Nickelodeon announced that it has greenlit a 20-episode second season of Sanjay and Craig, an original animated series that follows the misadventures of Sanjay, an excitable and irreverent 12-year-old boy (Maulik Pancholy) and his best friend Craig, a smooth-talking snake and master of disguise (Chris Hardwick). Together, they embark on awesome kid-inspired quests that are at times totally ridiculous, absolutely gross and weirdly sweet. The series is created by Jim Dirschberger, Jay Howell and Andreas Trolf. Dirschberger, Howell and Thurop Van Orman are co-executive producers, and award-winning animation team Chris Viscardi and Will McRobb return as executive producers. The series will make its season one debut on the network’s international channels in the fall.
“Sanjay and Craig is a proven hit with our audience and we are excited to continue the journey with a talented creative team who tell engaging stories filled with outrageous adventures and relatable characters,” said Russell Hicks, President, Content Development and Production, Nickelodeon. “Our burgeoning slate of animated properties is a testament to our legacy and our continued commitment to deliver creator-driven content that fuels the Nickelodeon Animation Studio.
The series features the voice talents of Pancholy and Hardwick in the lead roles with additional cast members that include: Linda Cardellini as Megan; Matt Jones as Hector; Tony Hale as Mr. Noodman; Grey DeLisle as Darlene and Sandy Dickson; and Remington Tufflips as himself.
