Disney’s ABC has announced it has renewed the hit comedy series, “Abbott Elementary” for a second 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.
Check out the official correspondence (from the desk of James’ breakout character Principal Coleman) below:
“Abbott Elementary” stars Quinta Brunson as Janine Teagues, Tyler James Williams as Gregory Eddie, Janelle James as Ava Coleman, Chris Perfetti as Jacob Hill, Lisa Ann Walter as Melissa Schemmenti and Sheryl Lee Ralph as Barbara Howard.
Quinta Brunson serves as writer and executive producer alongside Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker of Delicious Non-Sequitur Productions. The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios. The pilot episode is written by Quinta Brunson and directed by Randall Einhorn.
The second season won’t be released until later this year and the first season only debuted on ABC in December, quickly becoming a ratings winner, as it was ABC’s number one comedy series from the past two years.
Previously aired episodes from the first season are available on Hulu in the United States and is currently being released on Disney+ in Australia & New Zealand, however, a release date hasn’t yet been announced for Disney+ in the UK, Ireland or Canada.
