Disney Channel has ordered a second season of Just Roll With It and entered into an overall development deal with the comedy series’ creators and executive producers, Adam Small and Trevor Moore.

Just Roll With It follows the newly blended Bennett-Blatt family as they navigate family life and adolescence. Combining a scripted family sitcom with improvisational elements, the series enables the studio audience to vote on the outcome of certain scenes. It stars Tobie Windham and Suzi Barrett as fun-loving newlyweds and parents to preteens Owen (Ramon Reed) and Blair (Kaylin Hayman).

Per the overall deal, Small and Moore will continue to write and produce programming for Disney Channel and Disney+. Production on season two of Just Roll With It will commence in September. This fall, Disney Channel will present a special one-hour live telecast of the series, Just Roll With It: You Decide LIVE!, directed by Emmy-nominated director Sandra Restrepo. It will air on Friday, October 4, at 9 p.m.

Kory Lunsford, VP of original programming for Disney Channel, said: “Adam and Trevor, along with the talented cast, crew and creative team at Just Roll With It, have exceeded our expectations and delivered a truly one-of-a-kind series. The hilarious scenarios voted on by the studio audience, along with the improv elements, create an unpredictable, fun and exciting show for viewers, and we can’t wait to see what new surprises are in store for next season.”

Jonas Agin, VP of original series for Disney Channel, added: “Adam and Trevor are two of the most innovative showrunners that I know. Their mastery of mashing-up genres and formats is just as inspiring as their ability at telling unexpected stories with inspired characters. I can’t wait for our audience to see how they make the impossible become possible in the future content they create for us under this deal.”
