Monster High is now a place that accepts all who possess a true monster heart, and Clawdeen Wolf (Miia Haris), Frankie Stein (Ceci Balagot) and Draculaura (Nayah Damasen) are starting their sophomore year. A new year means new students, new powers, and potential new threats.
Clawdeen, Frankie and Draculaura are ready to have ‘their best year ever’. Clawdeen’s heroism from the previous year has become a viral sensation, but she isn’t enjoying the spotlight or the pressure that comes with it.
Clawdeen finds herself in a contest to become school prefect with a new student, Toralei Stripe (Salena Qureshi). Toralei wants to divide the students by turning them against half-bloods and witches. Meanwhile, Draculaura wants to bring peace between vampires and witches but the task will divide the trio and test their friendship.
