Invader Zim just joined a growing list of classic Nickelodeon cartoon shows getting new TV movies.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the wonderfully weird and satirical Invader Zim is coming back to TV for a 90-minute movie featuring the original voice cast of Richard Horvitz (Zim), Rikki Simons (GIR), Andy Berman (Dib), and Melissa Fahn (Gaz). With the news, Invader Zim joins Rocko’s Modern Life and Hey Arnold! in Nickelodeon’s upcoming TV movie lineup.
The 90-minute movie will focus on Zim—an alien attempting to live among our strange human species while also plotting against us—who has a new (probably delusional) plan to take over the world. Nickelodeon confirmed to Polygon that show creator Jhonen Vasquez is on board for the movie, though he’s previously assured fans that Zim wouldn’t be getting a reboot.
He had this to say on Tuesday afternoon.
Believe me, if any new ZIM stuff was happening I would tell you bigly. I have the greatest truths. Fake news! Sad! My neck is gross.— Jhonen Vasquez (@JhonenV) April 4, 2017
Like lots of our favorite 1990s and early 2000s Nickelodeon shows, Invader Zim has retained a cult base of loyal fans. After more than a decade of waiting, they’re sure to be excited about the return of Zim, even if it’s for a one-time TV special. They will have some more waiting to do. Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie is due out later this year, and Rocko is in production ahead of Invader Zim with no announced release date.
