Nickelodeon and Netflix To Partner On New Films and Series

With mega-corporations like Disney and Warner Media launching new streaming services, the remaining (relatively) smaller players are looking at how to deal with the rapidly changing marketplace. Nickelodeon (which is no small fry itself, as part of the Viacom empire) has decided to cosy up with Netflix.

Nick and Netflix have a past history, with the kid's network recently selling the nostalgia-bating Rocko's Modern Life and Invader Zim specials to the streamer. Specials based on Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Loud House are also coming to Netflix in the near future.

It seems that this working relationship has been going well, as on the back of that Nick has signed an ongoing deal to produce both animated features and TV series for streaming, with the plan to produce content featuring a mix of established characters and brand new ones.

Netflix is notoriously cagey about viewing figures, but this would seem to suggest they were more than happy with the reception of the new specials. If that's the case, don't be surprised to see more revivals of old Nick shows (whether it's more Rocko and Zim or other older series). It will also add to the impressive line-up of animation coming to Netflix in future.

Nickelodeon has been working on finding ways to revive their classic franchises for some time, with as well as the two previously mentioned specials, the long-awaited Hey Arnold The Jungle Movie finally seeing the light of day. Will we see more revivals or reboots, or even the once mooted Nicktoon crossover movie?
