“Mean Girls 2” stars Meaghan Martin (“10 Things I Hate About You,” “Camp Rock 1 & 2”), Maiara Walsh (“Desperate Housewives”), Jennifer Stone (“Wizards of Waverly Place”), Nicole Gale Anderson (“Make It or Break It””), Claire Holt (“H20: Just Add Water”) and Diego Boneta (“Pretty Little Liars”) in a classic high school story about good versus plastic. When new girl Jo (Martin) arrives at North Shore High School, her main goal is to skate under the radar to survive her senior year and definitely not get involved in any of the typical high school trappings. But her plan goes awry quickly when she meets Abby (Stone), a girl stuck at the low end of the high school food chain and favorite target of “The Plastics” (Walsh, Holt and Anderson). After defending Abby against the queen bee of the school and lead Plastic, Mandi (Walsh), Jo is dragged into the very same girl drama she was hoping to avoid. Tim Meadows returns as the school’s principal, Mr. Duvall.
