Tomorrow starts today. Disney Channel has renewed its live-action Andi Mack TV show for a second season, about a month before the season one finale airs. Although the renewal is not yet posted to the Disney-ABC press site, Deadline has confirmed it.
A coming of age series, Andi Mack centers on Andi (Peyton Elizabeth Lee). When her sister Rebecca or “Bex” returns, Andi learns the woman is actually her biological mother, and that Celia (Lauren Tom), the woman who raised her, is actually her grandmother. The Disney Channel TV show also stars Joshua Rush, Sofia Wylie, Asher Angel, Stoney Westmoreland, and Emily Skinner. Trent Garrett recurs.
