You just can’t keep a good Thunderman down. The Nickelodeon series The Thundermans, about a family of superheroes, ran for four seasons from 2013-2018, spawned a TV movie titled The Thundermans Return. And now the returning will continue with a spinoff from the movie.

The to-be-titled spinoff of the spinoff will follow Phoebe (Kira Kosarin) and Max (Jack Griffo) as the head to the town of Secret Shores undercover to tackle a brand new threat. Along for the ride will be Chloe (Maya Le Clark), a newer superhero who needs training. The show will kick off production this August in Vancouver, and will premiere at a TBA date.

Here’s the official synopsis, via a press release from Nickelodeon:

“In the brand-new series, Chloe forms a bond with two classmates while they investigate suspicious activity coming from the local school, who don’t realize their new friend has secret powers. As the danger increases, the Thunderman trio must stay in town indefinitely, leaving the squabbling twins in charge of raising their younger sister.”

Beyond the main trio, the channel promises other characters from the previous show and movie will also return for guest appearances.

So why are the Thundermans always returning? That’s because despite wrapping up six years ago, since its 2021 launch on streaming the show became a “top title” for kids ages 6 through 11. Hence: more Thundermans. And the movie paid off on that premise, debuting on Nickelodeon and Paramount+ as “the number-one Entertainment telecast for the year to date in Live+3 performance across all cable among Kids 6-11, and reached 1.6 million Total Viewers throughout its premiere weekend.”

The new series is EPed by Jed Spingarn and Sean W. Cunningham, who have several credits including The Thundermans, Julie and the Phantoms, and Jimmy Neutron behind them. In some neat news, Kosarin and Griffo are also EPs.
