Netflix Readies Another Exclusive With ‘H2O: Just Add Water’ Spin-Off ‘Mako Mermaids’By: Chris Crum - June 25, 2013
Orange is the New Black isn’t the only Netflix exclusive show debuting in July. The company will also launch Mako Mermaids, a spin-off of popular Australian teen snow “H2O: Just Add Water“.
The show will reportedly debut on July 26th. The LA Times reports (in an article tweeted by the official Netflix account) that the show is a result of a deal Netflix struck with Jonathan M. Shiff Productions. Netflix has the rights to go forward with 26 episodes in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Nordics.
The report quotes Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos as saying, “We are thrilled to be the exclusive home of ‘Mako Mermaids’ in all Netflix territories. H2O’ hit an amazing chord with teens around the world who love the clever mixture of action, comedy and romance.”
Netflix currently has 78 episodes of H2O available for streaming, in case you want to get caught up.
