The new animated series follows the teenage children of famous monsters as they discover who they are and how to embrace their differences.

Nickelodeon and Mattel have shared a clip and key art for the original animated series Monster High, which premiered last Friday week in the U.S. The comedy-adventure series, which follows the teenage children of famous monsters, will also debut in Canada, the UK and Australia later this year on Nickelodeon and Paramount+, and in additional international territories in 2023.

The all-new series (26 episodes) follows 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.

The all-star lineup of additional voice talent includes Ken Marino (Reno 911!) as Dracula; Felicia Day (Mystery Science Theater 3000) as Ghoulia Yelps; Valeria Rodriquez (The Valley of Tears) as Spectra Vondergeist; Scott Menville (Teen Titans Go!) as Romulus; Cole Massie (Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers) as Finnegan Wake; Victoria T Washington (Dropouts) as Howleen; Jordan R. Coleman (A Million Little Things) as Manny Taur; and Krystina Alabado (Sesame Street Mecha Builders) as Nefera De Nile.

The new voice cast joins previously announced cast members Gabrielle Nevaeh Green (Clawdeen Wolf); Courtney Lin (Draculaura); Iris Menas (Frankie Stein); Tony Revolori (Deuce Gorgon); Kausar Mohammed (Cleo De Nile); Valeria Rodriguez (Lagoona Blue); Alexa Kahn (Torelei Stripe); Alexander Polinsky (Heath Burns); and Debra Wilson (Headmistress Bloodgood).

In addition to the animated series, a live-action television movie musical based on the franchise is slated to premiere October 6 on Nickelodeon and Paramount+. Both projects join other Mattel Television content in production, including series and specials based on Barbie, Masters of the Universe, Thomas & Friends, Polly Pocket, Pictionary and Fireman Sam.

Shea Fontana (Polly Pocket) serves as showrunner and co-executive producer of Monster High, with Nick Filippi (Big Hero 6: The Series) as supervising producer. Production is overseen for Nickelodeon by Claudia Spinelli, Senior Vice President, Big Kids Animation and Nikki Price, Director of Franchise Animation. Fred Soulie, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Mattel Television, and Christopher Keenan, Senior Vice President of Creative, serve as executive producers for Mattel.

Mattel first introduced Monster High in 2010.  The franchise seeks to foster a more accepting world where everyone is proud to be their authentic self.  Today, Monster High is back with a reimagined set of fangtastic characters reflected in a new set of dolls, accessories, apparel, costumes and more inspired by the original ghouls for a new generation that embraces what makes them unique and rallies people everywhere to express themselves.
