People who grew up watching Nickelodeon's odd assortment of original shows are going to be feeling nostalgic soon. Nick has just signed a multi-year output deal with Netflix to produce new animated shows.

Variety reports that Nickelodeon's deal with Netflix will produce several new animated shows in the following years. In addition to bringing back beloved Nickelodeon characters for possible reboots, the deal will include original new shows.


Netflix vice president of original animation Melissa Cobb was understandably excited about the agreement

"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," Cobb said in a statement. "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."

Nickelodeon president Brian Robbins agrees. "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," Robbins said.

The Viacom-owned studio has previously collaborated with the streaming giant on Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling and Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus which both served as sequels to the beloved animated shows. We wouldn't be surprised if the new deal means that Spongebob Squarepants, The Loud House, and The Fairly OddParents are in for a major comeback.
