Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, and series creator/writer Daniel Knauf, THE ASTRONAUTS is a half-hour, live-action series that follows a group of kids who embark on the adventure of a lifetime when they are mistakenly launched into space. The group traveling together through space are: Samantha "Samy" Sawyer-Wei; Elliott Combs; Martin Taylor; Doria Taylor; and Will Rivers. Matilda, is the ship's onboard AI system. In the two-episode series opener, the spacecraft Odyssey II is set to launch on a mission to retrieve a foreign object that could potentially save mankind. The plan quickly goes awry when five untrained kids use their parents' security clearances to sneak onto the empty ship. Soon after they board, the onboard AI system triggers the launch sequence. Unable to stop the ship from blasting off, the kids must assume their new role as astronauts and brave harrowing tasks, as their parents rush to find a way to take control of the situation.
On Friday, January 15, 2021 at 7pm ET/PT, Nickelodeon premiered "Day 85," the season finale of THE ASTRONAUTS. An unexpected development prompts doubts among the kids about returning home, and an unknown threat attempts to destroy the Odyssey before the astronauts can make their next move.
