Before they were major stars, notable names like Noah Centineo and Sabrina Carpenter made surprise guest star appearances on Disney Channel’s Austin & Ally.
Ross Lynch and Laura Marano starred as Austin Moon and Ally Dawson, respectively, in the show, which aired for four seasons from 2011 until 2016. Fans watched as the title characters explored their relationship while performing as a dynamic singing duo. During their singing and songwriting escapades, Austin and Ally were often joined by their best friends, Trish De la Rosa (played by Raini Rodriguez) and Dez (played by Calum Worthy).
The series might have come to an end, but it’s still one of the most beloved Disney Channel shows. Even the cast is down to see what their characters are up to now.
During an exclusive February 2020 interview with J-14, Laura said that she’s “100 percent” down to bring Austin & Ally back to TV in some capacity.
“In my head, we would be in some sort of amazing, foreign country,” the Royal Treatment star added. “I feel like we can’t do Italy because Lizzie McGuire already did that, but let’s go to England! Or let’s go to Hawaii — that’s not a foreign country but that’s a very beautiful, tropical place. I feel like it would be visually stunning, and it would be so fun to hang out with Calum, Raini and Ross in a vacation spot.”
When celebrating the show’s 10-year anniversary in December 2021, Laura shared a heartfelt tribute about her experience on the show.
“A few days ago, it was the tenth-year anniversary of when Austin and Ally’s first episode came out. My life changed forever because of this show for a few reasons, but mostly because I got to meet and work with some of my favorite people ever,” she wrote, in part. “We truly had one of the greatest groups of people working on this show, from our amazing crew to our hilarious writers to our insanely talented guest stars. Everyone was so good at their jobs, but most importantly, they were just really good people.”
Nearly a month later, Laura echoed her love for the series while appearing on the “Chicks in the Office” podcast.
“Austin & Ally is a show that changed my life. It’s a show I’m very proud of and it was another really incredible experience,” the former Disney Channel star shared during a January 2022 episode. “I talk about working with family. It felt like — even if it was the four of us or whether it was the whole crew — we really became family from that show. I think about all the time how much I miss that, going to work and seeing your family. Seeing people that you connect with and work really well with and feel quite close to.”
