Nickelodeon has entered into a multi-year partnership with Netflix to create original animated movies and TV shows based on some of its best-known properties.

Originals such as Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling and Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus have already landed exclusively on Netflix courtesy of Nick, and this new deal will expand upon that.

New originals will “reimagine and expand” upon some of Nickelodeon’s best-known the worlds and characters, according to Melissa Cobb, Netflix’s Vice President of Original Animation. Forthcoming specials are already in the works for Nick’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and The Loud House.

Brian Robbins, President, Nickelodeon, says: “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.

“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.”

The pair will also work on creating brand-new IP aimed at family audiences, led by animated content from Nickelodeon.

“We’re thrilled to continue collaborating with Brian Robbins, [Nickelodeon animation head] 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,” Melissa adds.
