New Series “Kiff” Arrives On Disney+ Ahead Of Earlier Announced Premiere Date

Earlier than anticipated, the first six episodes of the new Disney Channel series, Kiff, are now available on Disney+ for subscribers to enjoy.

What’s Happening:

  • Originally set for a Disney+ debut on March 15th, the first six episodes of the new series from Disney TV Animation, Kiff, are now available on the popular streaming platform.
  • The series originally debuted last night, Friday, March 10th on Disney Channel, and can still be seen on the network and its companion app, DisneyNOW. It is worth noting that as of press time, the first six episodes of the series are also available on the DisneyNOW app.
  • From creators and executive producers Lucy Heavens and Nic Smal, the series follows Kiff and her best buddy bunny Barry as they navigate school, relationships and their often-eccentric community in Table Town, a world where animals and magical oddballs tackle day-to-day life together.
