Disney Channel Sets Season 2 Premiere Date for ‘Jessie’ Spinoff ‘BUNK’D’

Season 2 of Disney Channel’s hit comedy series “BUNK’D” will debut this summer, Variety has learned exclusively.

“BUNK’D” — which is the spinoff to Disney’s popular Debby Ryan show “Jessie” — will be back on Tuesday, Aug. 23 with a new episode premiering each night at 8 p.m. through Friday, Aug. 26.

Following the jam-packed week of episodes, the series will return in its normal Friday night 8 p.m. timeslot on Sept. 16.

“In Season 2, our ‘BUNK’D’ characters will have even bigger adventures and even more fun. They will meet some great new campers, face new challenges, and continue to grow and experience life lessons, while strengthening and forming new lasting friendships,” said Pamela Eells O’Connell, creator and exec producer of the series, who also created “Jessie” and was a producer on Disney’s “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.”

“BUNK’D” stars Disney starlet Peyton List, and other characters from the original “Jessie” series. The show follows siblings Emma (List), Ravi (Karan Brar) and Zuri Ross (Skai Jackson) at Camp Kikiwaka, a rustic summer camp in Maine where their parents met as teenagers. “BUNK’D” also stars Miranda May as Lou, Kevin Quinn as Xander, Nina Lu as Tiffany and Nathan Arenas as Jorge.

The second season will introduce the newest Camp Kikiwaka member, Griff, played by Lincoln Melcher (“Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day”). The new season will feature the return of many fan-favorite guest stars and will feature a new set.
