Netflix has been upping their animation game for well over a year now, with countless other big projects still on the way. Well, now we have another big development coming. The folks from Variety are reporting that Netflix and Nickelodeon have signed a new deal that will see even more projects hit.
This multi-year output deal will encapsulate original animated features and shows. Some projects will be based on existing Nickelodeon characters, but some will feature brand-new ones as well.
This isn’t a huge surprise, as Netflix and Nickelodeon have already worked together to bring projects such as Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling and Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus into existence. This feels like kind of an extension of that partnership.
Currently, the two are working on projects based on The Loud House and Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
“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,” said Brian Robbins, president of Nickelodeon. “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.”
