The official synopsis of The Thundermans Return was also unveiled by Paramount+, saying:
“After three years of fighting crime in their new city of Metroburg, The Thundermans are suddenly stripped of their assignment and sent back to Hiddenville. While Hank and Barb look forward to their return ‘home’, Chloe develops new friend groups, Billy and Nora enjoy a normal school life, and Max and Phoebe are determined to regain their superhero status. The movie will feature the return of show favorites, new villains and familiar locations.”
The Thundermans Recently Reclaimed Their Popularity
The Thundermans Return is the follow-up to the highly popular TV series that ran for four seasons on
Nickelodeon, from 2013 to 2018. Throughout its run, the kids’ series ranked as number one on the network, but recently it reclaimed its popularity once the episodes debuted on streaming platforms – according to Paramount, it became once again the top-ranking title among kids aged 6 to 11.
For the movie, Paramount and Nickelodeon managed to round up the whole main cast: Kira Kosarin returns as Phoebe, Jack Griffo as Max, Addison Riecke as Nora, Diego Velazquez as Billy, Maya Le Clark as Chloe, Chris Tallman as Hank and Rosa Blasi as Barb. The Thundermans Return is directed by Trevor Kirschner, a long-time Thundermans collaborator who directed several episodes of the TV series. The script is written by Jed Spingarn, who penned the bulk of The Thundermans episodes and also wrote for Big Time Rush and Pinky and the Brain.
The Thundermans Return is set to premiere in March on Nickelodeon channels worldwide and on Paramount+ in the markets in which the streaming platform is available. A specific release date is yet to be announced.
