The short-lived live-action series Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide was among the Nickelodeon classics introduced to Netflix in the United States in June 2022. Seasons 1-2 were added to the service, but why wasn’t Season 3? Will Season 3 ever be released on Netflix? The answer is most likely no.
Netflix surprisingly licenced four key Nickelodeon live-action series, including All That, Zoey 101, Kenan & Kal, and, of course, Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide. The show was created by Scott Fellows and stars Devon Werkheiser, Lindsey Shaw, and Daniel Curtis Lee.
According to IMDbPro, the show was the second most popular of the four, and, like the other three, Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide did not include all of its seasons. As you may be aware, the Nick show aired 54 episodes over three seasons between 2004 and 2007. Netflix presently has seasons 1 and 2, each of which includes 33 episodes, leaving a gap of 21 episodes that is unlikely to be filled.
Many Nickelodeon shows have done it, including iCarly, Fairly OddParents, The Thundermans, Victorious, and others. As a result, season 3 is unlikely to be released on Netflix. The same is true for Zoey 101’s lost seasons and the other shows Netflix licenced.
Instead, if you want to view Season 3 of Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide, you’ll need a Paramount+ subscription, as the third season is only available through that programme (unless you want to buy the show via a VOD service such as iTunes or Google Play).
What you don’t need to be concerned about is the show leaving Netflix quickly, as we’ve seen with numerous licenced properties on Netflix in recent years. We’ve learnt that the other Nick shows have been licenced to Netflix for two years, which means you’ll be able to watch Declassified School Survival Guide until at least June 2024.
