Disney XD has renewed its top-rated original series Kickin’ It for a second season. Since its June 2011 premiere, the martial arts-themed sitcom accounts for the network’s top three live-action telecasts in kids 6-14, kids 6-11 and tweens 9-14. In addition, the July 25 episode ranked as Disney XD’s No. 1 live-action telecast ever in the boys demos. Production on Season 2 will start in December for a 2012 premiere. Kickin’ It, which follows a crew of lovable misfits determined to beat the odds at the Bobby Wasabi Martial Arts Academy, is created and executive produced by sitcom veteran Jim O’Doherty.
