Big Nate follows a precocious 11-year-old boy named Nate and his best friends as they navigate sixth grade with humor and style. Nate's misadventures will begin with an exclusive look at Big Nate during the halftime presentation of Nickelodeon and CBS Sports' slime-filled NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon, airing Sunday, Jan. 16 at 4:30 PM ET.

Paramount+'s Big Nate will feature brand-new original storylines centered on Nate, 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 Wright 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 (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) guest stars as Brad Gunter, a prankster of epic proportions and Nate's inspiration, and Daniel Jacobs (All Hail King Julien: Exiled) 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.
