From a media release:
MR. YOUNG GRADUATES TO SEASON 2
- YTVâ€™s latest hit series will start production on new episodes this summer
Corus Entertainmentâ€™s YTV announced today that Mr. Young has been picked up for another season. Thunderbird Films will commence production of 26 new episodes in July, bringing the total number of episodes to 52. The live-action series premiered on March 1st and has quickly become one of the networkâ€™s top rated series.
Filmed in front of a live studio audience in Vancouver, Mr. Young stars Brendan Meyer as Adam Young, a whiz-kid-turned-teen genius who hit the books hard enough to get into university at the age of 9. Now, at the tender age of 14, heâ€™s headed back to high school â€“ as a teacher. Being the same age as his students, Adam finds himself trapped between two worlds â€“ coping with his co-workers, who happen to be twice his age, while teaching his best friend, the girl he has a crush on, and the class bully. With one foot in the lunch room and the other foot in the staff room, itâ€™s Mr. Youngâ€™s social life thatâ€™s being put to the test.
Mr. Young airs on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT on YTV.
