Nickelodeon Greenlights Second Season Of Hit Animated Series "Sanjay And Craig"

BURBANK, Calif., Sept. 12, 2013 -- Nickelodeon announced today that it has greenlit a 20-episode second season of Sanjay and Craig, an original animated series that follows the misadventures of Sanjay, an excitable and irreverent 12-year-old boy (Maulik Pancholy, 30 Rock) and his best friend Craig, a smooth-talking snake and master of disguise (Chris Hardwick, The Talking Dead). Together, they embark on awesome kid-inspired quests that are at times totally ridiculous, absolutely gross and weirdly sweet. The series is created by Jim Dirschberger, Jay Howell and Andreas Trolf. Dirschberger, Howell and Thurop Van Norman are co-executive producers, and award-winning animation team Chris Viscardi and Will McRobb return as executive producers. The series will make its season one debut on the network's international channels in the fall.

"Sanjay and Craig is a proven hit with our audience and we are excited to continue the journey with a talented creative team who tell engaging stories filled with outrageous adventures and relatable characters," said Russell Hicks, President, Content Development and Production, Nickelodeon. "Our burgeoning slate of animated properties is a testament to our legacy and our continued commitment to deliver creator-driven content that fuels the Nickelodeon Animation Studio."

Sanjay and Craig is the #1 new animated series of the year with all kid demos. The season premiere tallied 3.6 million total viewers; and launch to date, it is averaging 3 million total viewers and posting double-digit gains with K2-11 (+23%) and K6-11 (+29%). Additionally, since its launch, the series is the #1 gaming property on the Nick App with over 2M game plays.

The second season of awesomeness will debut half-hour episodes packed with the misadventures of Sanjay, Craig, and best buds Hector and Megan. The series will continue with more punk rock idiocy, chicken wing lunacy, snake-phobic neighbor insanity, and stoked adoration of all things Remington Tufflips. There's no telling what will be left of the universe after they slash and burn their way through another season of epic episodes.

The series features the voice talents of Pancholy and Hardwick in the lead roles with additional cast members that include: Linda Cardellini (Mad Men, Freaks and Geeks) as Megan; Matt Jones (Breaking Bad) as Hector; Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development) as Mr. Noodman; Grey DeLisle (The Fairly OddParents) as Darlene and Sandy Dickson; and Remington Tufflips as himself.
