‘Tim Rex in Space’ Show

Paramount Global has been in the deal news with its big merger with David Ellison’s Skydance Media. But on Wednesday, two of the company’s kids brands unveiled a deal of their own. Nickelodeon unveiled new animated series Tim Rex in Space, its first global co-production with Channel 5’s Milkshake!

The show will premiere in 2025 on Nickelodeon channels in the U.S. and internationally on Milkshake! in the U.K. 

Tim Rex in Space follows a Tyrannosaurus Rex (T-Rex) named Tim, his big brother Tommy, little sister Tia, and triceratops bestie Kai as “they tackle kid-shaped adventures with dino-sized solutions in space,” according to a show description. “Tim and his family live in a unique world comprised of a cluster of asteroids that make up the town of Rumbleton. This intergalactic environment is a quintessential 21st-century suburban town, with each asteroid hosting family homes, cafés, shops, parks, and even a beach. All asteroids are connected by a network of slides, ziplines and trampolines, but can also easily be reached on a quick rocket ride.”

The series features Cassian Swan-Mckee as Tim, Ace Gil as Tommy, Hope Delaney as Tia, and Jamie Smart as Kai. The voice cast also includes Stephen Alan Yorke, Nim Miller, Sophia Nomvete, Jessica Robinson, Alex Carter, and Lorraine Bruce.
