Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand to Premiere 'Knight Squad' on Monday 21st May 2018; New Episodes of 'School of Rock' S3 from Monday 7th May 2018

Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand will premiere Knight Squad, Nickelodeon’s newest live action comedy series, on Monday 21st May 2018 at 5:30pm (AEDT)! Set at a magical school for knights in training, where two mismatched students form an unlikely alliance to protect each other’s secret and pursue their dreams, new episodes of Knight Squad will continue to air regularly weekdays at 5:30pm (AEDT) on Nick AU/NZ.

Get ready for an enchanted series full of magic, castles and swords when two mismatched students at Knight School form an unlikely alliance to protect each other's secrets and pursue their dreams to become knights.

There is only one place in the magical land of Astoria where the young and fearless can train to become elite warriors - Knight School! Meet Ciara, the fierce and competitive star student who is hiding a colossal secret - she is the royal princess in disguise! Things only get crazier at school when Arc, a cocky and streetwise outsider, strolls in with a pretty big secret of his own.

This unlikely pair will have to team up if they want to become legendary knights. Teamed with two other students to form the Phoenix Squad, Ciara and Arc hope to outshine the school’s other squads for the honour of one day representing Astoria in battle. But in this fantastical kingdom full of powerful beasts, magical spells, and schoolyard frenemies, that might be harder than they think.

In the first ever episode, "Opening Knight", Ciara and Arc discover each other’s secret and the two become unlikely partners, banding together to achieve their dream of becoming legendary knights!

Knight Squad stars Owen Joyner (100 Things To Do Before High School) as "Arc," Daniella Perkins (Legendary Dudas, Blurt) as "Ciara," Amarr M. Wooten (American Housewife) as "Warwick," Lexi DiBenedetto (Modern Family) as "Prudence," Lilimar (Bella and the Bulldogs) as "Sage", Kelly Perine (Santa Hunters) as "Sir Gareth"; and Seth Carr as "Fizzwick". Guest stars include: Jack Griffo star as Sir Swayze; Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn star Lizzy Greene; Tenzing Norgay Trainor as "Jimbo"; and Maria Canals-Barrera (Danny Phantom, The Brothers Garcia) as Saffron.

Picked up for an initial 20 episodes, Knight Squad is created and executive produced by Sean Cunningham and Marc Dworkin, executive producers of The Thundermans, and being produced by Liv and Maddie producers John D. Beck and Ron Hart.

Knight Squad made its world premiere on Nickelodeon USA in February 2018, and will be rolling out on Nickelodeon channels and programming blocks globally throughout the year.

In additional news, Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand will start to premiere two weeks of brand-new episodes of School of Rock season three weekdays at 5:30pm (AEDT) from Monday 7th May 2018!

In the first new episode, "Heroes & Villains", comic books get banned at school, so Tomika (Australian born Breanna Yde) decides to create her own comic and accidentally upsets her friends by not drawing them in the best light.
