There is no denying that we have missed fictions in the last few months. Confined at home, we needed entertainment more than ever, and many had to turn to various online viewing platforms for food. Fortunately, the generalist networks will present us very soon with new content and series that we love.

In this sense, Télé-Québec continues in its youth tradition by offering us, as of August 24, the new series Mutants, dedicated to 8 to 10 year olds and who happily plunges into the fantastic. After the first two episodes, our curiosity is piqued. It will undoubtedly be a must-see family event this fall.

In Mutants, we meet Léo and Tom, two brothers who are parachuted to their grandfather, Zoubi, for the summer, in a small isolated village. The two orphans will have to deal with this new reality, far from the city, and forge new friendships. But in this small village there are some funny appearances. Leo and his new friends, Zoe and Marcus, will meet a creature that is initially disturbing, hidden in a barn. But how to help and save this … family in the midst of change? Friends will have to join forces and surpass their limits to get there.

Building on the success of the excellent The 422 (which we are still waiting for a sequel), Télé-Québec offers us with Mutants a daily routine that will undoubtedly captivate the whole family. I personally lived the experience of the first two episodes with my 7 and 11 year old sons who were asking for more after viewing.

The characters are highly endearing and the plot quickly becomes interesting, for the whole family. We also tackle familiar challenges for children, including anxiety, hyperactivity and even autism, quite naturally and without judgment. Rémy Girard imposed himself from the start, in his role of loving grandfather, but his habits changed. He is accompanied on screen by veterans Marilyse Bourke, Jean-François Beaupré, Salomé Corbo as well as young emerging talents Mathéo Piccinin-Savard, Philippe Scrive, Jade Brind’Amour, Alfred Poirier, and Vivi-Anne Riel, among others. Annie Langlois signs the texts, with several other hands, while several directors follow one another behind the camera, namely François Bégin, Stéphane Lapointe, Yann Tanguay, Pierre Théorêt, Eza Paventi. Once again, we seem to be working miracles with limited budgets.

Aired Monday to Friday at 6:30 p.m. on Télé-Québec starting August 24, the series Mutants definitely worth a look. We will want to know what is happening with this rapidly changing family that “haunts” the village. We will also take pleasure in seeing these beloved actors evolve in this fantastic context. Bravo to Télé-Québec for daring genre television and always having a thought for our young people.
