Basic info and storyline
Miraculous Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir, or Miraculous, is a French CGI-animated action and adventure series. It is based on Thomas Astruc`s original idea, and was co-produced by Zagtoon, Method Animation and Toei Animation with world-wide cooperation. The series premiered in South Korea on September 1, 2015, and the US debut took place on December 6, 2015 on Nickelodeon.
Miraculous is built around a well-known scheme – regular person by day, superhero by night saves the world time and time again. There are two co-stars here, classmates Marinette and Adrien, who are not aware of their partner`s regular identities, so when they meet in school it`s all the usual pre-teen awkwardness. Originally the series was meant to be targeted at teens and young adults, with political issues interwoven with the plot. However, that failed to interest the networks, and Miraculous was rebranded for a younger audience.
Viewer reception and renewal
Miraculous is generally a positive series to watch, it is fun, colorful, and provides good role models and behavior patterns. The quality of the anime-influenced animation and the lovely music score are praised as well. The series has become very popular, and Jeremy Zag of Zagtoon Inc. announced on November 20, 2015 that the second and third season of Miraculous are in the works, each to consist of 26 episodes, just like the current freshman season. That was later confirmed by a twit written by one of the series` writers. Stay tuned for an official statement from the network to make sure that the animated series is indeed renewed.

Subsequently, there will be more brand new episodes airing on Saturdays at 8:30am.
