Followers of Jamie Johnson have, over the years, sent me many messages asking about that possibilities of a JJ film or TV series. Well, the time has now come! Short Form Film and CBBC have made the TV show and now you can watch it!

All three episodes of Jamie Johnson, Season 1, are available now via the BBC iPlayer. Click the link below to view.

It’s been a long and brilliant journey to get to this point and everyone that has read the books and spread the word about them has played such an important role in the journey.

Naturally the TV show is slightly different to the books so keep an open mind as you enter Jamie’s on-screen world.

Do let us know what you think. Short Form Film company have done a terrific job bringing Jamie Johnson to life and now he’s there for you to watch and follow.

So, thank you again for your support, enjoy the show and we look forward to making Season 2 for you as soon as we can.

    I think the series was great. They naturally changed a few things, I noticed Kingfield School was now called Kingsmount, and Hugo Bogson (or Boggy!) attends that school rather than The Grove where he first meets Jamie but aside from everything else, most is pretty much the same. It was well directed (I loved the little football animation scenes and of course the MOTD cut-scenes) and I thought the actors were excellent. This is something I’ve been dreaming of for more than five years to put a face to the name. Looking to the new series when/if it comes out.

    Hi Dan

    Just watching the new series with my son Charlie Cox. We both loved reading the books together and are both really enjoying watching the series! I like the soundtrack too! Well done!

    I find the electric ball animation parts a bit weird but other than that I found the slice of life part quite interesting.
