The kids series will return for a second season next month.
Amazon has announced a release date for 'Just Add Magic' season two. New episodes of the original kids show will start streaming on Prime Video in the US and
"Kids and families have embraced Kelly, Darbie and Hannah and we're excited to debut another season next month," said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. "There's more suspense and magic in the new season as the girls' mastery of magic will be called upon to protect their bond. The first season led our customers to extend beyond the show with family cooking time and hope the new season will continue that tradition."
In season two, the girls' Last-Ditch Layer Cake breaks every spell in town which miraculously brings Grandma Quinn (Dee Wallace, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial) back to her normal self, however it also brings back an old enemy…Chuck Hankins. Chuck disappeared when he was a teenager, but when he returns 50 years later, he hasn't aged a day. When Chuck begins to meddle with the girls' lives, they must put aside their summer of fun in order to save the magic from falling into the wrong hands. As the girls begin to investigate, they learn that Chuck isn't just an ordinary troublemaker. In fact, he's capable of much more than they could ever imagine. Chuck is creating his own magic cookbook and may be seeking revenge on the people who spelled him years ago. His master plan will eventually put one of the trio in grave danger unless Kelly, Hannah and Darbie can find a way to defeat Chuck once and for all.
