With only two other shows hitting the 100-episode mark (The Thundermans in 2018 and iCarly in 2012), the milestone truly shows that Henry Danger has impacted kids’ lives over the course of its five seasons on the network.
“I would say the fact that a normal kid is given a chance to go on superhero missions and adventures is what draws fans in each week,” Jace Norman tells Celeb Secrets. “Henry Danger encourages imagination, bravery, and determination, allowing fans to connect with Henry and picture themselves in the same position.”
Henry Danger follows the adventures of Henry Hart (Norman) who gets selected by superhero Captain Man (Cooper Barnes) to be his apprentice. After promising to keep his new identity a secret, Henry must navigate a double life balancing the challenges of high school with the crazy adventures of a crime fighter. The series also stars Riele Downs as “Charlotte Page,” Sean Ryan Fox as “Jasper Dunlop,” Ella Anderson as “Piper Hart,” Michael D. Cohen as “Schwoz Schwartz,” and Jeffrey Nicholas Brown as “Jake Hart.”
In the 100th episode, titled “Man Cave Self Destruct,” after Schwoz’s family reunion causes chaos in the Man Cave, Captain Man reveals a “Superheroes Only” room in the Man Cave for peace and quiet. Jealous, Charlotte, Jasper and Schwoz make a cooler room to show them up. As the gang fights over who gets the better room, things get blown out of proportion.

Celeb Secrets sat down with Jace recently to talk all things Henry Danger — we cover growing up on Nickelodeon, the one thing he’s learned from being on the show, dream endings and more.
You can read the full conversation below and catch the 100th episode of Henry Danger tonight, March 2nd @ 8PM ET/PT on Nickelodeon.
Celeb Secrets: It’s super exciting to see that Henry Danger keeps getting picked up for more episodes. Did you ever think that it would run this long, and that you would pretty much grow up on Nickelodeon?
Jace Norman: “I was fourteen years old when I was first casted as Henry, so I imagined I would spend a few of my teen years in front of the camera. It is definitely every actor’s dream have a successful show but I never expected it. I was just happy to play such an iconic character. We are currently on our fifth season, and I still feel like I am dreaming.”
Celeb Secrets: What’s the one thing you’ve learned from working on Henry Danger?
Jace Norman: “I learned that the sky is the limit. Since Henry Danger, I have started my own business and begun producing which are two things I never thought I would ever be able to do. There are so many more things I would love to try in the future!
Celeb Secrets: Henry Danger will be hitting a huge milestone with 100 episodes this year. What was the vibe like on set from filming it and what can you tease from the episode?
Jace Norman: “The 100th episode, “Man Cave Self Destruct”, will definitely be one to remember. The episode highlights the aftermath of the Schwoz family reunion as Captain Man reveals a quiet and peaceful “Superheroes Only” room. Charlotte, Jasper and Schwoz become so jealous that they make a much cooler room, causing everyone to fight over who gets the better room. It was super surreal to film this episode, everyone on set felt like they were on cloud nine. We can’t wait for everyone to see it!”
Celeb Secrets: What do you think resonates with the fans most that keeps them watching every week for all these years?
Jace Norman: “I would say the fact that a normal kid is given a chance to go on superhero missions and adventures is what draws fans in each week. Henry Danger encourages imagination, bravery, and determination, allowing fans to connect with Henry and picture themselves in the same position.”
Celeb Secrets: We know it may be hard to choose, but do you have a favorite season of filming Henry Danger? Why?
Jace Norman: “I would have to say that my favorite season is this current season. My superhero skills have gotten more and more advanced, so I have been able to do some pretty cool things. I feel like I have been gaining my own personal superhero skills as the show progresses and am actually starting to think that I am Henry Hart when I am off-camera which I don’t mind one bit! Everything feels so natural.”
Celeb Secrets: If the series were to end, what’s one thing you’d like Henry and his friends to do (or accomplish) before the story comes to a close?
Jace Norman: “I’d love if Henry and his friends “save the world” and become superheroes like Captain Man. Charlotte and Jasper are both huge fans of what Captain Man does, and I think it would be super cool for all of us to be a superhero just like him. I’m imagining all of the scenarios we would find ourselves in, it would be awesome.”
Celeb Secrets: What’s one thing behind the scenes secret from filming Henry Danger that fans have never caught while watching the show?
Jace Norman: “We have a TON of bloopers! The cast and I have such a funny dynamic that sometimes it is impossible to hold back a laugh while filming. But, while we know how to be silly, we also know how to be serious and end up getting the scene down perfectly by the end of the day. I think Henry Danger fans would all of the bloopers, they are golden.”
