When the second season of Andi Mack premiers on the Disney Channel, fans of the show will see something a bit different: Andi's best friend, Cyrus, coming to terms with the fact that he's gay.
“Andi Mack is a story about ‘tweens’ figuring out who they are,” a spokesperson for the Disney Channel says in a statement to People.
“Show writer, Terri Minsky, the cast and everyone involved in the show takes great care in ensuring that it’s appropriate for all audiences and sends a powerful message about inclusion and respect for humanity.”
As the season progresses, Cyrus will begin "to better understand himself with the love and support from his close friends and family."
Season two of Andi Mack premieres this Friday, October 27, at 8 p.m.
