Sixth season of Paw Patrol Greenlit alongside fifth season of Blaze and the Monster Machines, third season of Rusty Rivets and second season of Top Wing.

Nickelodeon has renewed some of the biggest hits in pre-school TV: Paw Patrol, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Rusty Rivets and Top Wing. The renewals are part of the network’s largest pre-school content pipeline ever, featuring more than 300 returning hit shows and new series for the 2018-2019 season.

Nickelodeon is currently home to eight of the top 10 pre-school shows on all TV, and ranks as the number-one basic cable network for Kids 2-5, Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11 (YTD.)

In the sixth season of Paw Patrol (26 half-hour episodes, produced by Spin Master Entertainment), Chase, Marshall, Rubble, Skye, Rocky, Zuma and Everest transform into the Super Paw team of superheroes. Paw Patrol features a curriculum that focuses on citizenship, social skills and problem solving.

Season five of Blaze and the Monster Machines (20 half-hour episodes) sees Monster truck Blaze and his eight-year-old driver AJ travel over land, under the sea and into orbit as Blaze transforms into new vehicles designed to push the limit while helping his friends cross the finish line. The series is the first pre-school show on TV to comprehensively cover all areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) in every episode.

In the third season of Rusty Rivets (26 half-hour episodes, produced by Spin Master Entertainment), Rusty and Ruby go on all-new, larger-than-life adventures as they discover new locations with their robotic dinosaur builds. Inspired by the DIY culture of the maker movement, Rusty Rivets helps preschoolers gain confidence and fuel their creativity with a focus on inventing, creating and problem solving.

Season two of Top Wing (26 half-hour episodes, produced by 9 Story Media Group) follow the cadets – Swift, Penny, Rod and Brody – as they graduate to a new level and tackle all-new, action-packed rescues on land, through the sea and in the air. Top Wing features storylines that help pre-schoolers build self-confidence, and includes lessons about perseverance and hard work.
