Plot Synopsis

A valiant girl, young Tripitaka, poses as a monk to liberate the Monkey King -- a god long trapped in stone -- in a quest to find seven sacred scrolls and save the world from evil. The series opens after a demon steals a magical crown from warrior monks, and an orphaned girl flees the monastery in a quest to awaken the long-petrified Monkey King. Tripitaka learns a troubling legend about Monkey, but the pair gains a surprising new ally before setting out to find the seven sacred scrolls. A demon jeopardizes the trio's quest before it even begins. Tripitaka makes a startling discovery about Pigsy, who makes a momentous decision. Netflix released THE NEW LEGENDS OF MONKEY on Friday, April 27, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT in the U.S.
THE NEW LEGENDS OF MONKEY returned for its 10-episode second season on Netflix on Friday, August 7, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT. In Season 2, the quest for sacred scrolls continues for the Monkey King and friends. But in a world of demons, gods and magic, everything comes at a cost. The new season opens with The Monkey King, Tripitaka, Pigsy and Sandy setting out in search of the sacred scrolls. Demons learn of Monkey's return and vow to destroy him. Then, at the Archive of Infinite Scrolls, Monkey and friends must solve --- and survive -- various riddles to gain access to the Scroll of Knowledge. Next, a shape-shifting demon uses her powers to assume Sandy's appearance, then kidnaps village children to make Monkey's group seem like the evil ones.
