Mako: Island of Secrets (international title Mako Mermaids: An H2O Adventure) is the spin-off series of H2O: Just Add Water.

Zac is played by Chai Romruen, Erik is played by Alex Cubis and the mermaids are played by Isabel Durant, Allie Bertram, Lucy Fry, Ivy Latimer, and Amy Ruffle.

Mako Mermaids made its debut in the US, Canada, UK and Ireland on July 26, 2013 on Netflix. Australian television station TV Ten also debuted Mako Mermaids on the same date. In season 2, aired on February 13, 2015 on Netflix, the producer said that the mermaids from H2O: Just Add Water may appear as mermaids claiming that they still have their old tails from the show.

Mako Mermaids series 1 was originally planned as a prequel to H2O: Just Add Water but as season two developed, the creator of the show decided it would actually be a sequel. A character from H2o is set to appear in season three. Many fans believe it is likely to be Cariba Heine to play as Rikki Chadwick. He has also confirmed that if any characters from H2O showed up, they would be playing as young adults because in real life they are much older than the characters in the Mako cast. [1]

Overview

Season One

Three mermaids, Sirena, Nixie, and Lyla, are assigned with the task of protecting their magical Mako Island from trespassers, only to be thwarted by the arrival of a 16 year old land-dweller Zac – who forms a special connection with the island and is granted a blue fish-like tail and amazing marine powers. Threatened by his existence, the mermaid pod are forced to move away, abandoning Sirena, Nixie, and Lyla, who in a bid for survival, must get legs, venture onto land, and take back Zac's powers or risk being outcasts forever.

Season Two

Season 2 Cast

Season 2 cast

Two new mermaids arrive (Allie Bertram and Isabel Durant play new mermaids Mimmi and Ondina, respectively) and are afraid that Zac is a threat to mermaid pods everywhere, but what they don't realize is that there is another merman in addition to Zac in town (Alex Cubis plays Erik) bent on seizing Mako Island for himself.

The mystery of Mako deepens, when Zac discovers the ruins of an ancient Merman Chamber. The entrance to it opens up on a full moon, just like with the Trident Chamber.

This season also sees Zac's girlfriend Evie turn into a mermaid. Zac also meets Erik, another merman who investigates and wants to unlock the chamber. Cam slowly gains Zac's trust again, and by the end, he decides that his desire to be a merman is not worth losing his best friend again. New pairings for season 2 include Erik/Ondina and Cam/Carly.

Season Three

Weilan, a teenage Chinese mermaid from the eastern pod, discovers a mysterious relic underwater and releases a terrifying water dragon. Weilan flees to Mako for sanctuary but the dragon follows. When the fearsome creature threatens not only the Mako pod but the Gold Coast, Zac, Evie, Ondina, Mimmi and Weilan must find a way to destroy the dragon before it destroys all that they have worked so hard to save.[2]

Confirmed cast members include: Isabel Durant (Ondina), Allie Bertram (Mimmi), Chai Romruen (Zac), Gemma Forsyth (Evie), Kerith Atkinson (Rita), Linda Ngo (Weilan)[3] and Taylor Glockner (Chris).

She is the mediator and peacekeeper between Lyla and Nixie. She's a really beautiful soul and a bit naive, but that can work to her disadvantage. Sirena has a strong connection to her sister Aquata, who gave her her moonring. In Season 2, Sirena has returned to her pod, but is forced to return to Mako Island when Mimmi and Ondina go against the council's will to try and remove Zac's powers.
  • Zac Blakely (Chai Romruen): Zac is 16 years old and is the main character of Mako Mermaids. He goes camping on Mako Island, than falls into the Moon Pool which causes him to receive long lost merman powers. Zac is sporty and grew up surfing. Zac's powers include the ability to move objects with the mind, and the ability to control water with the mind, as well as expanding it and molding it into a variety of shapes. Zac later finds out he was born a merman and his true connection to Mako.
  • Ondina (Isabel Durant): Ondina is a mermaid from the Mako Pod. She's a reckless girl who takes things into her own hands, but is learning to care for others with gentleness.

  • Erik (Alex Cubis): Erik is a merman who moves to Mako in Season Two. He befriends the mermaids and Zac, but soon loses most of their trust. Erik shows infatuation to Ondina and they later become a couple. Erik's obsessive curiosity with the Merman Chamber located on Mako eventually leads him to almost destroying all mermaids across the world, resulting in him losing all trust from the mermaids and leaves the Gold Coast.
  • Cam Mitchell (Dominic Deutscher): Cam is Zac's best friend, and appears to be a lifeguard. He knows about Zac's secret, and knows that Nixie, Sirena, and Lyla are mermaids. He has always been Zac's equal, but things change when Zac becomes a merman. Towards the end of the season, after Zac locked the Trident away again, Cam convinced Nixie to help him reopen the Trident chamber and pull it out yet again. In episode 26, "Decision Time", it is revealed that Cam's real purpose and intent all along was to steal the Trident and gain a merman tail for himself so that he could rule over Mako Island. Although this secret plot changed the nature of Zac and Cam's relationship as best mates, in season 2, Zac and Cam begin to work things out. After becoming a couple with Carly, Cam comes to accept his role as a land dweller and chooses loyalty over power.
  • Evie McLaren (Gemma Forsyth): Evie is Zac's girlfriend, and feels Zac is hiding something when he frequently pulls away, so she tries to find out whatever he is hiding.

They have apparently been dating for 8 months, but have been close to each other since they were six years old.
