Disney’s newest freshman comedy, Andi Mack, is coming back for a second season.
The first season of Andi Mack has seen strong and consistently growing ratings making the early renewal a no-brainer for the network. The series currently ranks as the #1 TV series of 2017 among Girls 6-11, Girls 9-14 and Girls 6-14 to date.
“There is not another series out right now – on any platform – that speaks to our core demographic with the authenticity and insight that Terri [Minsky] and her creative team have captured with Andi Mack,” stated Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, in a press release. “This series and these characters are well on their way to becoming this generation’s Lizzie McGuire.”
Disney has slated a “Back-to-Back ‘Andi Mack’” event on Friday, May 26 (5:00–9:00 p.m. EDT), which will allow new and old viewers to catch-up on all 8-episodes that have already aired. The following four weeks will see a new episode every Friday night which 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.
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.
