The show's creator unveiled a new series in partnership with Netflix as part of its slate of original live-action content for Family Channel.[5]

Netflix split up the first season into two halves. The first released on October 18, 2023 and the second half (released as season 2) released on April 4, 2024.[6]


On Decider.com said Adults tend to know what to expect from kid-oriented comedies with teens or tweens. Lots of fast-talking, precocious kids, with some over-the-top gags. But they also expect a story full of friends, family and at least some sort of interesting backstory for the characters. The main character in a new Netflix tween series certainly has that interesting backstory.[7]

Shabnam Jahan said in Leisure byte "Netflix has a special way of introducing new teen series, and they never fail to impress. They really know how to grab the audience’s attention, and this show is no exception. The story is fascinating; it revolves around a teenage girl who has no idea about her true identity until she turns thirteen. Suddenly, her world is completely turned upside down when she learns that she’s half human and half vampire. What’s great about this show is that it tackles universal themes, making it more than just a supernatural thriller. It’s a relatable coming-of-age story that resonates with a wide range of viewers".[8]
