Andi Mack's Joshua Rush & Peyton Elizabeth Lee Talk About Acceptance Theme in Season 2

Andi Mack came out strong with their second season premiere last week with a powerful storyline where Cyrus realizes his feelings for Jonah on the Disney Channel program.

It’s a storyline that creator Terri Minsky worked on with child development experts and screened for organizations such as GLAAD and PFLAG.

“I know there are a lot of kids out there who think that they’re weird and different,” she shared in a new featurette. “I guess I kind of wanted Buffy to say it to all of them, and I wanted it to feel like acceptance.”

Joshua Rush adds that he “hopes people, out of Cyrus’s storyline, get this feeling like you can be who are, and if there’s something you’re thinking about, you should talk about it.”

Peyton Elizabeth Lee is more than proud about storyline, saying that she loves that the show can create conversation between families.

“I hope it gives kids the confidence to be proud of who they are and just be happy with themselves,” she shared. “All of the stories in Andi Mack, particularly Cyrus’ story, give this amazing opportunity to open conversation between parents and kids, or between friends.”

Disney Channel's 'Andi Mack' Banned in Kenya Following Gay Storyline

Andi Mack‘s brand new season premiered just last week with a storyline that sees Cyrus realize his feelings for Jonah.

While many fans welcomed the inclusive storyline, the country of Kenya did not.

Variety reports that the Kenya Film Classification Board’s chief executive Ezekial Mutua issued a statement earlier this week that the show would not be allowed to air in Kenya and “any attempt to introduce gay programming in Kenya will be met with the full force of the law.”

The statement goes on to say that “homosexuality goes against the collective and values of the people of Kenya.”

Mutua said in a Facebook post that the board “has a duty to protect children from exposure to harmful film and [broadcast] content,” adding “Gay Content Will Not Air in Kenya…PERIOD!”

Kenya has also banned seven cartoons programs from the airwaves because of what Mutua described as “retrogressive and bizarre messages intended to promote the [LGBT] agenda.”

Andi Mack airs Fridays on Disney Channel.

Andi Mack's Asher Angel Teases How Jonah Has Grown in Season 2

Andi Mack is officially back and Asher Angel is teasing just what Jonah Beck is up to in season two.

“During season one, he was kind of oblivious I would say,” he recently shared in a new interview. “He didn’t really know what was going on around him, and I think now [in season 2] he actually knows that he can hurt someone.”

Asher adds that two seasons in, he’s still loving playing Jonah.

“He’s a popular, charming guy,” Asher says. “Pretty thoughtful, sensitive and people really love him and the energy that he brings to the table. And that’s kind of like me, I’m totally energetic all the time. He’s just a blast to play.”
