Variety reported that Netflix and Nickelodeon are expanding their partnership. The two companies have inked a multi-million dollar output deal to produce original animated features and television shows.
These projects will introduce new characters as well as revive some Nickelodeon classics. Netflix vice president of original animation Melissa Cobb said:
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.
