    But what about Gravity Falls?!?!

  • jamie

    Gravity Falls has already been renewed by Disney.

    Again, it’s good to see, Disney continues to renew their hits, unlike Sickelodeon, who canceled all their shows, except for the awful Spongebob.

    @Jamie, Okay thanks. Nickandmore didn’t mention that. They just said “new episodes”, which could have meant the 7 episodes of season one that didn’t air yet.

    I love watching Jessie with my kids and we love Debby Ryan. She is beautiful, funny and appears to have navigated Hollywood without any controversy. I have a problem with how kid’s shows portray adults. They seem to be the bumbling butt of the jokes or pretty clueless while the kids run them around.

    While it has recently started to push boundaries and it bothers me to see Jessie insulted by the kids. I liked that Jessie is that cool, loving adult in charge. While I am happy for a third season, I can’t help but be a little concerned with the executive’s statement about the “kids navigating adulthood and putting the nanny in new and entertaining situations. ” I hope they do not degrade Ryan and especially make adults the tired, unimaginative stereotypical Disney route where the adults are inconsequential. I love my kids having the hero in Debby Ryan and in Jessie to look up to.
