Peacock summons YA fantasy series 'Supernatural Academy' for January premiere
Supernatural Academy arrives on Peacock Jan. 20, 2022.
It's time to get supernatural. No, we're not talking about the Winchester brothers. We're talking about Peacock's forthcoming animated series, Supernatural Academy. Based on the best-selling books written by Jaymin Eve, the YA fantasy project (hailing from 41 Entertainment) will tell the story of twin sisters marked at birth for a greater destiny.
Raised in the supernatural world, Jessa Lebron is popular and confident while Mischa Jackson/Lebron — raised in the human world — is a bit of a loner. The two characters are begrudgingly reunited at Supernatural Academy, but must learn to put their differences aside in order to trust one another and save the world. We'd say the stakes can't get much higher than that.
“It is so incredible to see my original story come to life in this high-quality animation project,” Eve said in a statement. "I am so grateful to both Peacock and 41 Entertainment for believing in me and I am sure that all of the fans of the books are anxiously marking January 20th on their diaries."
