Series info and storyline
The Other Kingdom is a live-action children and teen comedy and fantasy television series airing on Nickelodeon. The program premiered on April 10, 2016. It is created and executive produced by Thomas W. Lynch, Steven DeNure and Anne Loi and produced by DHX Media. The freshman season contains 20 episodes.
The storyline centers on Fairy Princess Astral (Esther Zynn) who`s grown up in the magical kingdom of Athenia, and, having always dreamt to be a human being, consequently sets out to attend a regular high school with regular kids in the human world. She poses as an exchange student in order to conceal her utter lack of knowledge about the specifics of the everyday human life. She discovers a whole new world and finds out how difficult it is to fit in. Among the cast members are Callan Potter, Josette Halpert, Celina Martin and Taylor Adams.
Ratings and renewal prospects
The show is a fun take on the classic fish-out-of-the-water storyline, and seems to be a likable and heartening watching experience. It explores social issues that resonate with the target audience, such as finding your true identity, social relationships, fitting in at a new place, peer pressure. By the end of her 90 days in the human world Astral has to make a choice – whether to remain a fairy and become the queen of Athenia, or remain in the mortal world. The Other Kingdom premiered to an audience of 1.29 million viewers, dwindling somewhat to 0.91 million viewers by the fourth episode. It`s difficult to predict whether the series will be renewed for a second season, so we will monitor network announcements and keep you posted.
