Plot Synopsis

Based on Lincoln Peirce's children's books and comic strip of the same name, BIG NATE is an animated series that centers on Nate Wright, a sixth-grade kid who has a never-ending need to prove his awesomeness to the world. Whether he's dealing with disasters at home or detention at school, Nate 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. In the series premiere, "The Legend of the Gunting," Nate has multiple detentions on the docket, per usual. But this time he is only one detention away from a fate only whispered about in the halls of P.S. 38. Meanwhile, the unhinged new kid is determined to become Nate's prank partner. Jack Black guest stars as Brad Gunter, a prankster of epic proportions and Nate's inspiration, and Daniel Jacobs lends his voice as Bentley Carter, the new kid at P.S. 38 eager to wreak havoc through the school on teachers and students alike. BIG NATE made its linear television debut on Monday, September 5, 2022 at 7:30pm ET/PT on Nickelodeon.
Season 2 of BIG NATE premiered on Friday, July 7, 2023 on Paramount+, which released the first 10 episodes of the new season. This season, Nate Wright and his misfit group of friends tackle new adventures, face epic challenges and unleash their boundless imaginations at P.S. 38. This new season pushes the boundaries of visual creativity, featuring episodes with animation styles including stop-motion, shadow box theater, photogrammetry and claymation. With laughter, friendship and heaps of Nate's signature mischief, season two promises to be bigger, bolder, and funnier than ever. New guest voices for Season 2 include: Laraine Newman (Ridley Jones) as Marge, Nate's grandma whose misguided optimism has clearly been inherited by her grandson; Matthew Lillard as Agent Fish, one of Nate's comic character creations -- an anxious FBI agent with a literal fish head; JB Blanc as Agent Moose, one of Nate's comic character creations -- a confident FBI agent with a literal moose head; Maya Aoki Tuttle as Cammie, the kind of popular kid who actually has confidence; and Stephanie Sheh as Ruby, the new kid at P.S. 38 and Nate's dream girl, but he doesn't know that yet.
