Family-themed BYUtv has ordered a second season of its original scripted adventure comedy series, “Dwight In Shining Armor” before its official debut. The half-hour series takes place in a suburban town where Dwight (Sloan Morgan Siegel), a 21st century teen, falls into an ancient, underground chamber and lands lip-to-lip with Gretta (Caitlin Carmichael), a gothic princess who has been magically sleeping for a thousand years. Dwight’s “kiss” awakens Gretta, her court magician, Baldric (Joel McCrary), as well as scores of medieval villains, and makes Dwight her de facto champion until her hordes of enemies are defeated.
Season one of “Dwight in Shining Armor” will premiere on Monday, March 18, 2019 at 9:30 p.m. ET.
“We are so pleased with what we have seen of the first season and are confident it will resonate with the families who watch it,” said Michael Dunn, managing director of BYUtv. “It is without hesitation that we greenlight a second season of ‘Dwight in Shining Armor,’ and we look forward to revealing the new adventures in store for these characters. We believe this show will bring new audiences to our network and demonstrate well the direction of our original programming.”
