Overview

On May 18th, 2018, the series was renewed for season 2 ahead of it's season 1 premiere. [2]

This season features a musical Christmas special and a CGI-themed episode ("Green Christmas" and "Level Up" respectively).

A few characters who appeared in the previous season appear in this season, including new characters like Gwendolyn Zapp.[3]

Season 2 is also the first to feature a broad mini-arc, in which the Greens help Chip get the position of CEO of Wholesome Foods and take over for his retiring father. However, they soon realize he tricked them into accepting his apology that he's sorry for their actions so that he can run them out of town with all the power he has, and they must defeat him once and for all.

Like the first season, the second comprises of 30 half-hours.

History

Production on Season 2 began on August 1st.

According to Shane Houghton, this season will have additional 30 half hour episodes similar to the first season[4], bringing over 60 episodes from both of the series' seasons, while 120 11 minute segments in total.

On April 26th, the show was featured during the Fan Fest 2019, with the creators showing storyboard animations of upcoming episodes, including a beach-themed episode ("Shark Objects"), which was mentioned to premiere sometime in the fall of 2019.

The voice actor, Marieve Herington, was interviewing and mentioned that season 2 will get more "wackier and wackier", plus mentioned that Tilly and Bill will create a video, similar to that of YouTube ("Bad Influencer"), and also have a night talk show. (would be Miss Tilly's Fun Time TV Minute) [5]

On August 24th, during D23 2019, Shane added that this season will feature a musical Christmas special, containing 6 songs associated with the theme. This episode would turn out to be "Green Christmas".

Season 2 will feature more of the same as the first season, whilst adding new guest stars, more shorts, promo, and newer content. [6]

Guest stars for season two include NBA All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns, Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2), Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Jonathan Van Ness (Queer Eye), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), Jameela Jamil (The Good Place), Lucy Lawless (Xena the Warrior Princess), Jim O'Heir (Parks and Recreation), Ed Begley Jr. (Arrested Development), Cheri Oteri (Saturday Night Live), Candace Kozak (Disney Channel's Just Roll With It), Jason Maybaum (Disney Channel's Raven's Home) and YouTube sensation SungWon Cho. The second season includes a holiday musical featuring seven original songs and a video game-themed episode with CG animation.

Halfway into production, the cast went on hiatus for four months, mainly due to the coronavirus (colloquially COVID-19) pandemic, forcing most of the staff to work on the production restrictively at home. The voice actors recorded all their dialogue from their bedroom closets.

The season finished production on July 8, 2020.[7]

Shorts

In addition, "Broken Karaoke," a new animated short-form series that spotlights favorite Disney Channel characters singing parodies of popular songs, launched on Disney Channel YouTube with the first short, "Queen of Nice," featuring Tilly Green singing a parody of viral sensation "Queen of Mean" from the global hit Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants 3.

In addition, new "Random Rings" shorts, featuring Cricket and Tilly Green calling unsuspecting real-world people, continued to premiere every Sunday through Oct. 27 on Disney Channel and Disney Channel YouTube.[8]
