Disney Channel’s ‘Jessie’ Renewed for Fourth Season

Disney Channel's 'Jessie' Renewed Fourth Season

Jessie and the Ross kids will return next year for a fourth season of Disney Channel comedy “Jessie,” the network announced today.

The live-action family fave, whose third season is currently airing, will begin production on season four in August, to premiere in January on the network.

For 2014 to date, “Jessie” is TV’s No. 1 telecast in its time period, and overall, it’s TV’s No. 2-rated live-action series, in kids 2-11 (1.6 million/4.0 rating) and kids 6-11 (1.3 million/5.4 rating), and the No. 4 TV series in tweens 9-14 (1.2 million/4.8 rating).  Its most recent episode, last Friday, averaged 2.38 million same-night viewers and was the night’s No. 1 program (broadcast and cable) in teens and other younger demos, according to Nielsen.

“Jessie,” which bowed in September 2011, stars Debby Ryan as a young Texas woman who moves to New York City and becomes a nanny for a family with children adopted from India, Africa and America.

One episode in the current season will be directed by the 21-year-old Ryan, who also serves as a producer on the show. And an upcoming storyline is the engagement of Jessie and her beau Brooks.

Kevin Chamberlin, Peyton List, Karan Brar, Cameron Boyce and Skai Jackson co-star. The series, a production of It’s A Laugh Productions, Inc., was created by Pamela Eells O’Connell, who serves as executive producer.

Adam Bonnett, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide, said: ” ‘Jessie’ is a fan favorite for kids and families all around the world.  Pam Eells and the entire team behind ‘Jessie’ have made this television family a huge global hit. Our audience gets to continue the journey with these characters, watching the Ross kids grow up with Jessie guiding the way for them.”

    Wow really they were #1 when Michelle Obama came on is that ever a big shock oh wait no it isn’t although I think it’s disgusting that the 1st lady took complete advantage of her position to go on a show just to boost the ratings doesn’t matter what the show was about the fact is she used her unique position as 1st lady of this country and totally took that title and dissed it by using it on a entertainment show and Disney took full advantage of it why shouldn’t they they want their show to succeed so why not use the job of 1st lady to up their shows. Worse part is that Jessie is nothing but a bully of a show that laughs at Ravi getting teased and picked on at school and the kids and Jessie included terrorizing the butler simply because they can. Of two parents who leave the entire care and welfare of their kids to hired staffs even after they went to the point of adopting some. The parents of this age amaze me they’ll let their kids watch anything and then they wonder why kids are shooting up schools, committing suicide way to often. Cutting themselves to somehow make themselves feel better and becoming social idiots. Well you reap what you sow folks. Then Disney proclaims that they are trying to fight bullying how exactly does that work when you support and encourage a show that only treats people indifferently and encourages kids to laugh at bullying antics interesting set of do as I say not as you see. I doubt Disney would have been very proud
