With new executive producers Lester Lewis and Paul Hoen on board, the Disney series would follow Jonas Brothers' characters fresh from completing their tour and residing in Hollywood Hills.
"J.O.N.A.S!" will no longer be recognized by its first season title because Disney Channel is changing it to "JONAS L.A.". In the wake of season 2 premiere, Disney would like to introduce new music, setting and format of the series which is returning on screen Sunday, June 20 at 8:30 P.M..
In this season, the production has gone stage-less and is produced entirely on location around Los Angeles. It showcases music performances as the Jonas Brothers portray a band of brothers navigating new waters. The soundtracks which will be included in the season are "L.A. Baby (Where Dreams Are Made Of)," "Chillin' in the Summertime" and "Your Biggest Fan" among 10 others.
According to the press release, Kevin, Joe and Nick - and their security chief, Big Man - are fresh off their world concert tour and ready for a summer vacation in a rental house high atop the Hollywood Hills. As they begin their left coast adventure, two familiar faces, Stella and Macy, join them and wind up sharing a nearby guesthouse with Stella's aunt Lisa. Now, the five friends take off on a summer of fun, especially after they meet their gregarious neighbor, DZ.
Despite months of anticipation, Joe and Stella encounter detours on the road to "Joella," mainly since he's met free-spirited actress Vanessa Page, who's helping him pursue his acting ambition. After auditioning in a room filled with "Joes," he lands a role in Vanessa's new movie, and their mercurial working relationship quickly spurs rumors of "Jonessa."
While on the movie set, Kevin gets his long sought chance to learn film directing, and manages to steer around the abrasive manner of his mentor, famed director Mona Klein. Meanwhile, Nick writes new songs for the band and is pleasantly surprised by his growing friendship with Macy, which makes him want to prove he's more than just a world famous rock star.
It had been previously reported that Emma Roberts would make a guest starring appearance in an episode which date is still unannounced.
