A new animated series is coming to Peacock later this month. An adaptation of the best seller book by Jaymin Eve, Supernatural Academy. Today we finally have the official trailer! Take a look for it yourselves down below.
Supernatural Academy tells the story of two twin sisters who are reuniting for the first time since birth. Jessa, who stays in the supernatural realm, is confident and popular. Then we have Mischa, who is coming back from growing up in the human realm, and is an offbeat outsider. Their mother reunites them, and Mischa joins her sister at the Supernatural Academy. Throughout the series, the sisters must learn to set their differences aside and work together. Hard to do when you just met one another for the first time since you guys were in the womb. But it’s something they must do so to defeat any enemies that come their way.
This is really giving me Disney’s Twitches vibes.
Behind it all
