‘HexVet’ Adaptation Coming To Nickelodeon

Get ready for another Boom! Studios adaptation, this time, from Nickelodeon. The network will take us to the world of Willow Whisper with an adaptation of the KaBOOM! story, HexVet. The preschool series, gets the green light for 20 episodes of a 2D/CGI hybrid animated series, likely headed to Nick Jr.

The graphic novels, from cartoonist Sam Davies, “follows unlikely best friends Nan and Clarion as they navigate life’s weird and wacky challenges, while apprenticing to be magical veterinarians for fantastical creatures.”

Nicole Dubuc (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, The Rocketeer) will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Frank Molieri (Transformers: Rescue Bots) serves as co-executive producer along with executive producers Stephen Christy (Just Beyond) and Ross Richie (2 Guns), with Mette Norkjaer serving as co-producer, for BOOM! Studios. Kendall Michele Haney will be the story editor. Eryk Casemiro, Executive Vice President, Nickelodeon Animation, Global Series Content, will oversee the production for Nickelodeon Animation with assistance from Kate Crownover as the Executive In Charge. Paramount Consumer Products will also lead worldwide licensing, which means we could see some toys in the future.

“The high-stakes adventures, wild antics and heartfelt camaraderie Nan and Clarion in the HexVet graphic novels are all great qualities we look for in an animated series,” said Ramsey Naito, President, Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Animation. “It’s incredibly exciting to expand the HexVet world with an original series that will deepen the connection young readers have with the novels and capture the imagination of new fans of all ages.”

I’m sure there will be many more updates to come, so keep checking back.
