Peacock’s “Supernatural Academy Announces Main Cast and 2022 Series Premiere Date
Peacock is expanding its animated series library with a full season order of the all-new original young adult fantasy series “Supernatural Academy”. The series is an adaptation of a series of books from bestselling author Jaymin Eve and will be produced by 41 Entertainment. “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, author of the best-selling series ‘The Supernatural Academy.’ “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 executive produced by Allen Bohbot and directed by Steve Ball. Jody Prouse will serve as animation director with the series being developed and written by Gillian Horvath. 41 Entertainment will produce the series with ICON Creative Studio providing the series animation.
