Bunk'd

Emma, Ravi, and Zuri Ross have left their New York penthouse for summer camp at Maine's rustic Camp Kikiwaka, in Disney Channel's new live-action comedy series Bunk'd, a spin-off of the hit comedy series Jessie, debuting Friday, July 31 on Disney Channel. The series premieres immediately following the highly anticipated Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants at 8:00pm, ET/PT. The spin-off follows siblings Emma, Ravi and Zuri Ross as they embark on their summer at Camp Kikiwaka, a rustic summer camp in Maine where their parents met as teenagers. Emma and Ravi step into new roles as CITs (Counselor In Training), learning how to be resourceful, responsible role models to their campers. Lou, the cheerful head counselor, and Xander, the camp heartthrob, befriend the Ross kids, who are complete fish out of water in the great outdoors, and step in to show them the ropes. Zuri makes new friends with her fellow campers, the anxious and overly studious Tiffany and compulsive fibber Jorge. Along with their new friends, Emma, Ravi and Zuri adapt to their new "home away from home" and settle into their exciting new lives at Camp Kikiwaka.

Reprising their starring roles from Jessie are Peyton List as Emma, Karan Brar as Ravi and Skai Jackson as Zuri. Joining the cast are Miranda May (The Heartbreak Kid, Samantha Who?) as Lou, Kevin Quinn (Shameless, Chicago P.D.) as Xander, and newcomers Nina Lu as Tiffany and Nathan Arenas as Jorge. In the premiere episode, the Ross kids arrive at camp. The camp's owner, Gladys (played by Mary Scheer), is even scarier than the legendary creature that's rumored to stalk the grounds. With the help of her sneaky niece Hazel, she's out to get the Ross kids because of her decades-old rivalry with their mom. The Bunk'd premiere episode simulcast will be available to verified users on WATCHDisneyChannel.com and the WATCH Disney Channel app for smartphones and tablets.
