Airdate: Mako: Island of Secrets
TEN joins in the global roll-out of the H2O spin-off later this month.
The series by Jonathan M. Shiff stars Lucy Fry, Amy Ruffle and Ivy Latimer and was recently announced as having a landmark international roll-out via Netflix on July 26 (known as Mako Mermaids).
Real life mermaids Sirena, Nixie and Lyla are part of a mermaid pod, which lives in the waters of Mako Island.
As young members of the pod, it is their job to protect the Moon Pool and guard it from trespassers.
But on the night of a full moon, the mischievous mermaid girls neglect their duties. Sixteen-year-old land dweller Zac (Chai Romruen) enters the Moon Pool and forms a special connection with Mako. Zac is given a fish-like tail and amazing powers.
The mermaid pod is forced to leave Mako. Sirena (Amy Ruffle), Nixie (Ivy Latimer) and Lyla (Lucy Fry) are left behind, cast out of the pod. The mermaid girls know there is only one way they will be allowed to rejoin the pod. They must get legs, venture onto land and take back Zac‘s powers or risk being outcasts forever.
