Nickelodeon India Acquires 'Zig & Sharko' Season 3; Renews Rights for Seasons 1 & 2

Nickelodeon India has acquired the rights to the third season of the popular animated series Zig & Sharko, a French animated slapstick comedy television series that chronicles the conflict between Zig, a hungry brown hyena, and Sharko, a great white shark, who live on a volcanic island, in addition to renewing the rights to the show’s first two seasons! The deal builds on Nick India's long-standing partnership with French animation studio Xilam Animation, and follows the the third seasons' successful debut at MIPCOM 2018.

Update (4/3/2019): Nickelodeon India will premiere Zig & Sharko season three "later this year"!

On the high seas, the beach or an ocean liner, Zig, a island-bound hungry hyena has one thing in mind: dining on Marina, the carefree mermaid. With help from Bernie, a genius hermit-crab, he comes up with the zaniest plans to capture and get to his paws her…but that’s forgetting Marina's devoted pal Sharko, the shark with rippling muscles who will do anything to rescue and protect his mermaid honey!

Zig & Sharko is created and directed by Olivier Jean-Marie and produced by Xilam Animation (Oggy & the Cockroaches). The series made its debut on Canal+ in France on December 21, 2010, followed by its debut on Nickelodeon in India during early 2011. The first two seasons feature 52 x 30' / 156 X 7’ episodes.
