Nickelodeon Shutters NickRewind Retro Programming Block

It appears as if Nickelodeon is discontinuing NickRewind, the network's late-night retro programming block on TeenNick after over 10 years on air.

In mid-January, NickRewind removed most of its shows, opting to air the original iCarly series most evenings between 11 p.m. - 6 a.m., but keeping the NickRewind branding and BUGS/DOGS. However, starting last night (Jan. 31), TeenNick started to use its own branding and BUGS/DOGS during those hours.

TeenNick's evening programming block for Nickelodeon Classics begun life as The '90s Are All That in July 2011. The block then became known as The Splat in October 2015, followed by NickSplat in May 2017, and eventually NickRewind in March 2019.

The news comes as Nickelodeon's parent company, ViacomCBS, is switching its focus on streaming. A vast amount of Nickelodeon's back-catalog is available on Paramount+, the company's streaming platform, with more being added regularly.

Update (2/3) - The NickRewind Twitter page has confirmed that the NickRewind programming block has been discontinued. However, programming is still available on ViacomCBS' free streaming service Pluto TV and paid-for streaming service Paramount+:

For the moment, Nickelodeon is keeping its NickRewind social media pages on Twitter, FacebookInstagram and YouTube channel open for fans, although the latter has started to concentrate on Nickelodeon shows made post-2000, such as iCarly, Victorious and Sam & Cat.
