Original Nickelodeon USA Press Release via Business Wire:
Nickelodeon has officially given the greenlight to a two-part animated Hey Arnold! TV movie, written and executive produced by the series' original creator Craig Bartlett. First announced in development late last year, the now-greenlit TV movie will pick up where the original series ended, resolving unanswered questions and plotlines, including Arnold finally getting answers about the whereabouts of his missing parents. Produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studios in Burbank, the two hour-long TV movies will debut in 2017.
This year, Nickelodeon will celebrate 25 years of original creator-driven animation in conjunction with the opening of the new Nickelodeon Studios.
