Santa Monica, Calif. - Dec. 2, 2015 - Nickelodeon's music-infused daily scripted series, Make It Pop, returns for a 20-episode second season starting Monday, Jan. 4, at 7 p.m. (ET/PT). With all new songs and performances, heightened drama and lots of laughs, season two will continue to follow the coming-of-age journey of social-media maven Sun Hi (Megan Lee), bookish Corki (Erika Tham), fashion-forward Jodi (Louriza Tronco) and DJ Caleb (Dale Whibley) at Mackendrick Prep, who, out of their love of music, formed the band XO-IQ.
Faced with bigger challenges and higher stakes in season two, XO-IQ has yet to reunite after a number of setbacks. Corki is in danger of being removed from Mackendrick Prep by her father, Jodi is deciding if she should pursue her love of fashion, and now that Sun Hi is clashing with hotshot guitarist Linc, it looks like XO-IQ might be over, until a new band competition and rival boy band emerge and change everything.
