CBBC’s Wizards Vs Aliens is to return to screens later this year.
The series, which was created by Russell T Davies and Phil Ford brings magic and sci-fi together as 16-year-old wizard Tom Clarke and his scientific friend Benny attempt to stop the Nekross from creating big trouble for all of wizardkind.
The fast-paced adventure full of danger, fun and friendship, has been extended to a fourteen episode run for its second series.
Wizards Vs Aliens follows Tom and Benny’s journey as they meet new Aliens, new Wizards, and face their greatest challenges so far. With the Nekross threatening their most powerful attacks yet, it’s more important than ever that Tom and Benny work together to ensure the survival of both wizardkind and the Earth.
It’s a delight to be back on CBBC with a series which is wilder, bolder, deeper and funnier than ever, taking us from suburbia to the wilds of Tibet, encountering spaceships, magical worlds, haunted castles and galactic wars along the way. And at the centre of it all is the most important thing of all – the friendship between two boys, as junior wizard Tom and his best friend Benny fight to save the world. Magic and science are a combustible mix – and this year it’s going to explode! – Russell T Davies, creator and executive producer
