The wildly successful sitcom “BUNK’D” has been ordered for a fourth season by Disney Channel. Production will begin in March 2019 on the series starring fan-favorite Miranda May as Lou Hockhauser, the cheerful Woodchuck counselor turned owner of Maine’s rustic Camp Kikiwaka summer camp. The series also stars Mallory James Mahoney (Disney Channel’s “Adventures in Babysitting”), Raphael Alejandro (ABC’s “Once Upon a Time”) and Will Buie Jr. (“Gifted) as the campers who return with Lou to create a summer of fun and friendship for a new group of young campers. Additional casting is to be announced.
The fourth season will be executive produced by Emmy(R)-nominated producer Phil Baker (“Andi Mack,” “Good Luck Charlie”) and Erin Dunlap (“Andi Mack,” “Jessie”).
Kory Lunsford, vice president, Current Series, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, “On the heels of a successful third season, we’ve decided that there is more fun to be had at Camp Kikiwaka! We are excited to gear up for another season with the campers from Woodchuck, Grizzly and Weasel cabins as they embark on hilarious new adventures, reunite with beloved characters and meet new ones.”
Created by Pamela Eells O’Connell, “BUNK’D” began as a spin-off to Disney Channel’s hit series “Jessie” (2011-15). Actors Peyton List, Skai Jackson and Karan Brar starred in both series and after 98 episodes of “Jessie” and 58 episodes of “BUNK’D,” they concluded their run on the series. List and Brar also made their directorial debuts with episodes of “BUNK’D.”
“BUNK’D” is from It’s a Laugh Productions, Inc. It carries a TV-G parental guideline.”
