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", a rambunctious princess named Ciara and a and a mischievous drifter named Arc discover each other's secret and the two become unlikely partners, banding together to achieve their dream of becoming legendary knights!

Prior to the episode, viewers can watch the brand-new The Thundermans episode "Save the Past Dance" guest starring Knight Squad star Owen Joyner at 5:00pm, in which, tired of hearing tales of Hiddenville's legendary mayor, the kids use a time machine to travel back 60 years to disprove the myths; but when they inadvertently alter the past, the effect spells disaster for their hometown!
