deal between Netflix and Nickelodeon brings exciting new shows

As the streaming wars continue, Netflix and Nickelodeon announce a multi-year deal to produce original animated content based on the Nickelodeon library and new characters after the launch of Disney+. 

The partnership between the two have already produced specials like “Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling” and “Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus.” Up next are specials based on “The Loud House” and “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” Netflix announced.  

Their supposed goal is to “find fresh new voices and bring bold stories to our global community on Netflix,” the Netflix company said. 

This major announcement was made just days after the launch of Disney +, a streaming service that had taken away plenty of kid-friendly content away from Netflix’s platform. 

Disney + provides 500 movies and 7,500 TV episodes, all that leverage iconic properties like the Disney studio itself, plus Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.

Nickelodeon’s partnership with Netflix is worth more than $200 million. It’s unknown how long this deal between both streaming services has been set to last for or other logistic and legal details.

With Disney + surpassing 10 million sign-ups on it’s first day of operations, Nickelodeon works on exciting new shows in an attempt to fight the amount of attention Disney + is gaining.  A spinoff on Squidward in the works and multiple other projects.

Some Nickelodeon titles added include “A Fairly Odd Summer” (2014), “The Boy Who Cried Werewolf” (2010) and eight others. But most excitingly, three Nickelodeon series such as “Victorious” (3 Seasons), “Sam & Cat” (Season 1), and “Bella and the Bulldogs” (Season 1)have already been added to Netflix’s library.
