Nickelodeon previews “The Other Kingdom” premiering in April

We are just a few weeks away from the premiere of Nickelodeon’s new fantasy-epic series “The Other Kingdom,” which will be available on Nickelodeon in April.

The new live-action series will bring together a world of mythical creatures, magical beings and high school teens and will premiere on the network on Sunday, April 10, at 7p.m. (ET/PT).

Nickelodeon has ordered 20 episodes of the new series, which follows the journey of Fairy Princess Astral, played by Esther Zynn. In the story Astral has to choose between being a fairy princess or becoming human, as she is set to inherit the crown of her royal kingdom of Athenia.

Nickelodeon will air two new episodes of The Other Kingdom back to back on Sunday nights, beginning at 7 p.m. (ET/PT).

Leaving her fairy world behind to pursue her ultimate dream of life as a mortal, Astral’s adventures begin when she enrolls into Theseus High School as a freshmen exchange student. With the help of her new friends Tristan (Callan Potter), Morgan (Celina Martin) and Devon (Taylor Adams), and magical spells and fairy dust, her journey through human teen-dom is full of laughs, self-discovery and romance, until a sinister plot threatens the fate of her fairy kingdom. With her time in the human world running out, she is torn between saving her homeland and choosing her new life—and she only has 90 days to decide.

The Other Kingdom is created and executive produced by Thomas W. Lynch (Make It Pop) and produced by DHX Media, with Steven DeNure and Anne Loi of DHX Media also serving as executive producers.

Nick has setup a fansite for the new series at nick.com/the-other-kingdom, where fantasy fans can learn about the new cast, creations and history that will be part of the ongoing series. The video above features actor
