Chicken Squad is an upcoming Disney Junior show set to come out in 2020, based on the book of the same name. The description is as follows:

The show follows three young chickens, Coop, Little Boo and Sweetie , and their mentor, Captain JJ Tully, a retired police dog, as they work together to keep their neighborhood safe and sound.

The voice cast includes Ramone Hamilton as Coop, the enthusiastic and inventive leader; Maxwell Simkins as Little Boo, the quick and confident younger brother; Gabriella Graves as Sweetie, the strong and big-hearted sister; and Yvette Nicole Brown as Captain Tully.

The show is created by Disney veteran Tom Rogers (who wrote many Disney Toon Studios movies like Cinderella 2, Winnie The Pooh: Springtime With Roo, and Kronk's New Groove) (on the tv side, he's written one shot scripts for The 7D and Sofia The First, and is a staff writer for Elena Of Avalor) . Rachel Ruderman, who worked on Sofia and Elena, is story editor. Puppy Dog Pals director Scott Bern is supervising director. Wild Canary is handling the animation.

When you scroll down the website, it mentions the show coming out in fall 2020. I predict an October release date.

This article about Karissa Valencia's Netflix show Spirit Rangers says that she's also a writer for this series.

Here's an interview with Tom Rogers, where he talks about two things:

1. The plan is to release the series in spring 2021. It all depends.

2. There's a good deal of diversity behind the scenes, such as having about half of the voice actors being of diverse backgrounds, and about 50% of the writing and storyboarding staff are women.

When will people realize that Quintel in J.G. Quintel is actually pronounced "Kintel"? His Portuguese ancestry makes it evident. I for one am Portuguese and Quintel is a very rare surname
Here's the trailer for Wish Dragon.

Since I agreed with @Francisque about keeping the genre-themed MTV channels, here is my rethinking of the ViacomCBS portfolio, posted in Palk Áron 2002's Arts.
