“Andi Mack” was created by Minsky who also created “Lizzie McGuire.” The show follows 13-year-old Andi and her friends as they navigate life which includes some big moments like finding out your sister is really your mom, coming to terms with your sexuality and having your first love. The show has been groundbreaking and Joshua Rush talked about the impact of the show saying, “I think ‘Andi Mack’ is so amazing not only because it’s diverse but because it makes diversity normal. Cyrus happens to be Jewish, he happens to be gay, those are just facets of his own personality. I think not only does it show that his story is real and that it’s valid, it shows that all of our stories are valid. So any kid watching can turn on the TV and see ‘Andi Mack’ and see a story that they understand that they can go ‘oh yeah that’s me.'”
Lilan Dowden who plays Bex also talked about how the show resonates with not just children but adults and families. “Andi Mack” will air an hour episode on Friday, February 23 and then the second half of season 2 will return with 12 new episodes in June with the third season set to premiere later this year.
