Stars Sloane Morgan Siegel, Caitlin Carmichael and Joel McCrary All Set to Return
PASADENA, Calif., Feb. 13, 2019 -- BYUtv, a family entertainment network available over cable, satellite and streaming, announced today at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour that it has greenlit season two of its original scripted adventure comedy series, "Dwight In Shining Armor." The second season will premiere fall 2019. Cast members Sloane Morgan Siegel (Dwight), Caitlin Carmichael (Gretta) and Joel McCrary (Baldric) will all be back for season two. Previously announced, season one will premiere on Monday, March 18, 2019 at 9:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. MT/6:30 p.m. PT.
"We are so pleased with what we have seen of the first season and are confident it will resonate with the families who watch it," said Michael Dunn, managing director of BYUtv. "It is without hesitation that we greenlight a second season of 'Dwight in Shining Armor,' and we look forward to revealing the new adventures in store for these characters. We believe this show will bring new audiences to our network and demonstrate well the direction of our original programming."
The 30-minute series takes place in a suburban town where Dwight, a 21st century teen, falls into an ancient, underground chamber and lands lip-to-lip with Gretta, a gothic princess who has been magically sleeping for a thousand years. Dwight's "kiss" awakens Gretta, her court magician, Baldric, as well as scores of medieval villains, and makes Dwight her de facto champion until her hordes of enemies are defeated.
Sloane Morgan Siegel (Amazon Studio's "Gortimer Gibbon's Life on Normal Street"), Caitlin Carmichael ("The Good Doctor") and Joel McCrary ("The Princess Diaries 1 & 2") star in this new series created by LeeAnne H. Adams & Brian J. Adams (Amazon Studio's "12 Princesses"). Co-starring are Danielle Bisutti ("Mom") and Evan Hofer ("Lethal Weapon'). Production for the first season has wrapped.
