Apr 24, 2019  •  Post A Comment

Disney Channel announced plans to wrap up a series that the channel says is its most-watched series overall year-to-date and its highest-rated show in kids 6-14. The channel will begin airing the final episodes of “Andi Mack” on Friday, June 21.

Two episodes of the series will air that night, with the series finale set for July 26.

“‘Andi Mack’ was a labor of love for a room of impassioned, inventive writers, a talented and dedicated crew, and an extraordinary, miraculous cast who inspired us all,” said series creator and executive producer Terri Minsky. “We had the honor of breaking a lot of new ground for Disney Channel. We were its first serialized show, its first series centered around an Asian American family, and its first to feature an LGBTQ character who spoke the words ‘I’m gay.’ But the best part of making ‘Andi Mack’ was our audience, who let us know we mattered to them. The series finale is for them.”
