Canada-based Nerd Corps Entertainment’s Slugterra has extended its U.K. reach by bowing on Channel 5 last Saturday.

The series made its U.K. debut on Disney XD in March and continues to be aired daily by the channel, as well. Thirty-nine 22-minute episodes have been produced to date, with more in production.

Master Toy partner Jakks Pacific will launch a line of blasters, dart packs and collectible slug figures launched at Smyth’s, Toys’R'Us and The Entertainer, along with additions to the toy line  for holiday this year.  Smyth’s are also on-air sponsors for the series on Disney XD.

Slugterra follows the  journey of teen Eli Shane and his best friends, the Shane Gang.
