Following the huge win of three Golden Globe Awards, Disney’s ABC has announced at the 2023 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour that they have renewed the hit comedy series “Abbott Elementary” for a third season.
This workplace comedy follows a group of dedicated, passionate teachers — and a slightly tone-deaf principal —as they navigate the Philadelphia public school system. Despite the odds stacked against them, they are determined to help their students succeed in life, and though these incredible public servants may be outnumbered and underfunded, they love what they do — even if they don’t love the school district’s less-than-stellar attitude toward educating children.
“Abbott Elementary” delivers a 3.58 rating in Adults 18-49 after 35 days of viewing across platforms, growing 31% over its prior season and ranking as ABC’s No. 1 series this season. In addition, the sophomore ABC sitcom averaged 9.1 million Total Viewers in its second season after 35 days of cross-platform viewing, marking an increase of 13% over the last season.
New episodes from the second season are currently being released on Wednesdays on ABC in the US and available to stream the next day on Hulu. The series is also released internationally as a Star Original on Disney+.
Quinta Brunson created and stars as Janine Teagues, and she serves as executive producer of the series alongside Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker of Delicious Non-Sequitur Productions, and Randall Einhorn. In addition to Brunson, the cast includes Tyler James Williams as Gregory Eddie, Janelle James as Ava Coleman, Lisa Ann Walter as Melissa Schemmenti, Chris Perfetti as Jacob Hill, William Stanford Davis as Mr. Johnson, and Emmy Award winner Sheryl Lee Ralph as Barbara Howard.
The series is created by Warner Bros. Television and 20th Television. The first season is also available to stream now on Hulu in the US and on Disney+ around the world.
