Nickelodeon is giving kids a peek at their upcoming new show The Astronauts!

In a new trailer shared by PEOPLE, a group of kids embark on "the adventure of a lifetime when they are mistakenly launched into space."

The series is Nickelodeon's first production with Imagine Kids+Family and is set to premiere this fall.

According to a synopsis, the group of kids end up in space after gathering to watch the spaceship Odyssey II — that's being launched to investigate a mysterious asteroid passing by Earth — and sneak onto the ship.

Starring in the new show (executive produced by Imagine Entertainment Chairmen Brian Grazer and Ron Howard and Imagine Kids+Family President Stephanie Sperber) are Miya Cech, Bryce Gheisar, Keith L. Williams, Kayden Grace Swan, Ben Daon and Paige Howard.

In the wake of the 2020 Kids' Choice Awards being postponed due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Nickelodeon has something exciting in store for fans this weekend.

On Saturday night the network will be virtually holding the "ultimate house party," revealing the first-ever Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2020: Celebrate Together, a brand-new special that will benefit No Kid Hungry and is being hosted by Victoria Justice. The special will also feature a sneak-peek of Nickelodeon's upcoming Slime Voyage.

Update (5/19) - Imagine Kids+Family reportedly tried to acquire the use of eight Rotofarms for use in The Astronauts, however, Rotofarm creator Toby Farmer unfortunately didn't have Rotofarms to spare the production. Rotofarm is a device inspired by NASA research on growing plants in space. It uses anti-gravity — literally, when the wheel rotates around its LED light source and the plants are hanging upside down — to grow plants faster. A magnetic cover reduces the glare and increases the internal humidity. You manage it via an app.
