One of the best parts of Halloween is all the cool holiday TV programming! We get to rewatch our favorite Halloween movies, all of our favorite TV shows have themed episodes, and even the cooking shows get into the action with pumpkin carving and spooky cake competitions! Halloween is definitely a month-long event now, and you can easily watch a different Halloween show everyday of October without watching the same one twice. But sometimes, the Halloween stuff can be a little too scary for younger kiddos. Luckily, our favorite networks and streaming services have plenty of kid-friendly fare for our toddlers and preschoolers! One of the cutest Halloween-themed shows from last couple of years, Super Monsters, is one of those shows. And Netflix has a second season ready to go, just in time for Halloween. Even better? They have a standalone Halloween special coming out, too!
The concept of Super Monsters is absolutely adorable. It follows the kids of some of the most famous monsters around, like Dracula, Frankenstein, and Cleopatra. The little monster kiddos are trying to figure out how to make it through monster preschool at Pitchfork Pines Preschool, which sounds like the perfect school, to be honest. The kids are learning how to manage and master their superpowers, so they can grow up and follow in their spooky parents' footsteps!
But Pitchfork Pines isn't like any other preschool. It doesn't even start until sundown, and right before they little monsters head to school, they undergo a transformation into their spooky alter egos. They attend school from sundown to sunup, which is hilarious.
The second season will have seven new episodes, each 22 minutes long. They're the perfect length to keep your own little monster's attention! There will be plenty of new original songs, plus two new characters. We'll be introduced to Spike the Dragon, as well as a new school bus friend named GrrBus. Honestly, the trailer is so freaking cute, and we can't wait to watch the new season! Super Monsters 2 hits Netflix on October 5, so make sure you and your kids have plenty of time to get through it before Halloween.
