The popular summer camp comedy series Bunk’d has been renewed by Disney Channel for Season 5. The series is Disney Channel’s number 1 show for kids and girls ages 6-11.
Bunk’d began as a spinoff to Disney Channel’s hit series Jessie (2011-15) and follows the adventures at Maine’s rustic Camp Kikiwaka. The show was created by Pamela Eells O’Connell.
Additionally, Erin Dunlap (“Andi Mack,” “Jessie”), who joined the series as executive producer in season four, will return as sole showrunner for season five.
Kory Lunsford, vice president, Current Series, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, “‘BUNK’D’ has long been a strong ratings driver for Disney Channel, with funny, relatable characters and storylines that continue to resonate with kids everywhere. We’re very excited to embark on a fifth season with Erin and the talented young cast as they head off for another summer at Camp Kikiwaka. We also look forward to continuing our relationship with Phil, who brought us the blockbuster series ‘Good Luck, Charlie,’ as he works on developing new and exciting projects.”
Returning series regulars include Miranda May as cheerful camp owner Lou; Mallory James Mahoney (Disney Channel’s “Adventures in Babysitting”), Raphael Alejandro (ABC’s “Once Upon a Time”) and Will Buie Jr. (“Gifted”) as the loveable but mischievous campers; Shelby Simmons (“Andi Mack”) and Israel Johnson (“Schooled”) as their quirky but well-intentioned counselors.
Production will begin in fall 2020.
