We have seen foreshadowing of this, but it has been confirmed that a new tween animated series about Dora the Explorer will be coming to Nickelodeon Fall 2014. The series, “Dora and Friends: Into the City” will feature Dora as a somewhat typical 10 year-old girl that has adventures with her friends and schoolmates.
In this series, Dora will be leaving her best friend, Boots the Monkey, behind for her human friends. Although she is more in the concrete jungle than the natural jungle, Dora will still have problems that she needs to solve with a little help from her friends.
Fans were introduced to tween Dora through a doll. Initially there was some criticism about having a more mature Dora the Explorer, but that subsided over time. There was even a television special that featured the older Dora and her friends.
