Liv Rooney (Dove Cameron) has just come home to Stevens Point, Wisconsin after a four-year stint in Hollywood filming a popular television program, Sing It Loud!, that just finished its run, to the open arms of her parents, brothers, and twin sister, Maddie (also played by Cameron). The pair had hoped to resume their relationship from before Liv left, but have unfortunately grown into opposing personalities. Liv has become very girly and enjoys any time someone mentions her former career, whereas Maddie has become a tomboy perfecting her basketball skills and is the captain of her basketball team. They have two brothers: Joey (Joey Bragg), the typical awkward teen, and Parker (Tenzing Norgay Trainor), a confident and clever child. Rounding out the Rooney clan is their mother Karen (Kali Rocha), the school psychologist, and their father Pete Rooney (Benjamin King), Maddie's basketball coach, both of whom are anxious to now care for all their children under one roof. Some events take place at Ridgewood High School, where the three elder Rooney children attend and both parents work, while Parker's school is unknown. Jacob Mitchell is introduced into the story as Liv's long time boyfriend who moved to Stevens Point after his family died in a very bad fire. Season 3 introduces a new character. Josh Willcox, who is an actor from Hollywood California and stars alongside Liv as her love interest Garrison in Voltage, and is Maddie's new love interest, in seasons 3 and 4.
