Nathaniel Potvin learns more about his powers in the new MECH-X-4
We've got your weekend plans sorted! Our favorite team of robot-controlling heroes is back for a second season of MECH-X4 on Disney XD this Saturday, Sept. 9 with five back-to-back episodes—and you don't want to miss it.
ICYMI, MECH-X4 follows Ryan, your not-so-typical high school freshman, as he discovers his technopathic powers–which accidentally awakens a giant robot. Ryan and his friends Spyder (Pearce Joza) and Harris (Kamran Lucas) and his bro, Mark, (Raymond Cham) help him operate the robot to fight off monsters that threaten to overtake their town. Last season–which you can watch on the Disney XD app and Disney Channel app–left us sitting at the edges of our seats, which is why we’re so excited to see the new challenges the team faces. This season, be prepared for more action, some serious girl power and more monsters.
As epic as that all sounds, we can’t help but be most excited for Ryan to learn more about his powers. “Ryan starts exploring what he can actually do with his power,” Nathaniel dished on his character in season two. “I don’t want to divulge too much, but he learns some new stuff he can do, and the other characters learn a few things about themselves as well. They contributed before, but now we all kick a bunch of butt together as a team!”
While fighting off evil, Nathaniel got to do some pretty epic stunts that we’re *definitely* looking forward to seeing.
“I try to do all of my stunts, but if it’s too hard I let my stunt double do it," he spilled. "I love the stunt work so much. But if there’s something that’s dangerous, the student coordinator will be like, ‘Nate, you know you can’t do this, right?’ and I’m like 'Well I want to,' and he's like, 'Well, too bad.' It’s super fun. The stunts don’t scare me at all.”
Don’t miss five brand new episodes of MECH-X4 back-to-back Sept. 9 on Disney XD at 11 a.m.
