While Demi Lovato focuses on her personal issues in rehab, producers behind her Disney Channel series have been forced to make changes of their own.
Those behind Sonny with a Chance will temporarily adjust the focus of the series while its star recovers, placing the spotlight on the program within the program, So Random!. The switch means production on season three will begin in January.
"[This] allows [Demi] the time she needs to get well, without distraction or pressure," a Disney Channel spokeswoman said. "Again, we extend our ongoing support to Demi and her family as she works to overcome personal issues."
There is no timetable for Lovato's return to singing or acting. Sources continue to debate the reasons behind her downfall, but THG simply wishes this young star a full, healthy recovery.
