Paramount+ has renewed the animated preschool series Dora for a second season. It is a reboot of Dora the Explorer. The show follows Dora (Diana Zermeño), a young Latina explorer, and her best monkey friend Boots (Asher Colton Spence), as they embark on epic adventures in a fantastical rainforest. Season 1 was released April 12.

“Kids and family programming is consistently one of the most popular genres on Paramount+ and we’re thrilled that our audience has already embraced Dora,” Paramount+ EVP of programming Jeff Grossman said. Dora is created by Chris Gifford and Valerie Walsh Valdes, who also serve as executive producers with Rich Magallanes.

Cher, Mary J. Blige and Ozzy Osbourne are to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this fall, along with Dave Matthews Band, Foreigner, Peter Frampton, Kool & The Gang, Ozzy Osbourne and A Tribe Called Quest.

The ceremony is to air live on Disney+ and ABC from the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio, on October 19.

“Rock & Roll is an ever-evolving amalgam of sounds that impacts culture and moves generations,” John Sykes, chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, said in a statement. “This diverse group of inductees each broke down musical barriers and influenced countless artists that followed in their footsteps.”

To qualify for induction, artists must be active for at least 25 years and “created music whose originality, impact and influence has changed the course of rock & roll,” according to the Hall of Fame’s website.
