover new depths of the creek they call a second home. .
With a whole new half of the creek suddenly becoming available to Craig and the gang in the show’s final season, Craig of the Creekhinted at introducing even more characters with new ideas on how best to imagine shared space as something more than the woods around their neighborhood.

With Craig’s younger sister Jessica (Lucia Cunningham) finally old enough to go to preschool, she’s also set to be the star of Jessica’s little big world, her own series co-created and produced by Matt Burnett, Ben Levin and Tiffany Ford that explores the world from Jessica’s unique perspective. Promotional art for Jessica’s little big world appears to depict Jessica alongside a talking version of her beloved stuffed animal, Small Uncle, as well as a curiously different (read: older, more together) version of the Creek Kid Wren, hinting at how much about the series are depicted as Jessica sees them rather than as they actually are.
