The Nickelodeon Animation series returns later this month with 9 all-new episodes following the continued misadventures of Nate as he pursues his dreams to become a singer, save a pregnant lizard, and take spring break to the next level; 10 more episodes ordered for previously announced Season 2, coming in 2023.
Paramount+ has shared an exclusive teaser trailer for the return of Big Nate from Nickelodeon Animation, with nine all-new episodes hitting the streamer on August 19. The series is based on the best-selling children’s books and comic strip written and illustrated by acclaimed author and cartoonist Lincoln Peirce.
In the new episodes, our young hero, Nate (hero…?), is back with his continued (mis)adventures as he follows his dream to become a singer, save a pregnant lizard, and take spring break to the next level. What else should a tween aspire to?
The CG animated series features the exploits of Nate, a sixth-grade kid who has a never-ending need to prove his awesomeness to the world. Whether dealing with disasters at home or detention at school, Nate Wright is no stranger to a challenge. Luckily, he’s able to express himself through the world of cartoons that he creates. Charming, mischievous, and a magnet for misadventure, Nate always finds a way to turn trouble into fun.
