ATLANTA (Dec. 14, 2022) – UPtv, the television destination for uplifting entertainment, will debut season two of Mystic on Thursday, Jan. 12 at 8 p.m. ET. Based on New Zealand author Stacy Gregg’s bestselling book series “Pony Club Secrets,” Mystic is an award-winning family action adventure with a magical twist. Wild at Heart will premiere on the network Thursday, Jan. 19 at 8:30 p.m. ET. The series is about a veterinarian who moves his family from England to South Africa to rehabilitate a game reserve for wild animals.
Set on the fictional peninsula of Kauri Point, New Zealand, Mystic tells the story of Issie Brown and her new-found friendships with the town’s teen horse riders, and their efforts to save Kauri Point from the threat of industrial development. Season two takes place three months after the events of the first season. In the premiere episode, the gang uncovers a new threat to the forest and the wild herd of horses. Issie’s visions from Mystic become more mysterious than ever and a new arrival in town causes trouble for Issie and Dan. Mystic stars Macey Chipping, Laura Patch, Cathy Downes, Kirk Torrance, Antonia Robinson and Max Crean.
Wild at Heart is the story of an English family who moves to the South African bush to set up and run a game reserve. Tensions run high as Danny Trevanion, a widowed veterinarian, deals with a resentful teenage daughter after he gets married for a second time. As the Trevanions work together to revitalize the game reserve, they have a second chance at becoming a family. The series focuses on the trials and tribulations of the dysfunctional Trevanion tribe as they adjust to life in a very different land.
