I think it’s fair to say that The Lodge holds a special place in our (or maybe my!) heart(s). The show quickly became the highest rated debut show on The Disney Channel in four years and has made household names of the cast which includes Sophie Simnett (who you may have also seen recently in the immensely powerful movie Mum’s List), Jade Alleyne, Thomas Doherty, Luke Newton, Jayden Revri, Joshua Sinclair-Evans and Bethan Wright.

Following the announcement late last year that the show would get a second season, Disney have today sent over info on Season 2 which has begun production back at The Lodge in Northern Ireland with all our favourites set to return alongside series newcomer Mia Jenkins who has appeared in both Casualty and Eastenders.

Along with the announcement Disney have furnished us with a couple of first-look photos which sees all the main cast alongside Jenkins which you can see below. It’s the light-hearted fun nature of the show which keeps The North Star alive that fuelled the first series alongside the songs written specifically for the show. 11 new songs have been written for season 2 which will feature 15 x 22 minutes episodes.

If you’re unfamiliar with the show. fear not as we have this handy video that we made when we visited the set last year. It features interviews with all the main members of the cast and gives you an inside look into The Lodge.

David Levine, Vice President, Programming said: It’s been great to see our audience embracing The Lodge, both on-air where it became the best-rated series debut in four years in the UK, and online, where videos from the series have attracted over fourteen million views to date.’
