Think tweens aren’t into telenovelas? Think again: Nickelodeon’s wildly popular live-action drama House of Anubis has been picked up for a second season after posting impressive numbers in its first year.

The live-action show, already an established hit for Nick in Europe, averaged 1.2 million kids ages 6-11 and 1.0 million tweens ages 9-14 when it aired five nights a week during its January and February run. Talk about a hit with the Clearasil set: The show beat Glee, Pretty Little Liars, and Gossip Girl among all kids and tweens.

House of Anubis follows a group of students who uncover and solve hidden mysteries at an English boarding school, while dealing with the highs and lows of their teenage years.  In season 2, the teens undertake a series of challenges to find a powerful and long-forgotten treasure.

Production on the next 45 half-hour episodes will begin July 21 in Liverpool, England — where the show was taped last season. New episodes will premiere in 2012.

    Never heard of it. Surprising to hear Americans are willing to listen to another accent, although maybe that’s older people as clearly kids don’t care.

    • Cynder

      I don’t know about kids other places, but I’m 13 and all my friends and I love British accents.

    • Liz

      i love british accents it just makes the show more interesting

    • KJ

      I am eighteen, and I love to hear English accents, as well as countless other accents. Americans are actually very accepting of different accents, and many commercials use accents to sell their products. That’s how much Americans love foreign accents. (Especially English and Australian accents.)

    Now if only theyd start airing Doctor Who on regular stations for our kids like in Britain we’d finally be getting somewhere.

    • Sierra

      Being an American teenager who loves Doctor Who (there more of us than you’d think), I completely agree!!!

      • chris

        get BBC America and you can watch Dr. Who all the time!

  • jen

    I actually watched this show with my 3 kids (12, 10, 7) and really enjoyed it as much as they did. However I was completely thrown when one of the characters showed up on Game of Thrones naked and sleeping with his aunt. Don’t know if i can watch him on a kids show again now.

    • cole

      • Emma

        What r u talking abt?

  • jen

    oh wait they are cousins, not aunt/nephew. my bad

  • Tracey

    Hear that scream? It was my 7 yr old excitedly jumping up and down….with me right along next to her. We love this show. But they never aired all the episodes here like they did over there.

  • Michael

    What about my cartoons

  • jill

    My kids will be thrilled. They were glued to that show….every night at 7 pm.

  • Deebo

    Do you idiots even realize what this show is about? This is illuminati indoctrinate for your children…Secret Society, Eye of Horus etc…Wake up sheep, your children are going to be the slaves

    • Me

      Are you the REAL Deebo

    • Charn

      It’s called a mystery show. No one’s going to take it seriously or become brainwashed.

    • Me X 3

      I am 13 i watch it. I obsess over it. Anyways, if u believe it watever. It ISNT TRUE!

  • Teddy

    Yeah actually, Deebo is right. Since this show aired, there has been a 436% increase in illuminati slave children. See that kid playing with blocks? They’re evil blocks. See the ones on the jungle gym? It’s where they keep the human brains they’ve collected. It’s all about keeping your eyes open. Thanks Deebo, you don’t at all sound like a foil hat wearing conspiracy nut.

    • claire

      i will kick you in the nuts
      i got a hell of of a kick

    • Alyssa

      LOL! Go sarcasm! To start with I thought you were a nut too, but then I read the “you don’t at all sound like a foil hat wearing conspiracy nut” part and started laughing! lLol!

  • Jay

    Ok Deebo, Teddy I understand you dont like the show and think it has something to do with this, but seriously its a show for children merely for entertainment, please respect the opinions of others as calling people idiots isnt going to help yoursefs. Personally I enjoyed the show as a good story is a whole lot better than sitcoms. The actors tried their best and in the end they have done a good job.

    • Teddy

      I was being sarcastic, I actually really like the show.

      • lol4life

        Yea, I can taste the sarcasm in my mouth…

    • al marvin
