This evergreen classic now boasts 182 episodes produced, four TV movies and three theatrical releases. Series 8 (season 8) - featuring 26 brand new episodes - will premiere in 2019 to celebrate 15 years since the launch. It's currently unknown whether Nickelodeon will acquire the rights to Winx Club season eight, like previous seasons. Spin-off series, World of Winx currently airs on Nickelodeon Greece.

The fantasy animated series Regal Academy will return to the conference, showcasing its cast of colourful characters. The series, currently in its second season, airs on Nickelodeon channels worldwide.

Maggie & Bianca Fashion Friends is a huge Italian success story, with millions of fans across the country.

In addition to airing in Italy, Maggie & Bianca Fashion Friends has been picked up by Nickelodeon Poland (Polska), Nickelodeon Netherlands (Nederland), Nickelodeon Belgium (België; Flanders) and Nickelodeon Greece.

The Moodboards – the band from the show – have also been entertaining crowds throughout Italy on a sell-out live tour. In addition, the show has reached millions worldwide and has also inspired two TV movies, two music CDs from Sony.

Finally, 44 Cats is a Rainbow production in collaboration with Antoniano Bologna. The show is Rainbow’s latest exciting TV series - a sumptuous 52 x 13’ CGI preschool comedy series that follows the daily adventures of Lampo, Milady, Pilou, and Polpetta – cats who are all part of a music band named The Buffycats.
