Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood is a continuation/spin-off of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. It features Daniel Tiger, the four-year-old son of the original Daniel Striped Tiger from the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, and other children of the characters from the Neighborhood. The series first aired on September 3, 2012.

Each episodes contains two 11-minute stories where Daniel and his friends invite the viewers to come with them on their fun adventures as they explore the Neighborhood. Both stories are linked by a common theme, such as disappointment and sadness or anger, or being thankful and appreciative, and include music that helps children remember the theme.

Season 2 began on Monday, August 18, 2014 with a half-hour special titled "the Baby is here", where the family celebrates the arrival of Daniel's little sister, Margaret. Two more new episodes will premiere on Tuesday and Wednesday, focusing on the family as they adjust to life with the baby.

A fifth season was announced in 2019 and premiered on August 17, 2020.

A sixth season is currently in production.

A seventh season is currently yet to be announced.

The show is produced by The Fred Rogers Company, 9 Story Media Group, and Out of the Blue Enterprises.
