The spy comedy stars Zendaya as K.C. Cooper, a high school math whiz and martial arts expert turned international super spy for a secret government agency, who balances her teenage life with performing undercover missions to save the world.
Along with Zendaya — who will serve as producer on Season 3 — the series stars Kadeem Hardison, Tammy Townsend, Kamil McFadden, Trinitee Stokes and Veronica Dunne. The show, which debuted in January 2015, was created by Corinne Marshall. Rob Lotterstein serves as executive producer.
“We’re very proud of the success of ‘K.C. Undercover’ and how popular it is across our different platforms,” said Adam Bonnett, executive vice president of original programming for Disney Channels Worldwide. “The series will continue to deliver action sequences that push the boundaries of the multi-camera genre with the same great quality storytelling and talented cast led by the incomparable Zendaya and executive producer Rob Lotterstein.”
“I’m happy I get to continue making positive television for kids all over the world,” Zendaya tells Variety. “Stay tuned for season three — it’s going to be next level!”
Currently in the midst of its second season, airing Sunday nights at 8 p.m., “K.C. Undercover” has reached 106 million total viewers across all of Disney Channel’s platforms, including linear viewing, VOD and the Disney Channel app.
Zendaya got her start on the Disney Channel, starring in another show, “Shake It Up!” alongside former Disney starlet Bella Thorne. She also starred in the Disney Channel Original Movie “Zapped,” before “K.C. Undercover” premiered. The multi-hyphenate also competed on “Dancing With the Stars,” and recently had a guest role on “Black-ish.” The 20-year old sensation is boosting her credits with major gigs coming up, including Hugh Jackman’s “The Greatest Showman On Earth” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” After she wraps both of those films, production on Season 3 of “K.C. Undercover” will begin in early 2017.
Zendaya is repped by CAA.
