Peacock's Supernatural Academy Trailer Released
The first teaser trailer for the Peacock original animated series Supernatural Academy has arrived. The series, based on author Jaymin Eve's bestselling book series The Supernatural Academy, stars twin sisters Jessa and Mischa. Jessa is a confident and popular girl raised in the supernatural world, while Mischa is an offbeat outsider raised in the human world. The twins meet each other for the first time when their mother reunites them and reveals to Mischa their supernatural heritage. Mischa then joins Jessa at Supernatural Academy. The Peacock YA animated fantasy series will force the sisters to work together to trust one another, while also saving the world.
Supernatural Academy's trailer also introduces some of the other students at the school, along with evil threats awaiting them this 16-episode season premiering on January 20th. Allen Bohbot is the executive producer of Supernatural Academy. Steve Ball is the series director, and Jody Prouse is the animation director. The animated series is developed and written for television by Gillian Horvath, with original theme songs composed by John Majkut. 41 Entertainment (Kong- King of the Apes, Tarzan and Jane, Super Monsters) produces with animation services provided by ICON Creative Studio.
"It is so incredible to see my original story come to life in this high-quality animation project," said The Supernatural Academy author 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."
