Nexo Knights (stylized as NEXO KNIGHTS) is a CGI comedy-action fantasy sci-fi television series that aired on Cartoon Network from December 13, 2015 to September 1, 2017.

The first two pilot episodes, The Book of Monsters - Part 1 and Part 2, first aired on December 13, 2015. The next few episodes of the first season aired a month later.

It is intended to tie-in with the the LEGO theme of the same name. Viewers are able to scan Nexo Powers from the television series directly into the app.

Though the series ended in 2018 due to production and budgetary issues,[1] despite it exceeding sales expectations,[2] Samuel Johnson,[3] Peter Griffiths,[4] and Tommy Andreasen[5] hope for its return, as do other cast members.[6][7][8][9] Samuel Johnson notes that it is possible it could return,[3] though Tommy Andreasen doubts the story arc would complete.[10]

Trivia

  • It was originally titled "The Knights of Avatron"[11] and was later named "Knighton" for a short while.[12]
  • The goal for Nexo Knights was to create a brand that would be the top for boys in 2016, but also be interesting enough for two years.[12]
  • LEGO had toyed with futuristic knights before but had never explored it deeply like in Nexo Knights.[12]
  • The designers had toyed around with creating a tower defense video game for Nexo Knights before deciding that its core theme would be collectibility in the Nexo Powers.[12]
  • Around the time of Season 4's airing, the eighth season of Ninjago also began to air, causing an issue with the timeslots.
    • Because Nexo Knights was generally not as popular, a television channel moved its timeslot to 4:30AM, causing it to have bad ratings, ending the series.[13]
  • Despite the medieval theme, dragons were not added to the series because Ninjago already had them.[14]
  • According to Tommy Andreasen, it is not possible at the moment to create a Ninjago-Nexo Knights crossover.[15]
