Disney XD has ordered a second season of its top-rated original series KICKIN’ IT, which is the cabler’s new martial-arts-themed sitcom that stars former Hannah Montana star Jason Earles and world class marital artist Leo Howard.

The comedy follows a group of underdogs from the Bobby Wasabi Martial Arts Academy who meet hotshot skater Jack (Howard) when he saves their lunch during a cafeteria food fight with his black belt skills. When he literally flies through the wall of the dojo in a perfect martial arts stance, the gang know they have found the one person who can restore glory to their struggling dojo. Jack reluctantly joins and teaches his new crew about confidence, karate and how to just plain kick it. This ragtag crew soon realizes their newfound friendship will take them places they never quite imagined, and that united, they can become unstoppable. Earles plays their Sensei Rudy. The rest of the cast includes Mateo Arias, Dylan Riley Snyder, Olivia Holt and Alex Christian Jones.

Kickin’ It has become a hit with kids between the ages of 6 to 14 and is the network’s number 1 ive-action series with boys and was created and is executive-produced by veteran producer Jim O’Doherty (Grounded for Life and 3rd Rock from the Sun).

The second season of Kickin’ It is set for a 2012 premiere on Disney XD.
