Today the release date for Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie was revealed by Nickelodeon, but will that be the final time we see Arnold? Are Craig Bartlett and his crew interested in doing more?
Bartlett told the crowd today at New York Comic-Con that they’re all hoping they get to. Olivia Hack stated The Jungle Movie is “resolution but not closure.” Its main purpose is typing up the loose end left after Hey Arnold: The Movie. Arnold’s parents went missing when he was an infant, and that mystery has been weighing over the whole series. The Jungle Movie reportedly resolves this mystery, but leaves the door open for further adventures.
“Our goal is to go to series after this,” says Hack. “We’re hoping that’s what happens.”
Bartlett gave a couple vague hints about what a sixth season of Arnold would look like. “[In season six] they would be in sixth grade and so on, and we would just watch them grow. Maybe eventually they’d even become teenagers.”
Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie airs on Nickelodeon November 24, 2017. Nick has not greenlit a sixth season yet and this is all wishful thinking on the crew’s part, but until recently so was this movie. You never know…..
