-- Hayley Hasselhoff, Karan Brar and Mike "The Miz" Mizanin
Among Upcoming Season Three Guest Stars --
The adventure continues on the quirky island of Kinkow as the third season of the royal hit comedy series "Pair of Kings" premieres on MONDAY, JUNE 18 (8:30-9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD. The new season introduces popular actor Adam Hicks (Disney XD's "Zeke and Luther," Disney Channel's "Lemonade Mouth") as a new cast member playing the role of Boomer's long, lost triplet brother, Boz and also includes notable guest appearances by Hayley Hasselhoff ("Huge"), Karan Brar ("Jessie") and Mike "The Miz" Mizanin ("WWF Raw," "WWE Smackdown!"), among others.
In the season three premiere, "The New King Part One: Destiny's Child," Boomer tries to follow Brady when he learns that he has left the island for good, but a storm forces him to stay behind. That same storm sinks a nearby island, sending its inhabitants to Kinkow, including their king who turns out to be Boomer's long, lost triplet brother, Boz.
Season three will follow Boomer and Boz as they get to know one another and learn to work together through hilarious and sometimes perilous adventures that include adopting the ten "bro-mandments," finding a baby near the Dark Side, dubbing Lanny king of his very own island called Lanada, a summer vacation cruise that goes awry, and much more.
Beginning Friday, June 8, DisneyXD.com will launch a new "Pair of Kings" game called "Pyramid of Puzzles," where players control both Boomer and Boz as they traverse a number of levels in a giant pyramid maze in order to rescue Mason. Players will need to slide blocks, trigger traps, zap enemies with magic scepters, and use their kingly brain powers to get through each level.
