A fourth season has been ordered for Disney Channel's "Good Luck Charlie," a hugely popular family sitcom that recently delivered the #1 cable telecast of the week (8.9 million, L+7 data) and the #1 telecast of the entire second quarter 2012 among Kids 6-11 (4 million, L+7 data) and Tweens (3.7 million, L+7 data). The announcement was made today by Adam Bonnett, Senior Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide. The series presents authentic, kid-relatable stories told from the young characters' POV yet more nuanced towards the family. The third season storyline recently introduced a newborn baby into the Duncan household.

"The success of 'Good Luck Charlie' is a testament to the strong comedic writing of the inventive creative team and characters so artfully brought to life by the talented cast. Every kid wants to be part of the Duncan family, and we look forward to telling more stories that engage and entertain viewers in a fresh and relevant way," said Bonnett.

The series was created by Phil Baker and Drew Vaupen and is executive-produced by Baker, Vaupen and Dan Staley. Starring are: Bridgit Mendler as Teddy Duncan, Jason Dolley as PJ Duncan, Leigh-Allyn Baker as Amy Duncan, Bradley Steven Perry as Gabe Duncan, Mia Talerico as Charlie Duncan and Eric Allan Kramer as Bob Duncan. The current storyline recently introduced Baby Toby Duncan (casting will soon begin for the role).

In season four, Toby grows into a toddler and Charlie embarks on new play dates, while the entire Duncan household gets busier and is filled with entertaining milestones and daily amusements. Amy's role as a full-time mommy blogger propels her to celebrity status; Bob has a career mid-life crisis and begins contemplating his next move; PJ develops a passion for the culinary arts; Gabe forms a special friendship with a girl; and, with college fast approaching, Teddy and Spencer evaluate their relationship.

Disney Channel is a 24-hour kid-driven, family inclusive television network that taps into the world of kids and families through original series and movies. Currently available on basic cable in over 99 million U.S. homes and to millions of other viewers on Disney Channels around the world, Disney Channel is part of the Disney/ABC Television Group.
