For Henry Hart, the titular character on Henry Danger, it's his reality to be a regular teen by day and a sidekick to the world's biggest superhero, Captain Man (Cooper Barnes), after school. While he has the coolest part-time job out of any high schooler ever, he has to keep it to himself for his own protection.

Why did 'Henry Danger' end?

Since it debuted on Netflix in January of 2021, fans have wondered why the series appeared to come to an abrupt end. If you are one of the viewers who was first introduced to the show through Netflix, we have some disappointing news for you.

The first three seasons of the comedy are available to stream on Netflix, while the final two are not. Those who are binge-watching Henry Danger on Netflix will have to find another way to watch the remaining two seasons.

The show originally aired on Nickelodeon, and it came to an end in March of 2020. Less than a year later, it was added to Netflix.

As for why the popular kids' show came to an end after Season 5, there's seemingly no drama surrounding the conclusion. Actor Jace Norman reprised his role as Henry in Danger Force, so it seems like the original show simply ended to expand the Henry Danger universe

The first three seasons of Henry Danger are available to stream on Netflix now.
