This coming February 23 at 8PM ET, Nicktoons will launch the new action adventure series Monsuno with two back-to-back half-hour episodes. The 52 episode series follows the adventures of a group of heroic kids, who fight using their ability to command the awesome powers of battle creatures, referred to as Monsuno.
After the two-episode debut, Monsuno will start airing on its regular timeslot every Thursdays at 8:30 PM ET. The main broadcast channel will be Nicktoons, but Monsuno will also air on Nickelodeon channels all around the world starting in Summer of 2012.
The series has a very interesting premise: millions of years ago, Monsuno, a living DNA, hitched a ride to Earth in a concentrated asteroid pocket. When it landed on Earth, the impact drove the dinosaurs into extinction. The Monsuno DNA lay dormant until a scientist named Jeredy Suno activated it, sending a rippling wave of movement back into action. By doing so, Jeredy may have reignited the end of the world but he also created its salvation, the Monsuno monsters. Now, it’s up to his son Chase to learn the secrets of Monsuno and help save the world from impending destruction.
