The comedy-adventure series will feature 26 episodes that follow the teenage kids of famous monsters, including Clawdeen Wolf, Draculaura, Frankie Stein, and Deuce Gorgon, as they discover who they are, embrace their differences, and learn to be fierce at Monster High. Mattel first launched the Monster High brand in 2010, with characters that create an accepting world where everyone is proud to be their authentic selves. 

The upcoming animated series features 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).
