Monster High rose to popularity more than a decade ago in 2010. Now the show’s beloved characters are back per an announcement by Mattel and Nickelodeon.
Two new Monster High TV events, an all-new animated series and first-ever Monster High live-action television movie musical will debut in 2022. Clawdeen Wolf, Frankie Stein, Draculaura, and more are coming to the Nick network (and all the company’s platforms) next year.

Of the upcoming television events, Fred Soulie, General Manager, Mattel Television, said in a press release, “Monster High’s strong message of inclusivity is more relevant than ever.” Soulie continued, “Nickelodeon shares our passion for the brand and its purpose having worked on the franchise when it first launched more than a decade ago. They are the ideal partners to bring these beloved characters and their stories to life through episodic television and the live-action television movie.”
Ramsey Naito, President of Nickelodeon Animation said, “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.” Naito added, “We have terrific partners on board at Mattel to create original content in different formats, and, with the expertise of the Nick creative team helmed by Claudia Spinelli on the animation development side, and Zack Olin and Shauna Phelan on the live-action side, we can’t wait to showcase the comedy and adventure of these characters as they defy expectations and take on the world.”
Nickelodeon did provide information on a release date—but you can expect both of the magical Monster High shows to air in 2022.
