Disney XD has cancelled live-action comedy series Lab Rats and Mighty Med while extending both franchises with a new spinoff series that merges some of the most popular characters from both shows.
Lab Rats and Mighty Med will end after their respective fourth and second seasons, before being replaced by the merged spinoff series, entitled Lab Rats: Elite Force, in 2016, as Deadline reports:
The network has given a straight-to-series order for Lab Rats: Elite Force,which will feature Lab Rats‘ Billy Ungerand and Kelli Berglund reprising their roles as Chase and Bree, and Mighty Med‘s Bradley Steven Perry (Kaz), Jake Short (Oliver) and Paris Berelc (Skylar).
The new series will air in 2016. Meanwhile, Lab Rats, renamed Lab Rats: Bionic Island for its current fourth season, and Mighty Med, now in Season 2, will continue to air original episodes they have in the can before ending their runs.
