‘Dora’ Revival Renewed for Season 2 at Paramount+

Paramount+ has renewed its new “Dora” series for a second season.

Based on “Dora the Explorer,” which ran on Nickelodeon from 2000 to 2019, the animated preschool series follows a Dora (voiced by Diana Zermeño), and her best friend, a monkey named Boots (Asher Colton Spence), as they embark on adventures in a fantastical rainforest. Guided by their trustworthy talking Map (Anairis Quiñones), Dora and her friends must work together to overcome many obstacles while being challenged by a sneaky fox named Swiper (Marc Weiner). Kathleen Herles, the original voice of Dora the Explorer, voices Dora’s mother aka Mami.
