Nickelodeon Netherlands to Premiere 'Lost in Oz' on Monday 18th November 2019

Nickelodeon Benelux has acquired the rights to Lost in Oz, and will premiere Amazon Studio's popular CG-animated series on Nickelodeon Netherlands (Nederland) on Monday 18th November 2019 at 18:25 uur. Following launch, new episodes will continue to air weekdays at 18:25 uur on Nick Nederland. It's currently unknown whether the series will also air on Nickelodeon Flanders and Nickelodeon Wallonia around the same time.


Lost in Oz — inspired by The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the magical world created by author L. Frank Baum, 12-year-old Dorothy E. Gale discovers her mother’s magical travel journal hidden beneath the floorboards of their Kansas home. The book triggers a tornado, which rips her house from its foundation and transports Dorothy and her dog, Toto, to Emerald City, a bustling, modern, metropolis. In order to get home, Dorothy learns she must acquire every element on Oz’s “periodic table of magic” – while the city faces the worst magic drought in eons! Along the way, Dorothy and Toto meet unlikely allies in West, Ojo, Reigh the Lion, Scarecrow, and Glinda the Good, who are each eager to help, but struggling with their own problems. Together, they navigate the magical landscape of Oz while undergoing their own unique journeys of self-discovery.


Aimed at kids ages 6-11, the series originally premiered on Amazon Video on August 7, 2017, and ran for 26 episodes over two seasons, ending its run on June 8, 2018.
