The Second Series (or the Second Season) of Shaun the Sheep was composed of 40 episodes. The series premiere was "Double Trouble" and the series finale was "We Wish Ewe A Merry Christmas". The series is known for its more realistic character designs as well as the fact that in the intro everything goes wrong which affects the character designs.
