Nickelodeon has exciting news for fans of Mattel's Monster High franchise: a new animated series and a live-action musical movie will be hitting the network in 2022. Monster High centers around the children of famous monsters and creatures - including Clawdeen Wolf, Draculaura, and Frankie Stein - as they navigate the ups and downs of life in high school. The franchise was first introduced in 2010 with both dolls and a web series on YouTube. Now, over a decade later, Nickelodeon and Mattel seek to enchant a new wave of Monster High-lovers through these exciting television projects.

"These classic monsters have always captured kids' imaginations and we are so excited and proud to welcome Monster High to our brand for a new generation of kids. We . . . can't wait to showcase the comedy and adventure of these characters as they defy expectations and take on the world," Ramsey Naito, president of Nickelodeon Animation, said in a press release.
