Set in the fictional city of Royal Woods, Michigan, The Loud House centers on 11-year-old Lincoln Loud, who lives in a house with his ten sisters - bossy eldest sister Lori, unintelligent Leni, aspiring rock star Luna, jokester and comedian Luan, energetic athlete Lynn, gloomy emo Lucy, picture perfect beauty pageant Lola as opposed to her care-free mud-loving tomboy twin Lana, intellectual genius Lisa, and baby Lily. While being true that his room is a closet, there's only one bathroom, and his sisters drive him crazy, Lincoln always finds the solution with the help of his best friend Clyde McBride—one problem at a time. Each episode has Lincoln speaking to the viewer about life lessons within your family—especially when it's big.
The series was created by veteran animator Chris Savino. The show was inspired by Savino's childhood. During early development, Savino originally wrote the characters as rabbits, with the number of siblings being 26. Someone at Nickelodeon suggested that the characters instead be humans, an idea that Savino initially declined on. He eventually relented after thinking about it some more and also reduced the number of kids to 11. As a nod to the original idea, Lincoln's stuffed bunny, Bun-Bun, is modeled after Lincoln's original rabbit design.
The first season originally consisted of 13 episodes (26 segments in total), but Nickelodeon changed it to 26 (52 segments in total).
Two episodes ("A Tale of Two Tables"/"The Sweet Spot" and "Hand-Me-Downer"/"Sleuth or Consequences") were released digitally on Nick.com, the Nick app, Nick's video-on-demand service and digital platforms in April 2016, a month before the series' official debut on May 2.
Brand-new episodes would air every week at 5:00 pm EST, before a brand-new episode of another show.
The second season was greenlit on May 25, 2016 and consists of 26 episodes, beginning on November 9, 2016 with "Intern for the Worse"/"The Old and the Restless" and ended on December 1, 2017 with "Snow Way Out"/"Snow Way Down".
On October 19, 2016, The Loud House was renewed for a third season, which will also consist of 26 episodes, and will premiere in early 2018.
Jam Filled Entertainment, a Canadian animation studio based in Ottawa that was owned by Boat Rocker Media, provides the animation for the series. The animation is done by using Toon Boom Harmony.
Every episode in the first season was directed by Chris Savino; "The Price of Admission" and "One Flu Over the Loud House", as well as the second season's "The Old and the Restless", "Vantastic Voyage", and "Patching Things Up" were co-directed by Kyle Marshall. However, not all episodes were directed by Savino; both digital shorts, "Slice of Life" and "Deuces Wild!" (Savino only wrote the shorts), and a few season two episodes were directed solely by Marshall.
On October 19, 2017, Nickelodeon fired Savino due to allegations of sexual harassment, and continued to work on the show without him. Kyle Marshall will be the sole main director of the series unless a replacement for Savino would be hired to direct. "Legends", "Read Aloud"/"Not a Loud", "Anti Social", and "Snow Way Down", directed by Savino, were released after his termination.

Home video release
To date, only one Loud House DVD has been released thus far. Titled Welcome to the Loud House - Season 1, Volume 1, it contained the first 13 episodes of the series. It is unknown if and when a second DVD will be released.
A free comic book entitled Lincoln Loud's ABCs of Getting the Last Slice was released exclusively at the San Diego Comic-Con in 2015. It featured Lincoln and his sisters fighting to see who gets the last slice of pizza. It was adapted as a webisode on Nick.com, titled "Slice of Life". A second comic, titled Deuces Wild, was created for the 2016 Comic-Con, and was also adapted as an animated short. Comics based on the show were planned to appear in upcoming issues of Nickelodeon Magazine; however, when Papercutz stopped publishing the magazine, the comics instead appeared in the Nickelodeon Pandemonium graphic novels.
The Loud House has received favorable reviews from viewers and critics, with the praise focused on its casting, animation, character portrayals, and writing. Since then, it has been considered to be one of the best modern Nicktoons to date, alongside Harvey Beaks.
