Netflix has just unveiled the June 2022 slate, and one of the surprising but welcome additions is a selection of seasons from several cult hits from the Nickelodeon library. Here’s a rundown of the new Nickelodeon shows coming to Netflix US in June 2022.
The only caveat to these additions is that Netflix isn’t the best place to watch these shows, as they’re really only adding what we’d call sample seasons. This is a strategy that we have seen playing out at ViacomCBS and Netflix for several years. They license previous seasons of a show in the hopes that people will be lured to Paramount+ to watch the whole thing.
So, what new Nickelodeon shows are coming to Netflix US in June 2022? Let’s see:
We should note that these additions only apply to Netflix in the United States. All of these new additions are coming to Netflix on June 22.
All of that (Seasons 2-3)
Once credited with being America’s #1 kid’s sketch comedy show, this long-running series came from executive producers Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell. Think SNL for kids. It ran for 10 seasons between 1994 and 2005 before getting a revival season in 2019.
Netflix is adding seasons 2 and 3 of the show. Season 2 ran for 21 episodes between 1995 and 1996, while Season 3 ran between November 1996 and October 1997.
Kenan and Kel (Seasons 1-2)
Between 1997 and 2000, the comedy show was hosted by Kenan Thompson (now a regular on Saturday Night Live) and Kel Mitchell.
The show is about two best friends living in Chicago who are always swept up in Kenan’s get-rich-quick scheme, while Kel, who loves orange juice, gets carried away but tends to screw things up.
Netflix is adding the first two seasons of the four-season show.
Ned’s Released School Survival Guide (Seasons 1-2)
The first two seasons of the three-season Nickelodeon series Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide will also be released on Netflix US next month.
Starring Devon Werkheiser, Lindsey Shaw and Daniel Curtis Lee, the show is about high school students who devise a guidebook to survive at their hostile school.
Zoey 101 (Seasons 1-2)
Finally but certainly not the least Zoey 101 which ended up lasting four seasons and starring Jamie Lynn Spears, Paul Butcher, Sean Flynn and Victoria Justice. Netflix is getting the first two seasons.
The show, which aired between 2005 and 2008, features Zoey Brooks and her brother attending their first day at a private boarding school that enrolls girls for the first time in its history.
Once these shows are added to Netflix, the service will have over 21 Nickelodeon shows in total. That includes favorites like Avatar: The Last Airbender† victoriousand The Thundermans plus Nick shows listed as Netflix Originals including: Pinky Malinky and Glitch Techs†
In 2022, Netflix will also have a license in the US Pretty strange parents! and That Girl Lay Lay which was renewed for a season 2.
