I have some exciting news! School of Rock has been renewed for season two! Huge congrats to Jade and the rest of the cast and crew!!

Just weeks after its debut, “School of Rock” has landed a second season at Nickelodeon, Variety has confirmed.

The series, inspired by the 2003 Jack Black movie of the same name, premiered on March 12 and has aired four episodes. Season 2 will consist of 13 episodes.

Paramount TV produces the kids’ musical comedy show, which marked the first series order for the television division of Paramount Pictures, which was behind the original film.

“School of Rock” follows musician-turned-substitute teacher Dewey (Tony Cavalero), who becomes the most unique and well-liked teacher a group of students have ever had. Although he has an alternative approach to teaching and could probably learn more from his students about history or math, he uses the language of rock ‘n’ roll to elevate and inspire his class to reach new heights as the band called School of Rock.

Ricardo Hurtado, Lance Lim, Aidan Miner, Jade Pettyjohn and Breanna Yde star as the “School of Rock” students. Jim and Steve Armogida (“Crash & Bernstein,” “My Family”) are exec producers, along with Jay Kogen, Eli Bush, plus Scott Rudin and Richard Linklater, who produced and directed the original film, respectively.

Jade recently did an interview with RCN America DC. In the interview she talked about her start in the industry, School of Rock, and more!

When did you start acting?

I started acting when I was seven years old, however, when I was around four years old I figured out that actors are the ones who play make believe for a living. That sealed the deal for me, and I knew I wanted to act.

Was it your dream to be an actor?

Yes and that dream is still there! I’m in love with the art form. Everyday I find new things to love about it, and new things to learn from and challenge me.

Are there challenges pursuing a acting career and being a normal young lady?

Of course in any career one decides to pursue, there will be challenges. I think the key is just balancing everything, which is working for me so far.


I’ve added two new photos featured in the interview to the gallery as well. I absolutely adore them. Go check them out now!

Yesterday, Jade and the cast of School of Rock attended the Kids Choice Awards Press Junket! Thanks to Alexis Joy VIP Access, we have two photos and an interview from the day! One of the questions the cast was asked is if they could send a message to all their fans, what would it be. I absolutely LOVED Jade’s answer.

“Being kind, intelligent, and humble is so much more important than how you look.”

Well said Jade! Check out the full interview and the photos below. Don’t forget to tune in to the season premiere TOMORROW night!!
