Diary of a Future President Season 2 Coming to Disney+

-

Disney+ announced today that Diary of a Future President Season 2 has been given the green light. From CBS Television Studios and I Can and I Will Productions, the popular scripted series is executive produced by Gina Rodriguez along with creator Ilana Peña (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Keith Heisler and Molly Breeskin. Peña and Heisler are co-showrunners.

Diary of a Future President follows the adventures of Elena Cañero-Reed as she navigates the ups and downs of middle school on her journey to become the future president of the United States.

Diary of a Future President features Tess Romero (Blind Spot, Alternatino) as young Elena, an unabashed, ultra-observant 12-year-old with a strong point of view, who walks through the world with purpose and confidence.

Charlie Bushnell, who makes his acting debut in the series, plays Bobby, Elena’s sweet and mischievous older brother. Selenis Leyva (Orange Is the New Black, Murphy Brown, Maniac) stars as Gabi, Elena and Bobby’s sharp and loving mom. Michael Weaver (Here and Now, The Real O’Neals, Notes from the Underbelly) plays Sam, a lawyer at Gabi’s firm who is in the beginnings of a relationship with her.

Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) will return as adult Elena, the future president of the United States, in a recurring guest starring role.

“Optimistic, heartfelt stories that inspire are fundamental to our content and creator Ilana Peña’s series delivers on these attributes in spades,” says Agnes Chu, senior vice president, Content, Disney+.

She added: “Families around the world have fallen in love with Elena and the Cañero-Reed family and we are thrilled to bring Elena’s often hilarious and always meaningful journey through adolescence back for another season. It has been wonderful to partner with the extraordinary Gina Rodriguez to champion specific, diverse points-of-view and we look forward to seeing even more of President Cañero-Reed in this next chapter.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with Disney+ on a series that showcases strong women both in front of, and behind the camera. They’ve been incredible champions of the show from day one,” said David Stapf, president, CBS Television Studios.

“Gina’s ability to shepherd projects with new and diverse voices, combined with Ilana’s effortless blend of comedy and drama with humor and sensitivity bring this wonderful coming-of-age story to life.”

Diary of a Future President Season 2 will consist of 10 episodes and will stream exclusively on Disney+. The first season debuted on the streaming service on Friday, January 17.
