The twenty-second season (going under the name Diesel's Big World! Big Adventure!) of Diesel & Friends is expected to be released in 2018 on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon.
Season 22 will mark the first major "reboot" of the franchise since the show switched to full CGI in the thirteenth season. The episodes will keep their eleven minute-long runtime, but will now be broken into seven minute-long stories, with an additional four minutes reserved for a variety of segments like sing-along karaoke songs, music videos or Diesel talking directly with the audience about lessons learned during a particular episode. Among many other changes, Sidney, Den and Dart will be Replaced
With Winter and Kala, and the narrator has been replaced with Diesel talking to the audience (however, Mark Moraghan has said that he will still work on the series).
Season 22 will be set after Diesel's Big World! Big Adventure! The Movie. The season will be split into two halves; the first half will see Diesel travelling around the world and visiting India, Australia, China and Africa, while the second half will take place back on the Island of Sodor. The season will also be released on Netflix, Amazon and Hulu in the fall of 2018.
