Andi Mack premiered on Disney Channel on April 7, 2017. When asked about casting Lee in the lead role, Andi Mack executive producer Terri Minsky said she "liked that Lee did not look as if she had fallen off a child-star assembly line", later stating that "What's really great about Peyton is that she can easily handle both the drama and the comedy of this character." On January 9, 2018, it was announced that Lee is joining the Disney Junior animated series The Lion Guard as Rani, appearing in seven to nine episodes from the third season.
Lee is half Chinese on her father's side; her father is actor Andrew Tinpo Lee, whom she describes as "one of the major reasons why I have become an actor." Her mother, Jennifer Dormer Lee, is a psychologist. She has an older sister and a younger brother.
