K.C. Cooper will be staying undercover for a while: Disney Channel has renewed K.C. Undercover for a third season.
Zendaya, who stars as the titular high-school spy, will return for Season 3, the network announced Tuesday. Her character K.C. Cooper’s parents are spies, so she has to balance normal teen stuff (homework, boys) with the demands of being a spy in training for top-secret government outfit The Organization. But she also gets to do a lot of cool karate kicks, so it’s not all bad.
K.C. Undercover has been a ratings winner for Disney Channel, with more than 2 million viewers tuning in for the Season 2 premiere in March. And Zendaya (an alum of Disney’s Shake It Up) is well on her way to becoming a superstar, with a runner-up finish in Season 16 of Dancing With the Stars and a big role in the upcoming superhero film Spider-Man: Homecoming.
“We’re very proud of the success of K.C. Undercover and how popular it is across our different platforms,” Disney Channel executive VP Adam Bonnett said in a statement. “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.”
Season 2 of K.C. Undercover is currently airing Sundays at 8/7c on Disney Channel.
