Disney Channel is ready to roll. The network just announced the premiere date for season two of Just Roll With It.
The live-action family comedy allows the studio audience to choose in which direction key scenes will advance, and then the actors improvise. The series centers on preteens Blair (Kaylin Hayman) and Owen (Ramon Reed), newly minted step-siblings in Bennett-Blatt family. Blair’s mom Rachel (Suzi Barrett) recently married Owen’s dad, Byron (Tobie Windham), her co-worker at BEATZ 101. Now, with their lighthearted parents, Owen and Blair are trying to get the hang of everyday family life in a brand-new blended family.

J.C. Currais Becomes a Regular Cast Member and John Ratzenberger Joins in a Recurring Role
Raising the comedy stakes, the second season of the hybrid family sitcom/improvisation series “Just Roll With It” is set to premiere SUNDAY, MARCH 15 (8:45 p.m. EDT/PDT), on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW. Comedian J.C. Currais becomes a series regular cast member, in the fan-favorite role of Gator, and John Ratzenberger (Disney/Pixar’s “Toy Story,” “Cheers”) guest stars in a recurring role as Blair’s grandfather. The season also includes “wild” animals, real-life wedding vows with legal matrimony as part of a storyline and feats of epic proportions. The studio audience votes for wacky scenarios that the cast must improvise their way through during the show taping. Additional season two guest stars include Charles Shaughnessy (“The Magicians,” “The Nanny”), Johnny Pemberton (“Superstore”), Jason Earles (Disney’s “Hannah Montana”), Debra Wilson (“MADtv”), Jillian Shea Spaeder (Disney’s “Walk the Prank”) and Kingston Foster (Disney’s “ZOMBIES”).
“Just Roll With It” follows the newly blended Bennett-Blatt family as they navigate everyday family life and the ups and downs of adolescence. The series stars Tobie Windham and Suzi Barrett as fun-loving newlyweds and parents, Byron and Rachel; talented young actors Ramon Reed and Kaylin Hayman as preteen step-siblings, Owen and Blair; and J.C. Currais as The Gator.
In the season two premiere, the Bennett-Blatt family is finally rescued from the sea only to discover Rachel’s mischievous and somewhat unpredictable dad (Ratzenberger) – who relishes in being a doting but unruly Grandpa – has been kicked out of his retirement community and needs to move in with the family.
“Just Roll With It” was created and is executive produced by Adam Small and Trevor Moore (Disney’s “Walk the Prank”) with a production crew led by co-executive producer Skot Bright (Disney’s “Walk the Prank”).
The series is produced by Kenwood TV Productions, Inc., and is filmed in Los Angeles. It carries a TV-G parental guideline.”
