Season 1 premiered in the U.S. on October 28 on Nickelodeon. The series also debuted in the U.K. and will launch later this month in Australia on Nickelodeon and Paramount+, rolling out in additional international territories in 2023.

In Live +3, the most recent premiere of Monster High (11/4, 7P) delivered a strong 0.58 K2-11 rating, up double digits from the prior four weeks’ timeslot and the prior week’s launch. Across all telecasts to date on the Nick portfolio of nets (Nickelodeon, Nick at Nite, Nicktoons and TeenNick), the Monster High series has reached 1 million Kids 2-11 and nearly 4 million total viewers.
