Disney EMEA renews The Evermoor Chronicles

The sophomore season will look to build upon the success of the Disney EMEA show and original mini-series.
April 6, 2016

Disney EMEA has commissioned a second season of live-action series The Evermoor Chronicles.

Produced by Lime Pictures in Warrington, England, the second season (12 x 22 minutes) will see the return of Georgia Lock (Sadie J, Friday Download), Georgie Farmer (The Ministry of Curious Stuff) and cast members Sammy Moore, Finney Cassidy, Alex Starke, Clive Rowe, Margaret Cabourn-Smith and India Ria Amarteifio.

Filming will begin this summer, and the new season is slated to air later this year on multiple Disney Channels worldwide.

Co-created by Diane Whitley and  Tim Compton (both of House of Anubis), The Evermoor Chronicles’ second series sees Compton return to the helm alongside writer and executive producer Bede Blake (House of Anubis, Strange Hill High) and executive producer Rebecca Hodgson (Good Cop, Stolen).

The commission follows recognition at the International Emmy Awards, where Evermoor, the mini-series from which The Evermoor Chronicles originated, was nominated in the Best TV Movie/Mini-Series category.

The hit original mini-series attracted 5.3 million viewers in its first quarter on-air across 10 EMEA markets.

The success of Disney EMEA shows like The Evermore Chronicles and Violetta has provided a platform for the launch of new series like The Lodge, which is currently filming in Northern Ireland.

Grainne Rowe, who was recently upped to head of live-action development at Disney EMEA, has said that finding more genre-driven series like the aforementioned titles remains a priority.
