Shot on location in Auckland, Mystic is a family eco-thriller with a supernatural twist. In season two, the ghostly white stallion Mystic brings a new mystery to Issie and her gang of horse-mad friends. Not only will they have to tackle all the usual trials and tribulations of being a teenager but battle against new and unexpected threats to their beloved stables and local environment. British actor Macey Chipping returns in the lead role of Issie Brown. Also joined once again by New Zealanders Antonia Robinson, Max Crean, Jacqueline Joe, Josh Tan, and Harriet Walton.
The series has been praised for the way it handles topical issues for kids and young people, as well as tackles environmental issues. In December 2021, Mystic was named Best Children’s Programme at the 2021 Asian Academy Creative Awards and won both the Special Jury Award and the Audience Award for Best Drama Series at the prestigious Festival Jeunesse D’Ecran in France in November 2021.
