Just a day after Disney+ launched their new streaming service, Netflix and Nickelodeon have announced their new partnership deal.
The multi-year output deal will produce feature films as well as TV series based on new and old Nickelodeon characters. Upcoming specials that fall under the new deal will feature projects based on ‘The Loud House’ and ‘Rise of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’
“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,” Netflix’s original animation Vice President, Melissa Cobb, stated in an official press release. “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.”
This isn’t the first time that Netflix and Nickelodeon have collaborated as they’ve previously released projects such as ‘Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling’ and ‘Invader Zim: Enter The Florpus’ which are both available on Netflix.
“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 President of Nickelodeon, Brian Robbins.
