Debby Ryan is ready to take off in her new show "Jessie." It was just announced yesterday that 7 more episodes of the show have been ordered before it has even aired! So exciting.

Debby recently dropped by our studios to chat all about "Jessie" and her adorable co-stars. Here's what she had to say:

On "Jessie": "The whole premise is she [Jessie] moves to New York City to follow her dreams on her own with no plan and just kind of does her thing. People go and find themselves and take breaks before college and end up in interesting places and meeting interesting people, so it showcases that side of growing up."

On growing with her fans: "My biggest thing going into it was I was 12 when I started watching "Suite Life" and now I'm 18. A lot of my fans were 12, 13, 14 when they started watch "Suite Life" and now they're 18, 19, 20. I'm doing it for the "Suite Life" fans and the people who are getting a little bit older while still making it really fun for the parents to sit and watch with their friends."

On the kids: "I call them my nuggets. They're amazing. They're four of the coolest, most diverse, talented, hard working kids."

Debby also told us about being very involved in the whole process of the show, from development to wardrobe to casting. "Jessie" is set to premiere this Fall on Disney Channel.
