The pilot was shot in 2008 and the show itself has been described as "Men In Black at a suburban high school".[2] It also talks about the team catching monsters.

The show premiered to 3.5 million viewers in September 2009, right after iCarly's "iThink They Kissed".[3]In March 2010, the series was picked up for a second season.[4][5]

Main characters

  • Jake Collins (Nick Purcell) - The newest member of the Troop who is amazed to find out that monsters exist. He is shown to be quite a good artist who draws his own comic strips and reads comic books obsessively. Hayley and Felix often have to watch his back, because his instinct for danger often gets him into trouble. Hayley thinks he is a goofy slacker who doesn't take his job seriously. Jake seems to have a slight crush on Hayley, though it is unknown if he's been able to admit this to himself, or if Hayley feels the same. However, the sparks the two occasionally share were enough to draw the Eris Fairy, a mythical creature that breaks up loving couples.
  • Hayley Steele (Gage Golightly) - The most popular, and often considered the friendliest, girl at school. She is the classic overachiever--she does cheerleading, plays lacrosse, has been in ballet since she was little, is in student council, and does numerous other extracurriculars. She wants to go to Yale after high school,and is so into this vision that her favorite color is Yale Blue. She is very headstrong and, at one point, was ordered to take the weekend off of monster hunting so she could relax. Jake thinks she's extremely bossy and overbearing. She and Jake are good friends, but there have been hints of several hints of something more. In the episode Speed she was hurt when he said he was just doing his job when he told her he would never leave her if "he ever got the chance" to be her boyfriend, which he seemed to be honest about in the moment.
  • Felix Garcia (David Del Rio) - The nerd of the school, Felix is complex. He is just dying to tell someone about his involvement in the group so he can be the "cool" guy, but because of his oath he does nothing. He sees himself as a type of James Bond within The Troop who Jake and Hayley look up to, but in reality they both think he is just a stereotypical nerd. Felix is an off-the-charts genius. An expert on mysterious creatures and paranormal activity, he's fully prepared to take on any monster. Felix doesn't fit in at school, so The Troop are his closest friends. He fell for the Eris Fairy and was very disappointed when he found out she had a boyfriend back in her own dimension. She did kiss him on the cheek, however, and hint that that cute girl in chemistry has a crush on him, but he still doesn't know which girl or which class.
  • Mr. Stockley (John Marshall Jones) - The school administrator and the troop adviser he is undercover just like the kids. Mr. Stockley is The Troop's adult advisor, a job he takes very seriously. He keeps Jake, Hayley, and Felix up to date on recent monster activity, and makes sure they have the latest monster-fighting technology. However, when faced with a monster he panics, due to the fact that as you age you become less able to fight against monsters.

Recurring characters

  • Etienne (Eduard Witzke) - A funny and rather odd student in school who finds himself in the middle of many of episodes' action.
  • Cuddy (Dejan Loyola) - Jake's friend who has appeared in many episodes.
  • Angie (Brenna O'Brien) - A rather unpleasant girl who's a frenemy to Hayley.
  • Phoebe (Matreya Fedor) - Jake's little sister.
  • Gus (Chad Krowchuk) - A nerdy boy who is constantly picked on, but is known as one of the troop's worst nemises, seeing that he can gain control of the most powerful monsters on the planet and use them for his own evil ways. He is the main antagonist of the series.
  • Lance Donovan (Jean-Luc Bilodeau) - One of the The Troop members that apears in Tentacle Face
