TWIST just got off the phone with Kelli Berglund from Lab Rats, and she spilled some exclusive deets about the new season! Be sure to catch the season premiere of Lab Rats on February 25 at 9 pm ET/PT on Disney XD!
TWIST: What can we expect in the new season of Lab Rats? Kelli Berglund: There are a lot of exciting things that happen this season. As you know, the first season ended on a cliffhanger, and we have this new evil villain that's starting to go against us. You see that progress, and you see him get even more evil, and you see what he's all about and why he's after us. The story has a huge twist in it, which I'm really excited for the audience to see. There are a lot of secrets that are revealed this season. You find out who we are, and why we are the way we are. It's just really cool, and all of our characters really grow through this season. We also have some new abilities that are exposed, so that's pretty cool.
TWIST: How is it being the one girl in the Lab Rats? KB: It's actually pretty fun. I thought the same thing to myself when I first started this. At the beginning of season one I was like, "I am the only girl here and I'm surrounded by boys all day long. Hopefully I'll be able to get along with them and we'll have fun." But honestly, they're like my family. They're like my real brothers, and we all get along so well. We're always hanging out on and off set, and they just make me feel welcomed as the only girl. It's pretty cool knowing that I have a great group of guys that I'm with every day.
TWIST: What do you think of the new Lab Rats mission suits? KB: The new suits are so cool. They're very different from the first season mission suits. Bree gets a huge upgrade. She gets these really cool boots, they're knee-high boots and they're leather. And she gets this cool belt and there's a zipper. Instead of having my hair up in the ponytail, it's down and flowing. It's really cool to see her transition from first season to second season. Even the boys' suits, they make a huge change as well. Instead of it just being one big suit, it's two pieces, and the whole thing is very Avengers-like, like Black Widow and Hawk-Eye. That's what they were inspired by, so they're so awesome and we all love them.
TWIST: Your character is bionic, but if you could have a superpower, what would it be? KB: It would be a tie between being able to be invisible and being able to fly. I've wanted those powers since I was five years old, and I still do. I think they're so cool.
TWIST: How do you think Bree has kind of changed and grown? KB: Bree has definitely become a lot more confident this season. At the beginning of the first season you saw how insecure she was being out in the real world and having to adjust to everything, along with her brothers. They were all a little awkward at first, just trying to get used to everything. But she's lived in the real world now for a good amount of time, she's getting used to things. She's really a typical teenage girl and she does typical teenage-girl things. This season you see her have a few new love interests, and see her with different boys. It's just cool to see her transition from first season to second season confidence-wise, because I think that's what the audience wanted to see - just see her grow into herself and become the teenage girl that she really wanted to be.
TWIST: Do you have any upcoming projects that you want to tell us about? KB: Right now I'm just working on Lab Rats page season two. I was actually producing a bit of music, which I'll hopefully be releasing maybe halfway through the year. That's still in progress and we're still working on that, That'd be really cool if I could get that started. Other than that, just filming season two and hopefully some other things with Disney.
TWIST: Thank you so much! KB: Thank you!
