In the earlier days of Seabrook, settlers fought off a group of werewolves for a moonstone that they have since kept hidden underground. In the present, time has passed since Seabrook and Zombietown settled their differences. Zed plans to ask Addison to Prawn, Seabrook's version of prom, while Addison works to lead her team of zombie and human cheerleaders against a team of more experienced, all human cheerleaders. Bucky announces he will be running for class president and, as a result, will be passing the cheer captaincy onto someone else, which both Addison and his sidekicks, the Aceys, show interest in. When the bus carrying the cheerleaders crashes into the nearby forbidden forest, Addison and the cheer team see werewolves, which causes the mayor to reinstate anti-monster laws. Zombies are banned from Prawn, so Zed decides to run for class president in order to go to Prawn with Addison.
Meanwhile, the local werewolves' power granting moonstone necklaces are losing their power. Prophecy states that a girl with white hair called the Great Alpha will show them where this moonstone is, leading the werewolves to enroll in Seabrook to become closer to Addison. Zed attempts to convince them to vote for him by offering them advice on how to assimilate into Seabrook, which they ignore because they value embracing their werewolf traits over blending in. At cheer practice, Addison convinces the werewolves to join in; as Zed and Eliza walk in, they suspect that Wyatt, one of the werewolves, likes Addison, which makes Zed jealous and starts a fight between him and Addison.
The werewolves eventually bring Addison to their den, where they tell her the prophecy, and give her a fully charged moonstone necklace, which they have saved for the Great Alpha. If she puts it on and is truly a werewolf, she will transform into one. The werewolves agree to give her one day to decide. The werewolves reveal that the destruction of the power plant will cause the moonstone buried underneath to be destroyed. The next day, Addison shows Zed the necklace, and Zed takes it when she is not looking. Zed goes to his presidential debate against Bucky and wins over the humans, but when the Z-band shorts out due to Addison's moonstone, Zed becomes a full zombie, which causes Zed to lose the election.
Meanwhile, the werewolves head to Seabrook Power and face off against the Zombie Patrol. Addison and Bree hear the alarm from school and realize that they need to help the werewolves. The werewolves get arrested at the demolition site. Addison arrives with the cheerleaders and zombies, who get the adults to agree not to destroy the building.
They all go outside to celebrate, and Zed reveals to Addison that he took the necklace from her. She gets mad at him and puts on the necklace, but finds out that she's not a werewolf (or thinks she is not a werewolf because the moonstone necklace shorts out when Addison’s moonstone got stuck to Zed’s Z-band). The device controlling the demolition shorts out and causes the whole building to be destroyed.
Prawn night arrives and Zed, as well as the rest of the zombies and werewolves, show up to crash Prawn. Everyone dances and Zed and Addison make up; however, the ground starts shaking and splits in half with a blue glow from the hole. The werewolves realize that the moonstone is not destroyed and go in the hole to find it; the humans and zombies follow to help. They find the moonstone, but a huge boulder blocks their exit. Zed removes his Z-band and uses his zombie strength to lift the boulder and allows the others to bring the moonstone out safely. They all go back to Prawn where Zed and Addison have their first kiss.
Later, a blue glowing rock falls from the sky at night. This causes Addison's alarm clock to briefly short out; later, after waking up, her hair glows bright blue for a short moment.
