Netflix will be carrying two of Nickelodeon’s TV movies which the network has failed to air thus far. It extends Netflix’s relationship with Nickelodeon where it has carried multiple Nick projects.
Both movies are revivals of two classic Nickelodeon titles with one being Rocko and Invader Zim. The news came after the CEO of Viacom was on an earnings call on Friday, May 10th speaking about future projects.
The two movies have actually been finished and ready to be distributed for over a year now and had been thought to be have been ditched with the creator even worried about it being released at all.

Here’s a bit more details on each of the titles but it’s worth noting no release dates have been announced as of yet. The biggest Nickelodeon series to come to Netflix exclusively so far is when Netflix carried Pinky Malinky which saw its most recent season added last month.
Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus!
Invader Zim was announced all the way back in July 2018 where it was announced it would be revived after many years being off the screen.
The movie sees ZIM returning with his leaders not intending of coming to Earth but Zim comes down once again and dresses up in his disguise.
Among the voice talent for Invader Zim is Olivia d’Abo, Richard Steven Horvitz, Kevin McDonald and Andy Berman.
Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling
Rocko’s hasn’t been on Nickelodeon since the 90s and is returning for its feature-length movie that was supposedly going to arrive in April 2019.
The movie is also about aliens who return to earth to try and live as humans in a relatively modern setting. Things have changed since the series first began so there’s a lot of adjusting to do.
Joe Murray writes and directs and the movie features the voice talents of Carlos Alazraqui, Tom Kenny and Mr. Lawrence.
In the United States, Netflix doesn’t carry many Nickelodeon titles whereas countries like the United Kingdom carry a whole multitude of Nick’s own catalogs such as Spongebob Squarepants.
We’ll have more on these titles once release dates get confirmed by Netflix.
