Lab Rats, also known as Lab Rats: Bionic Island for the fourth season, is an American television sitcom that premiered on February 27, 2012 on Disney XD. It focuses on the life of teenager Leo Dooley, whose mother, Tasha, marries billionaire genius Donald Davenport. He meets Adam, Bree, and Chase (Davenport's latest projects), with whom he develops an immediate friendship.
The series was created by Chris Peterson and Bryan Moore. On January 15, 2011, Billy Unger, who plays Chase, stated that the series was originally called Billion Dollar Freshman. However, the pilot was re-shot, with the changing of the name to Lab Rats, and the addition of Bree who is the only girl of the group and Adam who is the oldest of the three.

In May 2014, Disney XD renewed Lab Rats for a fourth season, which makes it the second original series of Disney XD to go past three seasons, after Kickin' It. The fourth season premiered on March 18, 2015. On July 1, 2015, Kelli Berglund, who plays Bree, stated that the fourth season would be its last.
Young teenager Leo Dooley's mother, Tasha, gets remarried to billionaire inventor Donald Davenport, & they move in with him. While trying to find his bedroom, Leo accidentally discovers teenage siblings with bionic powers living in his new basement. Leo secretly takes them to school for the first time and the show follows the bionic teens as they unravel in adventurous situations in an attempt to live life like a normal family in the fictional town of Mission Creek, California. As the show progresses in Seasons 2, 3, and 4, it gets darker with the introduction of Davenport's younger brother Douglas (turned good in Season 3), Douglas' android son Marcus, Victor Krane, S-1, Sebastian (formerly known as S-3) and Krane's bionic soldiers.
By Season 4, Davenport opens a bionic academy on a bionic island to train Krane's bionic soldiers to be the world's new heroes.
Chase Davenport (Billy Unger) is the team leader and the youngest of the three. He has incredible intelligence and is able to access a vast database of information at any time. Chase can take control over his siblings with his override application in emergencies. He also has a magnetic app. His senses are extremely powerful, including extremely sensitive hearing and the ability to see through solid matter. He can also create force fields which can be used as a weapon by shrinking them into his hand before launching them. When growing too nervous or angry, he glitches to produce Spike, a second personality who is rude and destructive. Spike has super strength, is almost as strong as Adam, and is skilled in hand-to-hand combat. A second glitch causes him to produce a sonic sneeze when his nose is irritated too much. One of his hidden powers is to manipulate energy around objects to freely move them, which he found out in Mission: Space. Another hidden ability is to levitate himself, which he revealed in Bionic Showdown. Because of the actor who plays him, Chase is also very skilled in martial arts and hand-to-hand combat.
In Brother Battle, Douglas gives Chase a new bionic ability: a bow staff that's also a laser, which he can create with his fist.
In Bionic Showdown, it is revealed that Marcus' dad, Douglas, is Chase's creator and not Donald.

Her speed also grants her equally great dexterity, letting her perform feats like typing with just as much speed. One of her hidden powers is to perfectly replicate any voice or sound she has heard at least once.
At the end of Brother Battle, it is revealed that Bree was given invisibility from Douglas. When she gets too nervous, her sound-mimicking power will cause her to randomly use any of them all at once. Bree is the only member in the group to ever question how Terry still has her job despite everything she's done.

After finding out Adam and Chase almost died on a mission because she didn't have her abilities to help, she realized that she was being selfish and asked Donald to make a new bionic chip. Unfortunately, because Douglas was the only one who made their chips, he couldn't repair it, leaving Bree with no bionics. When Leo goes to Douglas for help in Which Father Knows Best?, he and Donald work together and repair her chip.
In First Day of Bionic Academy, she becomes a mentor to train Krane's soldiers to become heroes along with Adam and Chase. When Douglas created the Lab Rats, she was referred to as Subject B until Donald gave her a name.

He is the father figure and seemingly the creator to all of the Lab Rats, but it is later revealed that Douglas is the true creator of the Lab Rats. He usually seems self-centered, childish, and a bit selfish, but he does care about Leo and the Lab Rats. He can be strict at times, especially about the Lab Rats' training or missions. Besides his intelligence, Donald is very good at martial arts and taught the Lab Rats how to use hand-to-hand combat. He may have been the only one to believe Leo when he said Marcus was evil. In Bionic Showdown, after he and the Lab Rats are captured by Douglas, he confesses to them that Douglas was the one who created them.

He is freed by a mysterious masked man in No Going Back. After he is freed, he contacts Donald and tells him that he is the one who maxed out his credit cards, hacked everything in Davenport Industries, and drained all his money out of the bank, and tells him that he's going after the Lab Rats and blows up the lab with Donald and Leo trapped in the lab's elevator.
