Once they were in Miss Bustier's class they were all to wish her a happy birthday, but Alya's happiness was turned into shock when Marinette's gift was ruined by Chloe. But when she saw that her teacher wasn't upset, Alya said that Chloe was worse than Hawk Moth and was told by Miss Bustier to keep an eye on everything while she and Marinette talked outside.

She was horrified when Miss Bustier came back akumatized as Zombizou, but thanks to Ladybug's intervention Alya and the rest of her classmate escaped. From Sabrina who was affected by Zombizou, they all quickly found out that the kisses were contagious and hid in the Locker Room. Upon Ladybug's arrival inside Alya came out of her hiding place relieved and saw that everyone was fine but Adrien wasn't accounted for; finding him in his locker she was frightened that he was another victim (albeit pretending). Figuring he must have been affected saving Chloe as the zombies come in Alya and everyone moved to the roof. But from the news when she figured out Chloe was the cause of all this she didn't hesitate to give into the villain's demands but was prevented by Ladybug.

With the roof no longer safe Alya and her friends move to a nearby bus and during a ride to the Eiffel Tower, Alya stayed to close to Nino. On the way there they were shocked that Juleka, Rose and Alix became infected too, exiting the bus they all quickly to the tower. And yet, Zombizou's minions were already there and Alya was the next one to become infected knowing it was already too late she told Ladybug to leave and save them all. Fully zombified Alya embraced all fully prepared Nino after Zombizou's defeat she was returned to normal by the Miraculous Ladybug.

During school the next day, Alya demanded that Chloe apologized to everyone for the trouble she caused. Chloe retorted that they should be thanking her for saving by Alya said she had many resources that said otherwise. But she was pulled away by Marinette after she took back what she said earlier at their desks Alya asked if she was still a zombie. Heard Marinette say that Chloe can be good too as long as they continue to show a good example and Alya was surprised that Chloe left a gift for Miss Bustier with their class starting.

In "Syren", Alya was called upon by Ladybug to help her and Cat Noir round up some escaped zoo animals. Using her Mirage powers to secure the panthers with a trail of meat. After that Alya returned the Fox Miraculous and told Ladybug to call upon her again but realized she was late to the movies with Nino, Juleka, Rose, Alix, Max, Kim and Marinette. Once there Alya discovered that Marinette wasn't here yet and decided to wait for her after she arrived they hurried into the theater. However, the movie was cut short when the building started to flood. On the roof, Alya noticed that Marinette in the water and asked where she was going and heard her say she was going to find help.

In "Anansi", Alya was playing a synchronize dancing with Nino as Marinette and Adrien watched, soon her older sister Nora come home. When she asked why her friends were still here Alya explained they were going to see the World Cup tournament fireworks but Nora was strictly against it due to the times she was put in danger and refused to let anyone mess with family. But Alya reminded her sister about what happened at the square. Although admiring her sister's concern but Alya says that she doesn't need protecting and became surprised that Nino offered to protect her. And after Nora challenged Nino to an arm wrestle and purposely won she told Nino to deal with defeat and left to the fireworks with her friends.

When Alya saw a new akumatized villain on the scene she filming for her blog but became disheartened when the villain was her sister. To make matters worse she was taken prisoner by Anansi and when she spotted Nino she told him to run but was glad Ladybug and Cat Noir came to rescue but Cat Noir ended up a prisoner with her. She saw Nino fight off Anansi and when the cat commented on her friend's fighting ability, Alya hoped Ladybug would get back soon. After the heroine arrived Alya saw her appear with a new ally at first she was in awe about him but was suspicious when he spoke similarly to her friend. With the mystery heroes new power, she and the heroes were safely put on the ground, she was relieved that Nora was okay and marveled at the sight of the new hero asking for his name for her blog.

The hero was called Carapace after Nino and Marinette returned Alya comment about what Nino tried to do for her and saw her sister and Nino make up. Then, the gang enjoyed a day at the ice rink.

In "Style Queen", Alya attended Gabriel's fashion to be Marinette's support along with her parents and she pointed out to Tom and Sabine that Marinette is very nervous because this was her first fashion show. But the fashion show was interrupted by Style Queen and Alya was horrified when Adrien was turned into a gold statue and yet she managed to escape with everyone else. She followed Style Queen all the way to the Eiffel Tower as Alya climbed up she kept filming and was soon spotted by Ladybug.

Saying that she wanted to be in the middle of the action Alya was offered the Bee Miraculous by Ladybug. But before she could open it they were attacked by Style Queen and Alya pushed Ladybug out causing only her to become a gold statue. But she was revived by the Miraculous Ladybug (superpower) and returned to the fashion show.

In "Queen Wasp", during the fashion show, Alya streamed to her Ladyblog website viewing Adrien's modeling and Marinette asking for comments about her derby her. She was even more so surprised to be streaming Gabriel's live appearance knowing he hasn't be seen in a long time. And watched Adrien get embraced by his father before heading home.

In "Malediktator", while in class Alya, along with Alix, dissed Chloe about being a real superhero and showed what really happened during the events of "Queen Wasp" knowing it was Cat Noir and Ladybug the ones who actually saved the day. Then, she saw Chloe storm out of the classroom and when Alya heard that Chloe was moving to New York, Alya was ecstatic.
