From a media release:
Corus Entertainmentâ€™s YTV is pleased to confirm it has renewed its hit showÂ The Stanley Dynamic, fromÂ Amaze Film + Television with animation by 9 Story Media Group.Â The hybrid live action/animated seriesÂ focuses on the fun-loving Stanleys, a close-knit family with one big twist: their son Luke is an animated cartoon character. Production on the second season ofÂ 26×30 minute episodes begins this summer. The first season ofÂ The Stanley DynamicÂ ranks in the top 5 shows for kids 6 to 11 on YTV.
The first season ofÂ The Stanley DynamicÂ focuses on teenaged twin brothers Larry and Luke entering high school. In the second season, the world of the Stanley family will include even crazier antics from the twins, their sister Loriâ€™s ever expanding insect menagerie, and misadventures with their parents, Lane and Lori. Just when viewers thought they had the Stanleys all figured out, some new additions to the household â€” including pets and extended family members â€” will totally shift the Stanley dynamic. Season 2 of the series is set to premiere in Fall 2016.
The Stanley DynamicÂ brings family viewers together to laugh along with the Stanleys. Cartoon Luke and his flesh-and-blood twin brother, Larry, are navigating high school and trying to fit in. Luke prefers to stay under the radar, but his ability to stretch his body like a wad of gum keeps him in the spotlight, while Larryâ€™s love of attention is constantly getting him into trouble. Luckily, the twins have the support of their cartoonist dad, who chronicles the familyâ€™s adventures in his comic strip, their overworked mom, and their bug-obsessed, genius sister. Despite the fact that Luke is a cartoon, in the eyes of the Stanleys and the world around them, Luke is just a regular kid, living in a three-dimensional world.
The Stanley DynamicÂ wasÂ created by Ken Cuperus, Jocelyn Hamilton, and Jamie Piekarz. Ken Cuperus (Total Drama Action,Â Mr. Young) is executive producer/showrunner with Michael Souther (Call Me Fitz,Â Saint Ralph) and Teza Lawrence (Call Me Fitz, Saint Ralph)Â also serving as executive producers. Alice Prodanou (My Babysitterâ€™s a Vampire,Â The Fresh Beat Band) is co-executive producer and Victoria Hirst (Mr. Young,Â Away From Her) is the Producer.
