The series features child actors (whose characters are the employees of the "Odd Squad") who use indirect reasoning and basic math to solve and investigate strange happenings in their town. The series is a general satire of the police procedural and spy fiction genres and uses humor to teach the audience basic math skills and math-related topics. In the UK, the series airs on CBBC.[3] In Latin America, it airs on Discovery Kids. Season 3 of the series has been announced.The series follows the exploits of Odd Squad, an organization run entirely by children, that solves peculiar problems using math skills. In particular, it typically features two employees of the organization's investigation division that work in precinct 13579 of the organization—Agents Olive (Dalila Bela) and Otto (Filip Geljo) in the 1st-5th season, and Olympia (Anna Cathcart) and Otis (Issac Kragten) in the 6th season onwards. Selected episodes feature other types of employees of the fictional organization, like security officers, so-called "tube operators", and scientists. The names of the employees, with one exception, always start with the letter O.

    Agents are typically assigned cases by their boss, Ms. O (Millie Davis), and travel via a system of interconnected tubes to get to their destinations. They deduce the solution to the problem or how to detain the perpetrator by using basic mathematical principles that are typically the focus of the episode. Often, they cannot solve the problem at the scene and must go back to their precinct's headquarters or to the "Mathroom" (T.J. McGibbon), a sentient space that communicates through large paper fortune
