Nickelodeon Renews Animated Series Variety
Nickelodeon has made the decision to bring back an animated series for another season. Variety reports that the kid-focused cable channel ordered a third season of “Sanjay and Craig."
The renewal comes before the second season premieres next month, the report notes. The show features the voices of Chris Hardwick of “The Talking Dead” and Maulik Pancholy of “30 Rock.”
“That’s a big show of confidence from the cable channel for an animated comedy about 12-year-old Indian-American Sanjay and his best friend, who happens to be a talking snake (Hardwick),” the story notes.
The animated program has scored big ratings, ranking as Nickelodeon's second-most-watched animated show across all TV, behind “SpongeBob SquarePants,” the story says.
