Peacock announced the expansion of its animated programming with a full season order of Supernatural Academy, an animated fantasy series aimed at young adults produced by 41 Entertainment. The series is an adaptation of Jaymin Eve’s The Supernatural Academy books.
Supernatural Academy chronicles an otherworldly adventure of sisters marked at birth. One twin sister was raised in the Supernatural world, confident and popular. The other was raised in the human world, an offbeat outsider. Now they’re about to be reunited at the Supernatural Academy, and neither one of them is thrilled about it. These adversarial twins will have to learn to get over their differences and trust each other in order to save themselves – and save the world.
“It is so incredible to see my original story come to life in this high-quality animation project,” said Jaymin Eve.’ “I am so grateful to both Peacock and 41 Entertainment for believing in me and I am sure that all of the fans of the books are anxiously marking January 20th on their diaries.”
Supernatural Academy is set to premiere on Thursday, 20 January 2022. Here is a list of cast and characters.
Larissa Dias (Supernatural), will play Jessa Lebron. Jessa is a popular Wolf Shifter in her junior year at the Supernatural Academy. She has everything a girl could ever ask for including a supportive father and four best friends with their own unique supernatural skills.
Gigi Saul Guerrero (Marvel Super Hero Adventures) will voice Mischa Jackson/Lebron. Raised by a single mom with a tendency to move from place to place, Mischa has never fit in anywhere. The timid, creative and sweet natured girl transforms after realising her mother has hidden who she truly is for sixteen years.
Vincent Tong (Ninjago) will play Maximus. Max is a natural leader as proven through his watchful eye on his younger brother Braxton.
Cardi Wong (Supergirl) voices Braxton. Brax is the lovable, goofy and smooth talker of the group.
Shannon Chan-Kent (Good Trouble) plays Elda Kristov. Elda is the daughter of the Headmaster of the Supernatural Academy and sees Jessa as her main rival for Queen Bee status.
Bethany Brown (Charmed), will voice Terra. Terra is Jessa’s lifelong bestie. Terra’s unique power of sorcery perfectly rounds out the group’s supernatural abilities.
Barbara Kottmeier (Supernatural), plays Lienda Jackson/Lebron. Lienda is the true definition of a mother. She is a strong woman who has sacrificed her supernatural ability and a life with one of her twin daughters, solely to protect her family.
Alessandro Juliani (Battlestar Galactica), voices Jonathon Lebron. As head of the World Council and the Alpha Wolf of the Lebron pack, Jonathon not only has a civic duty but a paternal instinct to save the realms and his daughters.
Brian Drummond (Mega Man: Fully Charged), will voice Headmaster Kristov. Kristov proves himself to be a manipulative villain, and self-righteous as he plots against the Lebron twins from the moment they are reunited.
Supernatural Academy is executive produced by Allen Bohbot, directed by Steve Ball, animation directed by Jody Prouse, developed & written for TV by Gillian Horvath and features an original theme song composed by John Majkut. ICON Creative Studio in Vancouver provides animation services.
