A fifth episode of the Nickelodeon documentary Quiet On Set: The Dark Side Of Kids TV will air in April. Here are the details.

Quiet On Set: The Dark Side Of Kids TV has now aired in the US and on Monday it was made available in the UK, streaming on Discovery Plus.

The four part-documentary detailed various allegations of abuse and bullying in a toxic work environment, from writers of The Amanda Show and former child stars who appeared on various Nickelodeon shows. Much of the documentary was dedicated to examining the work of Dan Schneider, whose shows included Zoey 101, iCarly and VictoriousiCarly star Jennette McCurdy published her memoir I’m Glad My Mom Died in 2022, in which she detailed instances of abuse attributed to a figure she called The Creator.

The biggest and most disturbing revelation was the participation of Drake And Josh star Drake Bell, who discussed his horrific sexual abuse at a young age.

It caused an explosion of discussion on social media, and various former Nickolodeon stars have commented on the documentary since its release.

Investigation Discovery has commissioned a fifth episode called Breaking The Silence, which will feature Bell, All That cast members Giovonnie Samuels and Bryan Hearne, Hearne’s mother, Tracey Brown,as well as new voices including former All That cast member Shane Lyons will all discuss their experiences. Journalist Soledad O’Brien will lead the conversation in the new episode to discuss where the industry can go from here.

As reported by Deadline, network boss Jason Sarlanis said, “With Breaking The Silence, we’re digging deeper into the crucial conversations the docuseries ignited and exploring the lingering questions left in their wake to provide further insight from the brave voices who’ve spoken out previously and those who are coming forward again”.

Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV is directed by Mary Robertson and Emma Schwartz.
