Nickelodeon Orders 10 Additional Episodes of 'Henry Danger'

Nickelodeon has announced the exciting news that it has ordered an additional 10 episodes for its hit live-action comedy series Henry Danger, the number-one live-action show on TV with K2-11 and K6-11. The order brings Henry Danger's series’ total to 127 episodes to date, including a 40-episode total for season 5, which is currently airing.

The news follows Nickelodeon greenlighting an additional ten-episodes for season five in December 2018. The recent episode orders cements Henry Danger as Nickelodeon’s longest-running live-action sitcom.

Henry Danger follows the adventures of Henry Hart (Jace Norman) who gets selected by superhero Captain Man (Cooper Barnes) to be his apprentice. After promising to keep his new identity a secret, Henry must navigate a double life balancing the challenges of high school with the crazy adventures of a crime fighter. The series also stars Riele Downs as “Charlotte Page,” Sean Ryan Fox as “Jasper Dunlop,” Ella Anderson as “Piper Hart,” Michael D. Cohen as “Schwoz Schwartz,” and Jeffrey Nicholas Brown as “Jake Hart.”

To date Nickelodeon has three live-action sitcom that have eclipsed one hundred episodes: The Thundermans reached its 100-episode milestone in 2018; iCarly hit 100 episodes in 2012.

The news comes as Nickelodeon's new prank series The Substitute got off to a strong start in its Monday, April 1, 2019 series debut.

The premiere episode drew four million total viewers across all four of its airings Monday, and scored big with kids 2-11 and 6-11. The Substitute, the first series to air from the network’s recently announced content slate, ranked as the top show with Kids 6-11 in its time period across all TV, and it scored year-over-year double and triple-digit increases with Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11, respectively. It averaged a 1.9/454K with Kids 2-11–up 36% over last year; a 1.4/212K with Kids 6-11–up 100%; and 866K total viewers, up 14%. Additional airings also ranked as the top telecasts with Kids 6-11 in their respective time periods (4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. [ET/PT]), according to the network and Nielsen.

The inaugural episode of Nick’s new hidden-camera prank show guest-starred Henry Danger's Jace Norman as an eccentric substitute taking over a class of unsuspecting kids.

From the producers of Undercover Boss, The Substitute is a hidden-camera show featuring celebrities who are transformed by a team of special effects artists to go undercover as substitute teachers, surprising classes of unsuspecting students. It is the first new series premiere under the leadership of Brian Robbins, since he took over as President of Viacom’s Nickelodeon Group last fall.

The Substitute is produced by Industrial Media’s The Intellectual Property Corporation, and Eli Holzman and Aaron Saidman (Undercover Boss), with Mike Harney serving as showrunner.
