Disney Channel has announced that season two of Andi Mack will feature the first Disney Channel character to come out.
“Andi Mack is a story about tweens figuring out who they are,” said Disney Channel in a statement. “(Creator) Terri Minsky, the cast and everyone involved in the show takes great care in ensuring that it’s appropriate for all audiences and sends a powerful message about inclusion and respect for humanity.”
The storyline will focus on Cyrus coming to realize that he, too, has feelings for Jonah that extend beyond friendship. Not only will Cyrus have to deal with the confusion and emotional complexities that come with being a gay teenager, not only will he have to wrestle with how to tell new girlfriend Iris about himself, he’ll have to keep Andi from finding out about his feelings for Jonah, as she’ll spend season two hashing out her own complicated feelings for her longtime crush.
