Zendaya Returned to Disney Channel Because of the Lack of Diversity

Zendaya Returned to Disney Channel Because of the Lack of Diversity

Earlier this fall, Zendaya wrapped up production on her long running Disney Channel series, K.C. Undercover, and speaking with the NYTimes, we now know why she returned to the network.

“The only reason I wanted to come back to the Disney Channel is because there was a lack of diversity at that time,” the actress reveals in a new interview. “There weren’t any leads or families of color, and I felt like that was something that needed to happen.”

Now, with Andi Mack, Raven’s Home, and Stuck in the Middle, the diversity is there.

However, that’s not the only reason she was back in action at the channel.

“I thought the idea of a girl doing a ‘guy role’ was really important,” Zendaya adds. “Young women are able to look at the screen and see that they can be anything, that they can do it all. A little boy can look up to a girl and say, ‘I want to be like this girl.’ And that’s awesome.”

The final season of K.C. Undercover is expected to debut in 2018.

The 'K.C. Undercover' Cast Celebrates Their Final Table Read

The K.C. Undercover cast had their final table read this week — though whether it marks the end of season 3 or of the show in its entirety is not yet clear.

“Love these peeps! Last table read…. #KCUndercover” Trinitee Stokes, who plays Judy Cooper, wrote on Instagram.

The photo also features her co-stars Veronica Dunne, Zendaya, Tammy Townsend, Kamil McFadden, and Kadeem Hardison.

Zendaya and Veronica have both implied that the show is almost over in interviews.

“I can’t answer that for sure, but if it was [ending], I think it’d just be a great way to end this season, and end this show, because it’s come to a great end and a beautiful family has grown up,” Veronica shared.

THIS HAD BETTER NOT BE THE END! We’re not ready!

Love these peeps! Last table read…. #KCUndercover

'K.C. Undercover' is Tackling Sexism in the Workplace in This Week's Episode

'K.C. Undercover' is Tackling Sexism in the Workplace in This Week's Episode

K.C. Undercover may almost be over, but it definitely isn’t going out with at least a few more important lessons for its young viewers.

In a new interview, Zendaya reveals that the upcoming special episode of K.C. deals with sexism in the workplace.

“It lightly discusses and brings up the issue of sexism in the workplace which is something very common, especially when you’re in the field of work where it’s mostly male dominated,” the 20-year-old actress tells Hollywoodlife.com.

“She realizes that she’s not looked at as an equal or as fair,” Zendaya continues, “So she bands together with one of the female co-workers and shows the power of women! It’s a cool storyline and also shows it in a storyline that’s still understandable and doesn’t go over kids’ heads.”

If we know anything about K.C., it’s that she won’t stand for workplace discrimination, no matter the circumstances.

We can’t wait to watch! Season three of K.C. Undercover airs every Friday at 8:30p.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel.

China Anne McClain is back as enemy agent Sheena in TONIGHT’S new episode of K.C. Undercover!

If you didn’t watch the season three one-hour premiere, we have the ultimate recap for you – including the kick-butt plot twist that had us thinking Ernie’s new bae Zoe (Haley Tju) was an enemy spy working for their arch nemesis Zane (Francois Chau).

That was of course until Zoe burst through the window to reveal she was actually sent from The Organization to help the Coopers escape Zane!

And the real evil spy working for Zane – the wickedly bizarre Sheena played by Descendants 2 star China Anne; even though we LOVE Zendaya‘s superspy K.C., we can’t get enough of the offbeat toughness of Sheena. #GirlPower

And let’s talk about the show stopper — when Marisa (Veronica Dunne) and K.C.’s mom Kira (Tammy Townsend) brought down the house undercover at the Carnival Celebration!!

Can we start the petition for a “K.C. Undercover” musical episode please!! Check out that clip below!

In tonight’s ep, the face-off between Sheena and K.C. picks up, this time in the heart of the jungle when K.C., Marisa and Ernie try to get to their extraction zone for safety.

Zendaya Told Disney Channel To Change the Original Title of 'K.C. Undercover'

Zendaya Told Disney Channel To Change the Original Title of 'K.C. Undercover'

Zendaya knew when she signed on to do Disney Channel’s K.C. Undercover, she had a lot of power.

The 20-year-old actress was fresh off the success of Shake It Up, and wanted to make sure her voice was heard by the network.

“I got in a room with the heads of Disney Channel,” Z told Vogue, explaining that the original title of the show was Super Awesome Katy. “I was like, ‘The title is whack. That’s gonna change.’”

She also wasn’t a fan of her character’s name…

“Do I look like a Katy to you?” she told them. (We love that she sticks up for her beliefs!)

In case you missed it, be sure to check out more highlights from Z‘s amazing Vogue cover story!
