It was announced Wednesday morning that Nickelodeon is set to produce original animated movies and shows for Netflix.
As the steaming wars heat up, Nickelodeon has partnered up with Netflix for a multi-year deal to provide them with animated movies and shows exclusively for the streaming service. The announcement made on Wednesday also says the new shows and movies will be based on familiar Nickelodeon characters and new ones.
Nickelodeon teaming up with Netflix isn’t a shock because Viacom currently doesn’t have a streaming service unlike Warner Media and Disney. Some projects that Nickelodeon are developing for Netflix include The Loud House and Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies in addition to a live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series. The New York Times is also reporting that a SpongeBob Square Pants “music based” spin-off centered on Squidward is in the works for Netflix. You can read a statement about the Netflix and Nickelodeon deal below:
“The Nickelodeon Animation Studio is home to the world-class artists and storytellers behind some of the most iconic characters and shows ever made, and our head of Animation, Ramsey Naito, has been building on that legacy over the past year by ramping up development and production exponentially. The ideas and work at our Studio are flowing, and we can’t wait to work with Melissa and the Netflix team on a premium slate of original animated content for kids and families around the world.”
