Another Nick News will air on December 15th with a new episode that will focus on female students in Afghanistan. This will give us all a look at what is happening in that country for the students. The segment will also talk to the kids from Broadway’s Mrs. Doubtfire who are coming back to perform once again as well talking to members of Philadelphia’s renowned West Powelton Steppers & Drum Squad.
This is going to be a great show and we like the fact that Nickelodeon is keeping kids in the know of what is going on in the world.

Nickelodeon will premiere a brand-new installment of its celebrated Nick News series on Wednesday, Dec. 15, at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT), which highlights the stories of incredible kids who are rising to the challenges they are faced with in order to make their dreams a reality, including female students in the heart of Afghanistan who are now being denied an education by laws reenacted by the Taliban, the kids from Broadway’s Mrs. Doubtfire who are hitting the stage after a year and a half of COVID-imposed hiatus and the members of Philadelphia’s renowned West Powelton Steppers & Drum Squad who have found a safe haven and inspiration on this remarkable drill team.
Hosted by CBS News Correspondent Jamie Yuccas, Nick News opens with a segment from Kabul, Afghanistan, where CBS News’ Imtiaz Tyab met with kids to discuss the reinstituted restrictive rules that ban girls over the age of 11 from going to school and highlights their fight to keep their dreams of a formal education and a bright productive future alive. The half-hour Nick News program will also feature a visit to the Great White Way, where CBS News Correspondent Vladimir Duthiers provides viewers a backstage pass to Broadway’s newest musical comedy Mrs. Doubtfire, where the young cast shares what it takes to make it to the big show.
“With this episode of Nick News, we offer viewers a window into three very different worlds that somehow all converge to showcase how despite our differences we are all connected. Whether it’s girls in Afghanistan fighting for their right to an education, young actors finding their way back to the stage after a year of uncertainty due to the ongoing pandemic, or young people in West Philadelphia making themselves heard instead of becoming another statistic, these stories all share one thing in common: the resilience of incredible kids, which we hope will inspire our audience to continue to work towards their goals and make them a reality,” said Magalie Laguerre-Wilkinson, Vice President of News Programming, Nickelodeon and Executive Producer of Nick News.
Additionally, Gabrielle Nevaeh Green, star of Nickelodeon’s That Girl Lay Lay and All That heads to Philadelphia to introduce viewers to the West Powelton Steppers & Drum Squad, which was founded by Elsie Wise and 25 years later is led by her grandson Antoine Mapp, who continues her legacy of providing kids a safe environment to learn that Philly sound and beat, while acquiring invaluable life skills on and off the drums.
Following the premiere on Nickelodeon, this new episode of Nick News will be available on Nick.com, Nick App and Nick On Demand beginning Thursday, Dec. 16.
