Disney Channel has renewed Good Luck Charlie for a third season, which will premiere in early 2012.
Good Luck Charlie ranks No. 1 in its time period, and in July, delivered its second-highest rated telecast ever in the 6-11 and 9-14 demos; 21% of its viewership also falls into the coveted 18-49 demo.
Good Luck Charlie has also inspired an original telepic, Good Luck Charlie, It's Christmas!, which is set to premiere in December. Along with the show's main cast, the movie will feature guest stars Debra Monk (Damages, Grey's Anatomy) and Michael Kagan (Desperate Housewives).
The series stars Bridgit Mendler, Jason Dolley, Leigh-Allyn Baker, Bradley Steven Perry, Mia Talerico and Eric Allan Kramer.
