DHX Media has struck a new deal with Viacom Media Networks that will see season six of kids' series Johnny Test air on Nickelodeon Germany.

The children's channel has also renewed its deal for seasons one and two of the show and the network has secured all six seasons, with 117 episodes in total.

Johnny Test - aimed at six to 11-year-olds - has seen success on Nickelodeon Germany with over 14.6 million viewers tuning in to the show since 2009.

Season six will celebrate the 100th episode milestone of the escapades of Johnny and his brainiac sisters, with a special episode written by creator Scott Fellows, executive producer of popular titles including The Fairly Odd parents.

Wiebke Hoefer, senior director of sales for Europe at DHX Media, said: "DHX Media prides itself on producing and managing dynamic properties, and Johnny Test is a fantastic example of this.

"We are thrilled that the show will be broadcast to existing and new fans on Nickelodeon in Germany."

Victor Coolman, vice president of programming, Nickelodeon, Viacom International Media Networks Northern Europe, added: "For a broadcaster nothing is better than having a show that is successful on air, but on top of that, also stays in production over the course of the years.

"Johnny Test has been a solid performer for us for more than six years, and we are looking forward to continuing that for many more."
