On May 13, 2019, Netflix released a movie called ‘Malibu Rescue’, which follows a bunch of teenagers who decide to give the snobs at the Malibu Junior Rescue Program an answer to their arrogance. Soon after, the creators realised that a film is not enough to capture the fun and essence of this story. Even with the end of the story in the film, there is a lot more to know about and explore the characters. So, in agreement with Netflix, they decided to turn it into a series. And here we are!
The show is created by Savage Steve Holland (‘Sabrina: The Animated Series’, ‘Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure’ and ‘Better Off Dead…’) and developed by Jed Elinoff (‘Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja’, ‘Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated’, ‘Robotica’), who has also served as a writer along with Molly Haldeman (‘Fast Layne’, ‘Billy on the Street’), Scott McAboy (‘Little Bigfoot’, ‘Splitting Adam’), Camilla Rubis (‘Raven’s Home’, ‘Best Friends Whenever’), Thomas Scott (‘Teen’) and Jim Martin (‘Raven’s Home’, ‘Happyland’, ‘Heroes’).
The show is executive produced by Jed Elinoff, McAboy, Scott Thomas, Kiran Bhakta Joshi and Rupak Kayastha. Amy Sydorick and Sim Martin serve as the producers. Scott McAboy, Shannon Flynn (‘Holiday Spectacular’, ‘Hannah Montana’, ‘Instant Mom’) and Savage Steve Holland serve as the directors of the series.

Malibu Rescue: The Series Plot: What’s It About?
The story of ‘Malibu Rescue’ begins with a young boy named Tyler. He is a mischievous kid and his stepfather has had enough of his tomfoolery. With the whole summer ahead of him, his family doesn’t deem it right for him to stay at home for so long with nothing to do. In order to engage him with better things, he is sent to the Malibu Junior Rescue Program. Already disinterested in the project, as he considers this a punishment, he forms friendships with a bunch of kids from the Valley. They are all alike and don’t want much to do with the program. But that’s only because their parents want them to do it. You want a child to do something? Tell them not to do it! When the group discovers that the program director wants them to fail so he doesn’t have to pick children from their place anymore, they decide to show him what they are capable of.
Malibu Rescue Season 2 Release Date: When Will It Premiere?
‘Malibu Rescue’ season 1 premiered on June 3, 2019. Being a summer show, it entices the teenagers wanting to binge something in their holidays. Also, the ones who have seen the film watched the show to know what happens next to the characters. Thus, the show has already built a good audience for itself.
As far as the next season goes, we don’t have an official announcement yet.
