The Dumping Ground is an upcoming 2013 children's drama. The show will broadcast on the CBBC Channel with 13 half-hour long episodes.[1] The main intention of the spin off is to continue focusing on Jacqueline Wilson's fictional care home "Dumping Ground" which has been the focus of previous shows The Story of Tracy Beaker (2002–2006) and Tracy Beaker Returns (2010–2012). The spin off will continue to develop into the everyday lives and experiences of young people in care, with new dilemmas, dramas and friendships.

Gina Cronk will return as the Executive Producer along with writer Elly Brewer who worked on all three series of Tracy Beaker Returns. Nick Sharratt’s popular animated illustrations, which featured in the award-winning series The Story of Tracy Beaker and Tracy Beaker Returns will appear in The Dumping Ground. It has been confirmed that the actress Dani Harmer, who played the titular character Tracy Beaker will not star in the new series.

The Dumping Ground began filming on 9 July 2012, and will premiere on 4 January 2013. A trailer was released in early December 2012 and a 30-second preview of Episode 1 became available on the CBBC website on 28 December 2012.
