Big Nate, from Nickelodeon Animation Studio, will feature brand-new original storylines centered on the precocious 11-year-old Nate Wright and his best friends. Disasters at home? Detention at school? With a never-ending need to prove his awesomeness, Nate's ready to navigate sixth grade with humor and style—and a world of cartoons that he creates!

A stellar lineup of actors lends their voice talent to the beloved characters of Big Nate:

Ben Giroux (Henry Danger, Danger Force, Hart of Dixie) as Nate Wright: Sixth-grader Nate Wright is funny, entertaining, and even a little insecure, but he's not about to let the rest of the world know that.

Dove Cameron (Descendants, Liv and Maddie) as Ellen Wright: Ellen is Nate's older sister and the object of much angst for Nate. If Ellen has flaws, Nate's never seen them, but he's determined to find them anyway.

Rob Delaney (Catastrophe, Deadpool 2, Hobbs & Shaw) as Martin Wright: Martin is a great single dad to Nate and Ellen, but life has not gone exactly as he planned. Parenting two kids is tough, and he's doing it alone.

Bryce Charles (Blackish, Young Love) as Dee Dee Holloway: Dee Dee is smart, excitable, and able to pull off whatever the boys are incapable (or unwilling) to do, which makes her an invaluable member of the group.

Daniel MK Cohen (LEGO City Adventures, Body of Proof) as Francis Pope: Francis tries to keep Nate's wild ideas in check, or at least keep Nate out of unnecessary trouble. They've been inseparable since they met in kindergarten, and Francis is the friend Nate counts on the most.

Arnie Pantoja (Final Fantasy VII Remake, Trolls: The Beat Goes On) as Teddy Ortiz: Teddy is Nate's main co-conspirator, a partner in chaos always willing to go along with Nate's crazy schemes. But if there's a chance they'll get caught, Teddy has an amazing way of disappearing.

Charlie Schlatter (The Loud House, Justice League Action) as Chad Applewhite: Chad is a sweet, harmless kid, and one of Nate's good friends. Like Teddy, Chad is willing to help Nate with all his schemes, he's just not quite bright enough to run away when things go sideways.

Kevin Michael Richardson (The Simpsons, American Dad) as Principal Nichols: Principal Nichols is a good guy who struggles with being an authority figure. He tries to act like a friend to his students, but he always comes off as an adult who's trying way too hard to be cool.

Carolyn Hennesy (Lego Star Wars: All-Stars, True Blood) as Mrs. Godfrey: Affectionately called the "Creature Teacher" by Nate, Mrs. Godfrey more than lives up to the name. The woman is perpetually on edge and always waiting for someone—usually Nate— to step out of line.
