Netflix and Nickelodeon are linking up for a multi-year deal where they will produce original animated feature films and tv series. The films and series will be based on new and existing nickelodeon characters!
Nickelodeon has bought several titles to Netflix which included Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus and Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling.
Netflix's Vice President Melissa Cobb expressed, "Nickelodeon has generated scores of characters that kids love, and we look forward to telling wholly original stories that re-imagine and expand on the worlds they inhabit. 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."
Brian Robbins, Nickelodeon's President stated "Nickelodeon’s next step forward is to keep expanding beyond linear platforms, and our broader content partnership with Netflix is a key path toward that goal."
What are your thoughts about this collaboration? Personally, I am here for it! I am a 90's baby and would love to see my favorite childhood shows like Rugrats, The Fairly Oddparents and Hey Arnold make a comeback.
