Never fear, Henry Danger’s still here, at least for a little while. Although it’s not being announced as season six renewal, Nickelodeon has ordered 10 additional episodes of its Henry Danger TV show. The increased order will bring the kids comedy well past the 100-episode benchmark, to 117. Whether Henry Danger will be cancelled or renewed beyond that point has not been revealed. One thing to keep in mind is that children’s shows tend to run fewer seasons, and additional episode orders of this size sometimes telegraph that the series is working toward its ending.
A Nickelodeon live-action comedy, Henry Danger follows 13-year-old Henry Hart, the sidekick to a superhero called Captain Man. The cast includes Jace Norman, Cooper Barnes, Riele Downs, Sean Ryan Fox, Ella Anderson, Michael D. Cohen, and Jeffrey Nicholas Brown.
