Nickelodeon Reveals Stream of New Content for 2022-23


Nickelodeon is set to debut multiple new preschool series and brand extensions of hit titles in the 2022-23 broadcast season.

Among the new programs on Nickelodeon’s slate is HexVet, an adaptation of the BOOM! Studios graphic novels by Sam Davies. The adventure-comedy series follows unlikely best friends Nan and Clarion as they train to be magical veterinarians.

The 20-episode preschool series, developed for TV by Nicole Dubuc (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, The Rocketeer), is slated to hit screens in 2023.

In Face’s Music Party, Nickelodeon is bringing back the ’90s Nick Jr. mascot, Face. The music variety show will feature a reimagined Face as host, playing modern pop hits and revamped nursery school classics. Each episode will center around themes such as friendship, confidence, pirates and transportation, which will inform the song playlist. The 13-episode series is set to premiere this summer on Nickelodeon’s preschool platforms in the U.S.

Nickelodeon has also greenlit Bossy Bear, from husband-and-wife team David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim (UglyDolls) and based on the book series by Horvath. Following the misadventures of Bossy Bear, an overly enthusiastic extrovert, and Turtle, a thoughtful introvert, the series takes place in a Koreatown-inspired city. It is slated to premiere on Nickelodeon in the U.S. and Nick Jr. channels internationally in 2023.

In addition to the brand-new series, new seasons of Big Nate, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Middlemost Post, Are You Afraid of the Dark?: Ghost Island and Blue’s Clues’ & You! are set for the 2022-23 broadcast season.

Nickelodeon is extending several of its hit brands as well. PAW Patrol has been renewed for a tenth season and, in honor of its tenth anniversary in 2023, will see its first-ever spin-off, centering on Rubble.

The SpongeBob SquarePants franchise will see a 14th season, new episodes of its two spin-off series, three character-driven movies launching exclusively on Paramount+ and a fourth theatrical release.

Other brands being expanded include Baby Shark, which will see a feature-length movie debut on Paramount+ in the U.S. and an upcoming episode featuring Cardi B and her family; The Loud House, with a new original live-action series from Nickelodeon Studios based on the Emmy-Award winning animated series of the same name; and Transformers, which will see the launch of the new animated series Transformers: EarthSpark on Paramount+ later this year, the Transformers: Rise of the Beasts film next summer and an untitled animated film set for 2024.
