The title star of the Disney Channel series Jessie is set to wed at the end of the show's current season.

The AP announced Wednesday that during a four-episode arc the main character of the series Jessie Prescott (played by Debby Ryan) will accept her new boyfriend's marriage proposal. According to Adam Bonnett, Disney Channel executive vice president of original programming, this will mark the first time a lead character on the channel has become engaged.

During the four shows Jessie will meet, and eventually marry, her new beau Brooks (Pierson Fode). While this marks the first time that attention has been focused on the proposal of a lead character in a Disney Channel series, it is not the first time a series has focused on marriage among its characters. In 2013 on the series Shake It Up the episode 'Future It Up' shows the main cast twenty-two years in the future where series leads Rocky and Cece are both married with children, as is Deuce and Dina who are expecting another child. During the episode the characters Ty and Tinka, who had dated early on in the series, reunite at the school dance in the future and decide to get married.

Jessie is currently in it's third season. The series airs Fridays at 8/7c on Disney Channel.
