Netflix has expanded its multiyear licensing agreement with PBS Distribution for its members in the U.S. and Canada.

Starting this fall, members will have SVOD access to all seasons of U.K. murder mystery drama The Bletchley Circle and in 2014 Netflix will be the exclusive SVOD home of the PBS Kids preschool series Super Why!

Netflix will also add children's series Wild Kratts, Cailou and Arthur, Ken Burns documentaries including Prohibition and Central Park Five, and past seasons of nonfiction series Nova and Secrets of the Dead.

The PBS deal follows Netflix's acquisition of the Fox comedy New Girl.
