Mateo Arias will be kickin’ it on Disney XD for another season…
The network has renewed its highest-rated series Kickin’ It, which stars the 17-year-old Colombian American actor, for a fourth-season.
Production on the martial arts-inspired series set to resume in Los Angeles this November for a 2014 premiere.
“Kickin’ It continues to pack a punch with relatable storytelling, aspirational characters and non-stop action,” said Disney Channel’s Worldwide EVP Original Programming Adam Bonnett.
Along with Arias, Season 4 will see the return of the show’s fellow stars Jason Earles, Leo Howard and Dylan Riley Snyder; Olivia Holt, who starred in the first three seasons, is leaving to star in the Disney Channel comedy series I Didn’t Do It premiering in 2014.
Season 3 of Kickin’ It is the boys-targeted network’s No. 1 series in total viewers and the key demos, with the current run outperforming Season 2 in all metrics by double-digits.
The series, which airs Mondays, was created by Jim O’Doherty.
