Several months before the series premiered, Nickelodeon and Noggin aired music videos featuring the Fresh Beats. At this time, they were known as The JumpArounds. A JumpArounds minisite was released on before the name was changed to The Fresh Beat Band during the summer of 2009. The show aired 60 episodes (56 regular and 2 double-length episodes) over 3 seasons. In December 2013, it was announced that the show would not be renewed for a fourth season.
