Disney Channel has ordered a sophomore season of the animated comedy Amphibia ahead of the show’s debut.

The series is set to bow on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW on Monday, June 17, at 10 a.m., with new episodes airing daily throughout the week. Alongside the series’ premiere, an immersive role-playing game called “Amphibia: Locust Pocus” will be available on DisneyNOW, and a series of shorts titled Teen Girl in a Frog World will roll out in August on Disney Channel YouTube.

Amphibia chronicles the adventures of Anne Boonchuy (voiced by Brenda Song) after she is transported to a marshland full of frog people, where she forms new friendships. Starring alongside Song in the series are Justin Felbinger (Disney Junior’s Miles From Tomorrowland), Amanda Leighton (This Is Us) and Bill Farmer, who voiced Disney’s classic Goofy character.

The series also boasts a long list of celebrity guest voices, including Veep’s Tony Hale. Created and executive produced by Matt Braly (Gravity Falls), Amphibia is produced by Disney Television Animation.

Meredith Roberts, senior VP of animation strategy at Disney Channels, said, “Matt and his team have created an imaginative new world in Amphibia, with multifaceted, relatable lead characters who throughout the series will experience transformational journeys. We are excited to introduce these new characters as part of our Disney Channel animation lineup and can’t wait for viewers to follow along on their adventures.”
