"Teen Beach 2" is the highly anticipated surf and song sequel to "Teen Beach Movie," the Disney Channel Original Movie that ranks as the second highest-rated cable television movie of all time. The television premiere of "Teen Beach 2," sponsored by Best Western International, Famous Footwear and BAND-AID Brand, is FRIDAY, JUNE 26 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel U.S. followed by telecasts on Disney Channels around the world. It will be available one week earlier, Friday, June 19, to verified users on the WATCH Disney Channel app and WATCHDisneyChannel.com.

"Teen Beach 2" will usher in Disney Channel's new comedy series "Best Friends Whenever," premiering immediately following the movie. Also, "Teen Beach 2" stars make guest appearances on hit series presented throughout the day.

A fantastical music- and dance-driven story designed for kids, tweens and families, "Teen Beach 2" picks up at the close of summer. With surf season over and high school back in session, laid-back Brady and studious Mack's relationship is headed for a wipeout when they receive a surprise real-world visit from their 1960s silver screen friends, Lela and Tanner, who have remarkably departed "Wet Side Story," quickly followed by their 1960s bikers and surfer friends led by Butchy, Cheechee and Seacat. Knowing first-hand that the "real" world and the movie world don't mix, Mack, Brady and all of the "Wet Side Story" friends must quickly devise a plan and use the magic of Lela's necklace to get everyone back to their movie world before it's too late.

THE HANDS OF TIME TWIST AND TURN FOR TEEN BESTIES IN NEW LIVE-ACTION COMEDY "BEST FRIENDS WHENEVER" PREMIERING FRIDAY, JUNE 26 ON DISNEY CHANNEL

When a science experiment goes awry, teen best friends Shelby and Cyd gain the power to travel back and forth in time, although they can't quite control their powers just yet, in the new sitcom "Best Friends Whenever," debuting FRIDAY, JUNE 26 on Disney Channel.

The series follows Shelby (Taylor) and Cyd (Bender), who gain the power to leap forward and backward in time whenever they want - and sometimes when they don't.

While aspiring scientist Barry and his trusty assistant, Naldo, try to figure out how to replicate time travel for themselves, Cyd and Shelby use their newfound power to navigate high school, life and Shelby's mischievous twin brothers, Bret and Chet.

Also starring are Gus Kamp ("Deadtime Stories") as Barry, Ricky Garcia ("Forever In Your Mind") as Naldo, and identical twins Benjamin Cole and Matthew Lewis Royer as Bret and Chet.
