Season Two of Amazon Original Kids Series "Just Add Magic" Debuts on January 13 on Prime Video

Based on Cindy Callaghan's book of the same name, Just Add Magic stars Olivia Sanabia, Abby Donnelly, Aubrey Miller and Judah Bellamy, and is executive produced by Andrew Orenstein and Joe Nussbaum

SEATTLE - December 19, 2016 - (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon today announced season two of its original live-action kids series aimed at families and children aged 6 through 11, Just Add Magic, is scheduled to premiere on Friday, January 13 on Prime Video in the US and UK. 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) with Nussbaum also directing several episodes. Starring Olivia Sanabia (Extant), Abby Donnelly (Suburgatory), Aubrey Miller (Austin & Ally), and Judah Bellamy (Home), season two continues with Kelly (Sanabia) and her two best friends Darbie (Donnelly) and Hannah (Miller) as they work together to unravel the mystery surrounding the reappearance of an old enemy threatening to steal the girls' magical cookbook. The first season of Just Add Magic, the most streamed kids 6-11 Amazon Original Series to date, is now available to stream exclusively for Prime members via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online - Prime members can also download the series to mobile devices for offline viewing at no additional cost to their membership.

In season two, the girls' Last-Ditch Layer Cake breaks every spell in town which miraculously brings Grandma Quinn (Dee Wallace, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial) back to her normal self, however it also brings back an old enemy... Chuck Hankins. Chuck disappeared when he was a teenager, but when he returns 50 years later, he hasn't aged a day. When Chuck begins to meddle with the girls' lives, they must put aside their summer of fun in order to save the magic from falling into the wrong hands. As the girls begin to investigate, they learn that Chuck isn't just an ordinary troublemaker. In fact, he's capable of much more than they could ever imagine. Chuck is creating his own magic cookbook and may be seeking revenge on the people who spelled him years ago. His master plan will eventually put one of the trio in grave danger unless Kelly, Hannah and Darbie can find a way to defeat Chuck once and for all.

"Kids and families have embraced Kelly, Darbie and Hannah and we're excited to debut another season next month," said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. "There's more suspense and magic in the new season as the girls' mastery of magic will be called upon to protect their bond. The first season led our customers to extend beyond the show with family cooking time and hope the new season will continue that tradition."

Just Add Magic also stars Catia Ojeda (Grey's Anatomy) as Mrs. Quinn, Andrew Burlinson (Parks and Recreation) as Mr. Quinn, Amy Hill (50 First Dates) as Mama P, and Ellen Karsten (Camp Takota) as Ms. Silvers. Luisa Leschin (Austin & Ally) serves as co-executive producer, Matt Goldman (Wizards of Waverly Place) serves as consulting producer and Pixie Wespiser (Good Luck Charlie) serves as producer.

Customers can watch the first season and recently released Just Add Magic Halloween special, rated 4.8 stars, today, before the second season debuts on January 13. Below are what customers have said about the first season:

· "I love that they show smart, compassionate girls and that the friendship among the girls is so strong."
