Nickelodeon has just announced that it's teaming up with the LEGO Group to bring a new CG animated series to television that your LEGO obsessed child is going to love! The children's programming network announced that LEGO City Adventures will premiere on Saturday, June 22 at 11:30 am and will debut new episodes each week that will keep your kids laughing along with their favorite LEGO City characters.
The series will feature 10 episodes that will focus on life in LEGO City where everything isn't always awesome, but it's definitely always fun. “LEGO CITY is our strongest evergreen property globally, and for the first time we are leveraging episodic content to establish characters and personalities that bring the city to life,” said Jill Wilfert, Vice President, Licensing & Entertainment for LEGO Group. “We’re thrilled to partner with Nickelodeon for this important evolution of LEGO CITY given how well positioned they are to engage children and families with relevant programming.”
Now not only can your children use their imaginations to build their own LEGO cities at home but they can find inspiration from the animated series. The series follows the residents of LEGO City, from the firefighters to the police officers to everybody else in the community as they are forced to work together when a mysterious "master criminal" arrives in town.
Characters in the LEGO City world that your children are going to love to watch include Sergeant Duke DeTain (Joe Zieja, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4), an overly heroic cop; Freya McCloud (Misty Lee, DC Super Hero Girls), a crisis-ready fire chief; Shirley Keeper (Alex Cazares, The Loud House), the grumpy street sweeper; Harl Hubbs (Daniel MK Cohen, Fixed), an overeager handyman; Tippy Dorman (James Arnold Taylor, Star Wars: The Clone Wars), an expert doorman with a secret; Solomon Fleck (Roger Craig Smith, Avengers Assemble), the dedicated city mayor; Percival “Wheelie” Wheeler (Mick Lauer, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal), a skateboarding police chief and more, according to a press release.
The series will debut in the United States on June 22nd and will then be featured internationally throughout the fall of 2019.
