A world of magic, myth and adventure is about to unfold as Nickelodeon readies for the premiere of Mysticons on Monday, August 28 at 4 p.m. ET/PT. The new half-hour animated action series is produced by Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana, and weaves together a rich story world around its fierce female heroes and their fight against evil.
Created and executive produced by Sean Jara (Johnny Test), Mysticons is a contemporary urban fantasy series about four girls from different walks of life who are transformed into the legendary Mysticons.
