Disney XD Renews Superhero Series ‘Mighty Med’ for Season 2 (Exclusive)

The kids’ network’s most-watched and highest-rated series will return in fall 2014 for its sophomore season

Disney XD has ordered a second season of superhero comedy series, “Mighty Med,” TheWrap has learned.

As the current freshman season continues, the series will go back into production in Los Angeles in July for a fall 2014 second season return.

When it comes to ratings, the series has been leaping above the competition. Its October 2013 launch ranked as the No. 1 program in its time period among the network’s target boy demographics. And currently, “Mighty Med” holds the network’s highest total viewers and ratings across all key demos.

He continued, “Our fans have embraced the show and its talented cast, and we look forward to delivering more action-packed and comical adventures in Season 2.”

From It’s A Laugh Productions, Inc., “Mighty Med” was created by executive producer Jim Bernstein (“Phineas and Ferb”) and co-executive producer Andy Schwartz (“Scrubs”). Stephen Engel (“The Big Bang Theory”) also serves as an executive producer.
