“Chris Savino has created a very engaging and relatable world through the animated series The Loud House, which is a proven hit with our audience,” said James Stephenson, SVP Animation and Games, Nickelodeon. “The season three order is a demonstration of Nickelodeon’s continued commitment to bringing fresh stories to our viewers.”

The Loud House is based on an animated short of the same name from Nickelodeon’s annual Animated Shorts Program. It is the first series to be greenlit out of the global program which is designed to mine and cultivate a new generation of creative talent.
