With over 10 million people subscribing to Disney+ on the first day of availability, you know that the other streaming services had to be worried.
Well, Netflix is the first to answer. On the day after Disney+ rolled out, the OG streaming service announced a deal with Nickelodeon! I’m sure it’s no coincidence that kid-friendly and nostaligic programming are on the hot things right now.
“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,” said Netflix vice president of original animation, Melissa Cobb. “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.”
If you are near the millenial age, you may see some of your childhood favorite characters make a comback! Let me know if you see any news about a reboot of Salute your Shorts, Are You Afraid of the Dark or David the Gnome. Those were my jams!
So, what do you think? Does the addition of Nickelodeon characters and worlds move the needle for you?
