Nickelodeon and Netflix are fighting back against Disney+. In a press conference, they announced they’ve formed a new, multi-year deal to produce original content. Upcoming projects will feature both existing as well as new Nickelodeon characters.
“Nickelodeon’s next step forward is to keep expanding beyond linear platforms,” said Brian Robbins, the president of Nickelodeon, “and our broader content partnership with Netflix is a key path toward that goal.”
According to Variety, approximately sixty percent of Netflix subscribers watch content geared toward kids and families, and this isn’t the first collaboration between Netflix and Nickelodeon. Several Nickelodeon show continuations have been developed for Netflix, including Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling and Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus.
As excited as Nickelodeon is for the collaboration, Netflix is equally jazzed.
Netflix vice president of original animation, Melissa Cobb, had this to say: “We’re thrilled to continue collaborating with Brian Robbins, Ramsey Naito, and the creative team at Nickelodeon in new ways as we look to find fresh voices and bring bold stories to our global audience on Netflix.”
No official roster of shows from Nickelodeon to air on Netflix has been announced. However, specials based on The Loud House, a Nickelodeon show that premiered in 2016, and Rise of the Teenage Mutant NinjaTurtles are currently in the works.
Though there’s not much news yet in the way of upcoming Nickelodeon projects on Netflix, we have more animated films and series to look forward to on Netflix in the interim. Some of these include Klaus (Sergio Pablos) and Fast & Furious Spy Racers (Dreamworks).
We can only guess that we’ll be hearing more about this Netflix and Nickelodeon partnership in the very near future!
