Plot Synopsis

MONICA THE MEDIUM is a one-hour reality series that follows Monica Ten-Kate, a 21-year-old junior at Penn State, who juggles studies, friends and family, boys and bills -- all while being a Spirit Medium who can communicate with those who have passed over. Monica uses her gift of communicating with Spirit to bring through details, facts, names, memories and more, to validate the connection to people's loved ones on the Other Side and to deliver healing messages they may have. In the premiere episode, Monica and her roommates decide to throw a back-to-school party and invite friends and fellow students alike. During the party, she keeps getting strong vibes from a guy behind her who she's never met. Unable to ignore it any longer, she finally turns around and does a spot-on spontaneous reading for him. Later, she agrees to let her best friend, Krista, set her up on a blind date, after years of struggling to meet a guy who isn't freaked out by her gift. But as she shops for dresses and gets a mani-pedi, Spirit keeps interrupting, making her nervous that it'll happen in front of a potential love interest. Then, in the show's second episode, Monica's roommates and sisters insist she get a real job to help pay for her share of the bills. When Monica starts applying, she gets a lot of startled looks from employers who find out she's a Spirit Medium. After accepting an offer to work at a boutique, she tries her best to suppress her gifts but ends up reading several customers. Season 2 of MONICA THE MEDIUM premiered on Monday, April 25, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT on Freeform. Monica and her BFF/roommate Krista decide to move to California. After harsh winters in State College, Pennsylvania, the girls have resolved to change their lives completely and head out to San Diego, where there is plenty of sunshine, new opportunities and new people to help. They have to find a place to live, take on roommates Kayla and Kirsten, sign up for classes at a different school and reestablish Monica's medium business on a different coast. Monica will still have to juggle her time between friends, family, boys, bills, school and spirits, with living near the beach as an added distraction. In Season 2, she befriends world renowned medium James Van Praagh, joining him to co-host a group reading. In addition, this season will find her giving readings at a truck stop, during a surf lesson and at a mud run - and even reading her new roommate. While initially nervous about people's reactions to her gift, she finds she is embraced and ends up bringing healing messages of love, forgiveness, humor and hope to dozens of people, in private one-on-one sessions, group readings and chance encounters with strangers on the street.
On Monday, June 27, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, Freeform premiered the Season 2 finale of MONICA THE MEDIUM. In the season ender, "School Spirit," Monica thinks the time is right to host her first solo event on campus and recruits her roommates for help. But the pressure of filling a large venue and sharing her gift with her peers leads Monica to break down. Monica and Tyler's relationship continues to progress, but while on a date, Monica encounters a woman still grieving the tragic death of her mother many years before. Meanwhile, the group decides to celebrate Kayla's graduation with a surprise paintball game.
