Callaghan’s book
of the same name, Just Add Magic is a single-camera live-action
series executive produced by Andrew
Orenstein
(Malcolm in the Middle) and Joe
Nussbaum
(George Lucas in Love, Awkward) with Nussbaum also
directing several episodes. Starring Olivia
Sanabia
(Extant), Abby
Donnelly
(Suburgatory), Aubrey
Miller
(Austin & Ally), and Judah
Bellamy
(Home), season two continues with Kelly (Sanabia) and
her two best friends Darbie (Donnelly) and Hannah (Miller) as they work
together to unravel the mystery surrounding the reappearance of an old
enemy threatening to steal the girls’ magical cookbook. The first season
of Just Add Magic, the most streamed kids 6-11 Amazon Original
Series to date, is now available to stream exclusively for Prime members
via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire
TV, mobile devices and online—Prime members can also download the series

In season two, the girls’ Last-Ditch Layer Cake breaks every spell in
town which miraculously brings Grandma Quinn (Dee
Wallace
, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial) back to her normal self,
however it also brings back an old enemy…Chuck Hankins. Chuck
disappeared when he was a teenager, but when he returns 50 years later,
he hasn’t aged a day. When Chuck begins to meddle with the girls’ lives,
they must put aside their summer of fun in order to save the magic from
falling into the wrong hands. As the girls begin to investigate, they
learn that Chuck isn’t just an ordinary troublemaker. In fact, he’s
capable of much more than they could ever imagine. Chuck is creating his
own magic cookbook and may be seeking revenge on the people who spelled
him years ago. His master plan will eventually put one of the trio in
grave danger unless Kelly, Hannah and Darbie can find a way to defeat
Chuck once and for all.

“Kids and families have embraced Kelly, Darbie and Hannah and we’re
excited to debut another season next month,” said Tara Sorensen, Head of
Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. “There’s more suspense and magic in
the new season as the girls’ mastery of magic will be called upon to
protect their bond. The first season led our customers to extend beyond
the show with family cooking time and hope the new season will continue
that tradition.”

Ojeda
(Grey’s Anatomy) as Mrs. Quinn, Andrew
Burlinson
(Parks and Recreation) as Mr. Quinn, Amy
