Invader Zim Returns to Finish the Job In New TV Movie
Apr 11, 2017
Invader Zim, one of the most uniquely weird and beloved cartoons, is set to return to Nickelodeon in an all new television movie! Announced via the video above from Nickelodeon Animation, it's confirmed that the principal cast will return: Richard Horvitz (Zim), Rikki Simons (GIR), Andy Berman (Dib), and Melissa Fahn (Gaz).
Invader Zim joins other Nickelodeon classics like Hey Arnold! and Rocko's Modern Life as they set to return later this year. The show initially debuted on Nickelodeon in 2001 and featured Zim, an alien invader, who set out to conquer earth to curry favor with his home world. While Zim discovered he didn't have the aptitude to conquer worlds, he and his companion GIR won over audiences as they set out to integrate into human communities to learn more about their would-be servants.
Although Invader Zim only ran for two seasons, you can head to your local comic shop and read the Oni Press series based on the cartoon!
