Nick Preps Premiere of Welcome to the Wayne


The new animated mystery series Welcome to the Wayne, created and written by Emmy winner Billy Lopez (The Wonder Pets), is due to debut on Nickelodeon next month.

Welcome to the Wayne follows the adventures of three youngsters as they explore a strange and fantastical New York City apartment building called the Wayne. The 20-episode comedic show is executive produced by Emmy winner Michael Pecoriello (Yu-Gi-Oh!). It is slated to begin airing on Monday, July 24, at 5:30 p.m., with encore episodes broadcast on Saturdays at 10:30 a.m.

The voice cast for Welcome to the Wayne includes Alanna Ubach (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce) as Ansi, the anxious new kid in town; Lopez as Olly, an adventurous 10-year-old and lifelong resident of the Wayne; and Dana Steingold (Avenue Q) as Saraline, Olly’s more mature younger sister. The show began as a digital short-form series that premiered on in 2014.
