We all will be sleeping a lot easier tonight, after the Disney Channel ended our suspense and announced that it was going ahead with the third season of A.N.T. Farm, with filming beginning in Los Angeles this December for a June 2013 premiere.
Chyna (not that one) Parks, Olive Doyle, Fletcher Quimby and Lexi Reed have been accepted into the prestigious A.N.T. (Advanced Natural Talents) boarding school. Unfortunately, writer Josh Raymond steps on A.N.T., as he hates ants, and we, the viewing public, are all happy. The end. But I digress.
"A.N.T. Farm is a series that was initially inspired by our audience's love for stories about uniquely talented kids," said Adam Bonnett, senior vice president, original programming at Disney Channels Worldwide. "Our new direction for season three allows us more opportunities to showcase the A.N.T.s, their unique talents and the dedication it takes to follow your dreams."
The series was created and is executive produced by Dan Signer (The Suite Life on Deck). Stephen Engel (The Big Bang Theory) also executive produces. China Anne McClain, Sierra McCormick, Jake Short and Stefanie Scott co-star. I have not heard of any of those people, but it is Disney. Give them a few years and we will be watching them as their lives fall apart once they are adults.
A.N.T. Farm began in June 2011 and is the top show in its time period in several kids’ demographics on Disney.
