Henry Danger spin-off series Danger Force premieres at Nickelodeon on Monday.
The series by Christopher J. Nowak centres around action heroes in training.
“A key part of our content strategy is to grow original franchises like Henry Danger by expanding their worlds through new characters and more high-stakes adventures,” said Brian Robbins, President, Kids & Family Entertainment, ViacomCBS Domestic Media Networks. “We’re spinning off our Henry Danger mega-hit into Danger Force, where a new set of characters join members of the original cast for a wholly new take on this long-running series.”
The new series stars two of the most beloved characters from Henry Danger, Ray/Captain Man (Cooper Barnes) and Schwoz (Michael D. Cohen), and introduces four new superheroes-in-training, Chapa (Havan Flores), Miles (Terrence Little Gardenhigh), Mika (Dana Heath) and Bose (Luca Luhan).
The four teens are recruited to attend Swellview Academy for the Gifted (SW.A.G. for short), a school conceived by Captain Man and brought to life by Schwoz, after having been accidentally mutated in the fight to save Swellview. While there, the kids must learn to harness their frequently troublesome and sometimes uncontrollable superpowers as they begin to fight crime. Despite the dangerous circumstances of their new lives, the superheroes must keep their real identities a secret from their friends, families and the villains who are out to destroy them.
In the premiere episode, The Danger Force Awakens, Captain Man has a new crew of superhero sidekicks, Danger Force, but when he tells them there’s a “crime drought” in Swellview, they begin to suspect that he’s fighting crime without them.
Following a series of unfortunate events, largely due to the Danger Force not yet able to control their powers and Mika’s sonic scream manifesting, they mess up in the first battle and accidentally free Frankini (Frankie Grande) and his fellow prisoners Goomer, the Beekeeper, Dr. Minyak, Jeff, the Time Jerker, Jack Frittleman and more, from Swellview Prison.
Danger Force is created and executive produced by Christopher J. Nowak (Henry Danger, Sam & Cat), with both Barnes and Jace Norman (Henry Danger) serving as producers for the series.
Monday, November 2, at 5:30pm with new episodes airing Mondays to Thursdays until Thursday, November 13, on Nickelodeon.
