The BBC has ordered a third series of 'Wizards vs Aliens'.
The CBBC sci-fi show - which was created by former 'Doctor Who' executive producer Russell T. Davies - has been commissioned for a brand new series to begin airing later this year.
The action-packed show follows young wizard Tom Clarke (Scott Haran) and his pal Benny Sherwood (Percelle Ascott) as they battle the villainous Nekross, who threaten to destroy the universe and all of wizardkind in their pursuit of magic.
Cheryl Taylor, BBC's controller of CBBC, said: "CBBC is the home of thrilling and inspiring drama for children and 'Wizards vs Aliens' is a perfect example of that. The series is vivid and brave and our audience loves the portrayal of loyal friendship alongside exciting alien battles and stunning wizardry.
"Children want to talk about Tom, Benny and the Nekross and we know they'll be delighted to hear a third series is being conjured up by the talented team in Wales."
The latest series will see Tom and Benny encounter a new alien race and lots of exciting new magical creatures.
Production on the third series of 'Wizards vs Aliens' will begin next month, and the series will air across 2014 and 2015.
