YouTube sensation “Baby shark” is going to be a cartoon on Nickelodeon.

Nickelodeon announced it is teaming up with SmartStudy, the company behind Pinkfong, the Korean entertainment brand that made the song.

“Baby Shark has captured the imagination of millions of fans around the world, so it’s no surprise it’s one of the top 10 most-viewed videos on YouTube ever,” said Ramsey Naito, Executive Vice President, Nickelodeon Animation. “At the heart of any popular piece of content is a terrific character, and we have a great opportunity to further explore the world of Baby Shark and follow this family through some great animated adventures on Nickelodeon.”

Baby Shark became a breakout sensation when it launched on YouTube in November 2015.

Since then, it’s gotten nearly 3 billion views and recorded a 20-week-streak on the Billboard Hot 100.

So when will the song make its way back to your living rooms?
