Disney Channel will begin production this summer on Teen Beach Movie 2, the sequel to last summer’s Disney Channel Original Movie Teen Beach Movie. Ross Lynch (Austin & Ally and Hollywood Records’ R5), Maia Mitchell (The Fosters), Grace Phipps (Baby Daddy, The Vampire Diaries), Garrett Clayton (The Fosters), and John DeLuca (Twisted) will reprise their starring roles as Brady, McKenzie, Lela, Tanner, and Butchy, respectively. Additional casting will be announced shortly. Teen Beach Movie 2 will premiere in 2015 on Disney Channel.
The cast was reunited, Saturday, April 26 at the Radio Disney Music Awards where the announcement was made during ARDY’s Pre-Show Party, which is now available on WATCH Disney Channel.
The sequel is set months after surfer sweethearts McKenzie “Mack” and Brady return from a summer adventure that transported them into Brady’s favorite 1960s beach party movie, Wet Side Story, only to receive a surprise real world visit from Lela, Tanner, Butchy and their other newfound surfer and biker buddies.
Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, “The audience response to the first Teen Beach Movie was overwhelming. We are thrilled to have the cast back for a new music-driven saga that continues this fantastical story.”
