‘Monster High’ Animated Series Renewed For Season 2 At Nickelodeon

More Monster High is coming to Nickelodeon. The animated series has been renewed for a second season, the network announced Thursday.

The renewal comes just a few weeks after Season 1 premiered in the U.S. on Oct. 28. The new season will be 20 episodes. Season 1 also debuted last month in the UK and is expected to launch soon in Australia and more international territories.

Monster High The Movie premiered on Nickelodeon and Paramount+ Oct 6. Based on the iconic Mattel franchise about the children of famous monsters and creatures, the movie and the series follow iconic teenage monsters Clawdeen Wolf, Draculaura, Frankie Stein and Deuce Gorgon as they discover who they are, embrace their differences, and learn to be fierce and fearless at the one place they all belong: Monster High.

In its new season, Monster High will dive even deeper into character backgrounds and continue expanding on the theme of friendship.
