Nickelodeon India Acquires 'Zig & Sharko' Season 4

Nick News Brief: Nickelodeon India has acquired the rights to the fourth season of the iconic non-dialogue slapstick comedy series Zig & Sharko! Produced by Xilam Animation, Zig & Sharko will launch in September 2023, and the company will debut the first episode to buyers at MIPCOM. Xilam has also sold the new instalment to existing partners, VRT (Belgium), Discovery (Italy), DeA (Italy) and Nova (Israel).

Zig & Sharko continues to generate impressive ratings internationally, particularly in India where the series resulted in Nickelodeon becoming the leading children’s channel in its evening slot, across all demos. In Q2 2022, Zig & Sharko was also the fourth best performing series among children aged 2-14 years and outperformed its lead in and lead out shows in all demos in terms of ratings.

On the high seas, the beach or an ocean liner, Zig, a hungry hyena has one thing in mind: dining on Marina, the carefree mermaid. With help from Bernie, a genius hermit-crab, he comes up with the zaniest plans to capture her … but that’s forgetting Sharko, the shark with rippling muscles who will do anything to protect his mermaid honey! The new fourth season will surprise audiences, as they watch Zig, Sharko and Bernie make their way back to their island, accompanied by Marina - who fans will see growing her very own legs thanks to magical sandals.
