Canadian kidsnet YTV and Vancouver-based Thunderbird Films have greenlit a 13-episode third season of their top-rated live-action teen comedy, Some Assembly Required.

The new season of the series is currently in production in Burnaby, British Columbia, and new eps shot in front of a live studio audience are expected to premiere in 2016.

Created by Canadian showrunner Dan Signer (Mr. Young, A.N.T. Farm) and Howard Nemetz (Mr. Young, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody), Some Assembly Required follows the story of Jarvis Raines (Kolton Stewart), an ordinary teenager who suddenly becomes head of the Knickknack toy company after suing it over a faulty chemistry set that blew up his house.

To help run the new venture, Raines relies on a group of his high school friends. Season three will see the introduction of  Adelaide, the newly adopted daughter of Knickknack Toy’s former owner Candace Wheeler (Ellie Harvie).

Some Assembly Required season two currently airs Mondays on YTV.

The program was recently acquired by Netflix for streaming this year in all territories except for Canada, where it will debut next year.
