Fans of Disney Channel’s Andi Mack have reason to celebrate today as the network has just announced they’ve renewed the show for a second season. On the strength of strong and consistently growing ratings over its first seven original telecasts, Disney Channel has quickly ordered a second season of the contemporary comedic series about a 13-year-old girl’s typical – and not so typical – life with her family and friends. Production will resume in Salt Lake City in July.
Andi Mack was created and is executive produced by Terri Minsky (Lizzie McGuire). Michelle Manning (The Breakfast Club, Disney Channel Original Movies Adventures in Babysitting and Teen Beach 2) is also an executive producer. Phil Baker (Disney Channel’s Good Luck Charlie) is co-executive producer.
Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, “There is not another series out right now – on any platform – that speaks to our core demographic with the authenticity and insight that Terri and her creative team have captured with Andi Mack. This series and these characters are well on their way to becoming this generation’s Lizzie McGuire.
As Andi Mack increasingly engages viewers and prepares for an imminent debut on Disney Channels around the world, several programming events are scheduled including “Back-to-Back Andi Mack” on Friday, May 26th (5:00–9:00 p.m. EDT). Then, four weeks of new episodes each Friday will culminate with Andi convinced that her parents Bex and Bowie are destined to be together. Meanwhile, Jonah Beck and Amber reach a pivotal moment in their relationship.
Andi Mack stars Peyton Elizabeth Lee as Andi Mack, Lilan Bowden as Bex Mack, Lauren Tom as Celia Mack, Joshua Rush as Cyrus Goodman, Sofia Wylie as Buffy Driscoll and Asher Angel as Jonah Beck. Recurring cast members are Stoney Westmoreland as Henry “HAM” Mack, Emily Skinner as Amber and Trent Garrett as Bowie Quinn.
