Nickelodeon has acquired the rights to the twins’ “TV library,” including four series, seven TV movies and two music videos starring the sisters, the network announced Thursday. The programs will air on Nickelodeon throughout the rest of the year, starting with the series So Little Time, which premieres on Monday, April 27 at 7:30/6:30c.
“Nickelodeon has been at the forefront of kids entertainment for decades,” Mary-Kate Olsen said in a statement. “We believe this is the perfect home for our library.”
(Unfortunately not included in the acquisition: The feature films It Takes Two and New York Minute, and the twins’ ABC show Two of a Kind.)
Here’s a definitive guide to the Olsen twins’ video library coming to Nickelodeon:
