EXCLUSIVE UPDATED: Nickelodeon has ended its long relationship with one of its most prolific series creators, Dan Schneider.
“Following many conversations together about next directions and future opportunities, Nickelodeon and our long-time creative partner Dan Schneider/Schneider’s Bakery have agreed to not extend the current deal,” Nickelodeon and Schneider said in a joint statement to Deadline.
“We thank Dan and his Schneider’s Bakery producers, executives and social media team for their immeasurable contributions to Nickelodeon, and we wish them the best in their future endeavors.
And Dan and Schneider’s Bakery are proud of the work they did together with Nickelodeon and will always remain big fans of the network.”.
The decision comes as Nickelodeon has opted to cancel Schneider’s latest series, Game Shakers after three seasons.
“After three seasons and 63 episodes, Nickelodeon has wrapped production on its live-action series Game Shakers,” Nickelodeon said in a statement to Deadline.
Sources say that Schneider objected to the prospect of having to share the office and production space with the non-Bakery show. »
