They might be immigrants from Transylvania, but the Hauntley family has been welcomed into U.S. homes with open arms…

Disney Junior’s VAMPIRINA is a series that I pegged as a hit months in advance of its Fall 2017 debut, and that’s something that was quickly proven true. Today, Disney announced that they’ve officially ordered a second season of VAMPIRINA, setting the stage for even more supernatural adventures for the younger crowd. The series follows young Vampirina (aka “Vee”) as she faces the joys and trials of being the new kid in town, including making friends and attending a new school in the human world. VAMPIRINA stars Lauren Graham, James Van Der Beek and Isabella Crovetti as the Hauntley family, friendly vampires who have recently relocated from Transylvania to Pennsylvania.

“Vampirina’s relatable experience of a young girl trying to adapt and blend in with her new schoolmates, while also celebrating her own uniqueness, has resonated with our audience of young kids and families. We look forward to sharing more stories about the loveable young Vee, her new friends and her fantastical world of dancing gargoyles, playful ghosts and cuddly werewolves.” — Joe D’Ambrosia, senior vice president, Original Programming, Disney Junior.

“Vampirina” airs daily on Disney Channel and Disney Junior and is also available on the DisneyNOW app. In addition to Graham, Van Der Beek and Crovetti, the series stars Wanda Sykes (ABC’s “black-ish”) as Vampirina’s cantankerous yet loyal gargoyle sidekick Gregoria; Mitchell Whitfield (“My Cousin Vinny”) as playful ghost, Demi; Jordan Alexa Davis (“Sofia the First”) as Vee’s best friend and next-door neighbor, Poppy; ViviAnn Yee (“The Boss Baby”) as another one of Vee’s close friends, Bridget; Dee Bradley Baker (“Phineas and Ferb”) as Vee’s teacher, Mr. Gore, and the Hauntley’s dog, Wolfie; Benji Risley (“If You Give a Mouse a Cookie”) as Poppy’s twin brother, Edgar; Cree Summer (“A Different World”) as Poppy and Edgar’s mom, Edna; and Ian James Corlett (“Dinosaur Train”) as Chef Remy Bones, the Scare B&B’s resident skeleton chef.

Inspired by Disney Publishing’s popular children’s book series “Vampirina Ballerina,” written by Anne Marie Pace and illustrated by LeUyen Pham, the series includes leaders from the creative team on Disney Junior’s Peabody Award-winning animated series “Doc McStuffins” including executive producer Chris Nee and co-executive producer Norton Virgien. Broadway composers Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond (“The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes”) are the series’ songwriters and Layla Minoui (“Castle”) is the composer. The series is produced by Academy Award®-nominated animation studio Brown Bag Films in association with Disney Junior.

VAMPIRINA has been a massive hit in our house, with the full line of toys from Just Play ranking among the best of the year in supporting the series, which became a must-watch straight out of the gate.
