The second season premiere depicts one of Andi’s two best friends, 13-year-old Cyrus (Joshua Rush), as he’s beginning to realize that he also has feelings for Andi’s crush, Jonah Beck. In subsequent episodes, Cyrus begins to understand himself and grapples with how to tell his new girlfriend. He finds he can count on supportive friends Buffy and Andi who, as teenagers, are also on a journey to self-discovery. This realization begins an important part of his journey to self-discovery as a gay individual and ultimately, his self-acceptance. The story arc marks a first for Disney Channel, as it will be the first time the channel has depicted a character’s journey to discovering they are gay.

The storyline was met with praise by LGBTQ groups, who were allowed to screen the premiere in advance.
