Nickelodeon Africa Slated to Premiere 'Big Nate' on NickToons During Early 2022

Nicktoons Africa is slated to premiere Nickelodeon's brand new CG-animated series Big Nate during early 2022! The news was revealed by MultiChoice Group, whose satellite television providers DStv and GOtv carry the ViacomCBS portfolio of channels in Africa.

"On NickToons, Big Nate follows 11-year-old prankster Nate and his best friends as they navigate sixth grade with humor and style," reads the synopsis.

Based on the best-selling children’s books, written and drawn by acclaimed author and cartoonist Lincoln Peirce, this new TV series will feature brand-new original storylines centered on Nate, a precocious 11-year-old boy, and his mischievous shenanigans that usually result in disaster, detention or both. Big Nate was slated to premiere during September 2021 on Nickelodeon, however, it looks like Nick has postponed the launch of the series.

A listing for the upcoming book Big Nate: Aloha! earlier this summer revealed that Nickelodeon may be planning to launch Big Nate on the linear Nick TV channel and on the Paramount+ streaming service in the U.S.

According to the synopsis for Big Nate: Aloha! on the Barnes & Noble websiteBig Nate is a "[s]oon to be an animated series with Paramount+ and Nickelodeon!", which suggests that the series will debut on both platforms.

At the moment, it's unclear on whether the series will bow on both platforms at the same time, or on one platform before the other. Nickelodeon and ViacomCBS are increasingly moving towards a launch strategy where a new series debuts on Paramount Plus prior to premiering on linear TV. Nickelodeon's Rugrats revival and SpongeBob SquarePants spin-off Kamp Koral launched on the streaming service earlier this year, prior to their linear premieres on Nickelodeon, and Nickelodeon's upcoming CG-animated Star Trek: Prodigy will bow on Paramount+ on October 28 ahead of its TV debut.

Nickelodeon is also producing a new animated series based on Max & the Midknights, a second best-selling children’s book series written and drawn by Peirce.
