The new film, titled “Life With Luca” will pick up “15 years later, as Derek (Michael Seater) and his ‘Type A’ personality daughter Skyler prepare to move in with aunt Casey (Ashley Leggat) and her extended family,” as per IMDb.
In a tweet shared by Leggat, the 36-year-old actress teased that her and co-star Seater’s onscreen kids “can’t seem to get along” just like their characters Casey and Derek, respectively.
It’s official – Derek & Casey are back! This time, with each of their own kids who can’t seem to get along. Sound familiar?
