The second season will air in two parts - with the midseason finale airing on Wednesday, March 16 and the second half debuting in summer 2022.

In Astrid & Lilly Save the World, high school is hard enough when you're different, but when outcast BFFs Astrid (Jana Morrison) and Lilly (Samantha Aucoin) accidentally crack open a portal to a terrifyingly quirky monster dimension, it gets a lot more complicated. It's up to them to vanquish the creepy creatures and save the world, becoming the badass heroes they were meant to be. That is, if they can survive the horrors of high school.

Noelle Stehman and Betsy Van Stone created the dramedy. They executive produce with Lance Samuels, Daniel Iron and Samantha Levine. Blue Ice Pictures produces.
