season four of Good Luck CharlieThe stories of the Duncan clan will continue. Disney Channel has announced that they’ve renewed their popular Good Luck Charlie TV show for a fourth season.

It’s unclear how many episodes have been ordered for season four (or four season three, for that matter) but seasons one and two had 26 and 30 installments, respectively. Nine episodes of season three have aired so far.

Here’s the Disney press release with some additional details:


A fourth season has been ordered for Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie,” a hugely popular family sitcom that recently delivered the #1 cable telecast of the week (8.9 million, L+7 data) and the #1 telecast of the entire second quarter 2012 among Kids 6-11 (4 million, L+7 data) and Tweens (3.7 million, L+7 data). The announcement was made today by Adam Bonnett, Senior Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide. The series presents authentic, kid-relatable stories told from the young characters’ POV yet more nuanced towards the family. The third season storyline recently introduced a newborn baby into the Duncan household.

“The success of ‘Good Luck Charlie’ is a testament to the strong comedic writing of the inventive creative team and characters so artfully brought to life by the talented cast. Every kid wants to be part of the Duncan family, and we look forward to telling more stories that engage and entertain viewers in a fresh and relevant way,” said Bonnett.

The series was created by Phil Baker and Drew Vaupen and is executive-produced by Baker, Vaupen and Dan Staley. Starring are: Bridgit Mendler as Teddy Duncan, Jason Dolley as PJ Duncan, Leigh-Allyn Baker as Amy Duncan, Bradley Steven Perry as Gabe Duncan, Mia Talerico as Charlie Duncan and Eric Allan Kramer as Bob Duncan. The current storyline recently introduced Baby Toby Duncan (casting will soon begin for the role).

In season four, Toby grows into a toddler and Charlie embarks on new play dates, while the entire Duncan household gets busier and is filled with entertaining milestones and daily amusements. Amy’s role as a full-time mommy blogger propels her to celebrity status; Bob has a career mid-life crisis and begins contemplating his next move; PJ develops a passion for the culinary arts; Gabe forms a special friendship with a girl; and, with college fast approaching, Teddy and Spencer evaluate their relationship.

    I’m so sad, I actually cried. I’m a 42 year old Mother of one child who is 3 years old. Since the age of 1, my daughter has been captivated by Good luck Charlie, I even enjoyed watching it with her. My days are filled with the Disney channel because she enjoys it so much. But I must say that I would find myself looking forward to episodes of Good luck Charlie and I would even continue to watch it when she would walk out of the room or late nights when she fell asleep. It was a wholesome and enjoyable show. The cast blend is phenomenal and they work together so well. I’m seriously going to miss Good Luck Charlie. Just as much as I’m going to miss these toddler years as my daughter grows older. We have so many special memories of watching this show. It’s certainly one of her favorites and mine. Goodbye Charlie, we will miss you! You made the Disney Channel an enjoyable viewing experience, even for parents.
