StarBeam is a superhero animated streaming television series created for Netflix by Loris Lunsford and Jason Netter. The show follows Zoey (voiced by Nahanni Mitchell), a young girl who is a superhero.[1][2]

The first season of the series premiered on Netflix on April 3, 2020,[3] followed by a second season on September 8, 2020. A third season debuted on a March 9, 2021 release.[4] Season 4 debuted on June 29, 2021, introducing a new format in the last few episodes.

A Halloween special, StarBeam: Halloween Hero, was released on October 6, 2020.[5]

A New Years' special, StarBeam: Beaming in the New Year, was released on December 14, 2021.[6]


The show is based on Zoey, a girl in second grade. StarBeam, a superhero with unusual powers, including super-speed, super-strength, flight, high-velocity wind breathing, and the power to build force fields with bubbles, is Zoey's alter-ego. With her catchphrase, "It's time to shine!" Zoey turns into StarBeam. Zoey inherited her superpowers from her superhero mother, WonderBeam, and follows the theme of family superheroes.

Only a few people are aware of her hidden existence in Zoey's world. These individuals include her "Gramps" non-superpower grandfather; her closest friend, Henry, a "Boost" superhero who invents devices that strengthen his superhero abilities; and a friend who gives moral encouragement, their seagull sidekick, "Kipper." Gramps, Boost, and Kipper, together, always assist Zoey to save the day.
