The show took the opportunity to preview its final two episodes of season one and announce that the series has been picked up for a second season.

Onstage at SDCC to deliver the good news to fans in Ballroom 20 were cast members Olivia Holt, Aubrey Joseph, Emma Lahana and Ally Maki, along with executive producers Joe Pokaski and Jeph Loeb. The panel also included a special sneak peek at the upcoming two episodes including the finale where everything comes to a head for Tandy and Ty as the city of New Orleans is thrown into chaos.
