Disney XD has recently ordered a new batch of episodes of the hit animated comedy series Penn Zero: Part Time Hero, ensuring its return for its second season. The show was created and executive produced by Jared Bush and Sam Levine, and focuses on the titular boy, who unexpectedly inherits the job of being a part-time hero from his parents.

Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley) stars as Penn alongside Adam DeVine (Pitch Perfect 2) as Boone, Tania Gunadi (Enlisted) as Sashi, Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2) as Rippen and Larry Wilmore (The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore) as Larry. Recurring are Lea Thompson (Back to the Future) as Penn’s mom, Vonnie; Gary Cole (Veep) as Penn’s dad, Brock; Rosie Perez (The View) as Penn’s Aunt Rose; and Lenny Venito (The Neighbors) as Penn’s Uncle Chuck.
