“We’re backkkk!!! Had the time of my life filming Life with Luca. I can’t wait for you all to see what Derek & Casey have been up to in the last 15 years.,” Ashley captioned a set of photos from set. Check ‘em all out below!

According to WildBrain Television, who owns Family Channel, the 90-minute spinoff recently wrapped filming in Southern Ontario, Canada, and will premiere on Family Channel in February 2023.

The upcoming movie picks up fifteen years later and follows Derek (Seater) and Casey (Leggat) as they each navigate parenthood and raise distinctly different teenagers. Derek is a successful musician in Paris and the single dad of a 14-year-old girl named Skyler (Isabel Rose Silva) who is smart, funny, and studious and who has recently been testing the boundaries set by her father. Casey is a lawyer and a married mother of three in Toronto and is quite comfortable setting limits, though her eldest, 14-year-old Luca (Marcus Cornwall)—lover of pranks, gaming, and skateboarding—is constantly crossing them.

Both Derek and Casey spontaneously decide to surprise their own parents at their recently constructed ‘forever home’ in rural Ontario but encounter each other instead. Casey and Derek are happy to see each other, but the teenaged cousins—who have barely seen each other over the years (and never really liked what they saw)—don’t get along at all, uniting only to get into serious trouble.

Joy Tanner and John Ralston are also returning as Casey’s mom Nora and Derek’s dad George.
