Nickelodeon is an American children's television channel that co-produced Winx Club from 2010 to 2014.


Nickelodeon was founded in 1977. It is usually simply called Nick and was originally named Pinwheel. It is owned by Viacom, which also purchased minority stake in Rainbow S.r.l. in early 2011, and is aimed at children from 7 to 17 years. As from late 2011 it acquired the airing rights for Winx Club from Rainbow S.r.l. for the majority of English-speaking regions after 4KidsTV lost the airing rights for Winx Club for the American audience.

Involvement in Winx ClubEdit

On September 2, 2010, Nickelodeon announced it had acquired the rights to the animated series Winx Club for broadcast on the flagship American channel and several of its international channels. The channel co-produced the fifth and sixth seasons of the series, and has also gained the rights to air the existing episodes of the TV series and two theatrical films. On June 27, the first of four one-hour specials, created to summarize the first two seasons, aired, with the second set to air on August 1. Season three aired in full when the specials finished, with season four right after. Both the specials and the full seasons features a new voice cast and a re-vamped animation style, slightly different from the original.

In 2014 Romi Dames, the official voice actress for Musa in the Nickelodeon dub, announced on Twitter that Nickelodeon will no longer be airing Winx Club after Season 6. This most likely means that Nickelodeon will not be involved in the future of the show after Season 6.
