Rainbow Group, the entertainment leader behind the hit, original animated series Regal Academy, and The Alpha Group US LLC, master toy partner for the series, announce that season one of Regal Academy has returned to Nickelodeon.
New episodes of the series will continue to air Saturdays at 7:00 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
Regal Academy follows Rose, the granddaughter of Cinderella, as she enters the Regal Academy where she embarks on magical adventures with her classmates, who also have fairytale heritage and belong to the school’s founding families. The series, which adds a modern and comedic twist to the most beloved fairytales, debuted on Nickelodeon in August 2016.
“With Regal Academy, Rainbow Group continues to create animated series that delight kids, and we are looking forward to treating the audience to more episodes this year,” said Elizabeth Murray, Executive Vice President, Programming, Nickelodeon Group.
“We are thrilled at the positive response to Regal Academy from fans of all ages and we are looking forward to continuing the series with fresh adventures for Rose Cinderella and her classmates,” said Cristiana Buzzelli, SVP Licensing and Acquisitions, Rainbow Group. “Having Nickelodeon as the global broadcaster for the series has delivered outstanding viewership, creating lots of Regal Academy fans. The possibilities are endless for these dynamic characters and these additional episodes will offer fans a richer look at the magical Regal Academy world.”
Building upon the series’ success, The Alpha Group will release a full line of fashion dolls and playsets based on Regal Academy in Fall 2017. Designed for girls five and older, the line spans 14 skus across 7 assortments with a wide range of price points. The toy line will be showcased at New York Toy Fair in February 2017 during which fans of the show will be able to catch a glimpse of the Regal Academy bus driving around Manhattan.
“We are happy to see that Regal Academy has been well received by viewers and we are excited to deliver a line of toys that will allow fans of the series to re-enact their favourite adventures and imagine new magical stories of their own,” said Brehan Maul, Vice-President Marketing, The Alpha Group US. “The enchanting stories, elegant animation style, rich colours and magical elements that can be seen throughout every episode are reflected in the line of Regal Academy playsets and dolls, and we know fans of the series will love experiencing their favourite characters come to life through the line.”
