European studio Rainbow has recently announced that the animated fairytale remix Regal Academy will be returning to Nick Jr. in the U.S. for its second season. The debut for broadcast has been pencilled in for Sunday, November 5 at 1:30pm ET/PT, with a global rollout on various Nickelodeon platforms scheduled for 2018.
Regal Academy is known for providing a contemporary comedic take on classic fairytales, as it follows the various adventures of Rose Cinderella, the granddaughter of Cinderella, and her schoolmates — Hawk SnowWhite, Travis Beast, Joy LeFrog, Astoria Rapunzel and LingLing Iron Fan — at a fabled school for famous fairytale dynasties.
The new season of Regal Academy will see Rose and her friends returning to school after the summer holidays. With the help of new magical items and funny pumpkin creatures called the PomPoms, the heroes will face a new challenge in the form of the mysterious student named Kira, and the evil Snow Queen who wants to trap everyone in her snow globes.
