Amazon Greenlights Second Season of Amazon Original Kids Series "Just Add Magic"

Amazon today announced it has renewed a second season of its original live-action kids series aimed at children aged 6 through 11, Just Add Magic. The series will return exclusively to Prime Video for members to stream at no additional cost to their Prime membership. Just Add Magic set a record as the most successful Amazon Original Kids premiere weekend in terms of US Prime Video streams and hours.

Based on Cindy Callaghan's book of the same name, Just Add Magic is a single-camera live-action series executive produced by Andrew Orenstein (Malcolm in the Middle) and Joe Nussbaum (George Lucas in Love, Awkward). Starring Olivia Sanabia (Extant), Abby Donnelly (Suburgatory), Aubrey Miller (Austin & Ally), and Judah Bellamy (Home), the series follows Kelly (Sanabia) and her two best friends Darbie (Donnelly) and Hannah (Miller) as they stumble upon a mysterious cookbook in Kelly's attic and discover the recipes in this book are far from ordinary - they're magical.

In season one of Just Add Magic, currently available on Prime Video, when it's revealed that this ancient cookbook may not have shown up by accident, Kelly and her friends attempt to use the recipes to release Kelly's grandmother from a powerful curse, and soon realize that every recipe they make comes with a hefty price. As they work together to uncover more clues around Grandma's mystery, they learn that they can't always cook their way out of every problem. The season finds the trio unraveling the mystery in how to save Kelly's grandmother, but along the way they serve up magical dishes that are more than just sweet confections: a Lost and Found-ue spell to bring the neighbors' dog back, a Bitter Truth Truffle that makes Kelly's mother become excessively honest and Mind Peering Peppermints to learn more about who cursed Grandma.

Just Add Magic also stars Dee Wallace (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial) as Grandma, Amy Hill (50 First Dates) as Mama P, Catia Ojeda (Grey's Anatomy) as Mrs. Quinn and Andrew Burlinson (Parks and Recreation) as Mr. Quinn. Guest stars include Brady Reiter (100 Things to Do Before High School) as Charlotte, Matt Knudsen (The League) as Coach Richards, Aiden Lovekamp (Scandal) as Buddy, and Ellen Karsten (Camp Takota) as Ms. Silvers. Pixie Wespiser (Good Luck Charlie) serves as Producer.

Prime members can now stream the first season of Just Add Magic at no additional cost to their Prime membership with the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices and mobile devices, or online. Prime members can also download the series for offline viewing on iOS, Android and Fire devices at no additional cost. In addition to SD and HD, the series is also available in 4K Ultra HD on compatible smart TVs from Samsung, LG and Sony. Customers who are not already Prime members can sign up for a free 30-day trial at amazon.com/prime.
