Nickelodeon USA has announced the very exciting news that, following the super sneak-peek of Cousins For Life on Saturday, November 24, Nick USA will fully premiere the network's brand-new live-action comedy series on Saturday, January 5, 2019!

Update (12/2): To celebrate the upcoming premiere of Cousins For Life, Nickelodeon has digitally premiered two additional full episodes of the network's brand-new comedy, which fans can watch on nick.com, along with the sneak-peek Nick USA aired on Saturday, November 24!

In episode two, "Space Invader", Ivy and Stuart's life is disrupted after their dads have a disagreement & Clark ends up moving into their hangout space in the garage. It's now their missions to resolve their dads' argument and reclaim their space.

In episode seven, "Eyes on the Prize", to help Leaf's hockey team Ivy and Stuart hold a raffle to raise money for new equipment, but when Stuart overpromises on securing a huge grand prize the cousins must scramble to figure out a solution before a raffle winner is drawn!


Cousins For Life centers on 12-year-old cousins Stuart (Dallas Young) and Ivy (Scarlet Spencer), best friends who come from very different backgrounds, who have to learn to navigate life under one roof with their families.

After Stuart’s mom is deployed overseas, his fun-loving dad Clark (Ishmel Sahid) decides to move the family to Portland to live with his uptight brother Lewis (Ron G.) and his family, which includes Stuart’s confident, socially active cousin Ivy and her younger, overly-curious brother Leaf (Micah Abbey). Now living in a brand new city, Stuart embarks on a variety of endeavors with Ivy that lead to hilarious adventures.


Although the cousins do not always see eye-to-eye, Ivy and Stuart learn they are better together, and when they team up, they are unstoppable. The series will also feature Emma Shannon (Black-ish) as Millie.

In the series premiere, "Movin’ In" (#101), when cousins Ivy and Stuart find themselves living under the same roof they learn that they are better together, and when they team up, they are unstoppable!

Cousins For Life is filmed at The Burbank Studios in Burbank, California - the same studio facility where Henry Danger is filmed, as where many iconic TV shows have been filmed, including Saved by the Bell and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air - earlier this summer.



Greenlit for an initial 20 episodes, Cousins For Life comes from veteran creators and executive producers Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert (Austin & Ally, All That).

Watch the first episode of Cousins For Life on Nickelodeon, nick.com and the Nick App today!

Update (11/27) - From Calabasas High School via the Los Angeles Times' HS Insider:

‘Cousins For Life’ offers messages of individualism, family love and total chaos


Cast of "Cousins for Life" (Credit: Nickelodeon Animation Studios)

ickelodeon is bringing a new cast of cousins to the table with the new series Cousins for Life. Actors Scarlet Spencer (Ivy), Ron G. (Lewis), Ishmel Sahid (Clark), Dallas Young (Stuart) and Micah Abbey (Leaf) bring an unorthodox and interesting dynamic to the greater Nickelodeon family with crazy schemes and the tales of the love and bond shared by family.

Viewers can expect the message “love your family no matter what happens with them,” Young said.

“Just love them because one day you might need them and that’s what happened to us. We need each other every single day even though we have rough times,” he said.

The cast is able to relate to the story; from messages surrounding the importance of appreciating one’s family to the unique bonds each character shares and has to overcome. While the show’s actors are different themselves, much like their characters are to each other, they admit that their differences are what make them a great team.

While Abbey spends his time on the basketball court and Spencer spends her moments off-camera practicing her singing voice, Sahid spends his time… not singing. The “Cousins for Life” cast, each incredibly unique, is able to bond like cousins and siblings, exhibiting exactly what the show is all about.

“Even if you are different from some of your other family members, that’s what makes it great,” Spencer said. “If all of us were the same, I don’t think we would be as strong of a cast as we are.”
