Disney Channel’s ‘Sonny With a Chance,’ starring Demi Lovato, premiered during 2009

If you’re missing the “Check It Out Girls” and having flashbacks from Chad and Sonny’s first date on Sonny With a Chance, we have good news for you. After months of anticipation, this Disney Channel series joins Hannah Montana, That’s So Raven, and Good Luck Charlie on Disney’s streaming platform, Disney+.

Sonny With a Chance, starring Camp Rock actress Demi Lovato, was a show within a show, giving fans an inside look into Sonny’s life in Hollywood. There are a few comedy sketches and even a romance with MacKenzie Falls star, Chad. The series ran on Disney’s television network from 2009 through 2011. Now, three seasons will be available for Disney+ subscribers. 

‘Sonny With a Chance’ premieres on Disney+ this April

This television series comes along with a slew of content debuting on the platform amidst the coronavirus pandemic. Previously, the streaming platform released the animated movie Frozen 2, and announced plans to debut Disney and Pixar’s Onward only weeks after its theatrical release. 

There are also episodes of Disney+ originals Be Our Chef, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and One Day at Disney. Unlike spinoffs like High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder, and the indefinitely postponed Lizzie McGuire series, Sonny With a Chance will not include new episodes exclusive to this platform. 

According to Teen Vogue, seasons 1-3 of this comedy will premiere on the Disney+ library, becoming available on April 3. 

There’s no word regarding if, or when, Sonny With A Chance’s spinoff series So Random, will premiere on Disney+. (This was the show about the show within the show, featuring cast members in original skits and guest appearances from Justin Bieber, Colbie Caillat, Selena Gomez, and others.)
