ABC’s hit comedy Abbott Elementary officially returns for another season.
The network announced the news in a memo from director Ava Coleman (played by fan favorite Janelle James) to teachers and students, “aka my fans,” she writes. “The camera crew I’ve hired to show what I’ve made happen at our beautiful school thinks I’m a star. I mean, are we surprised? No, we are not :),” she added. “Having said that, I am delighted to share that they will be returning for the 2022-2023 school year! That’s right – Abbott Elementary season two is coming to a screen near you.”
The extension comes as no surprise given Abbott’s immense success. After it debuted on ABC in December, its ratings quadrupled — a first for the network — thanks in large part to viewership on streaming platforms (like Hulu.) And everyone on Twitter has probably noticed the show’s trending after new episodes aired on Tuesday. Today’s news comes during Abbott’s mid-season hiatus, but new episodes resume next week on March 22.
Created by and starring Quinta Brunson, the mockumentary-esque workplace sitcom follows a group of teachers, their outrageous principal, and the hilarious and adorable kids they teach at an underfunded Philadelphia elementary school. In addition to Brunson and James, the main cast also stars Tyler James Williams, Chris Perfetti, Lisa Ann Walter and Sheryl Lee Ralph.
In addition to announcing Season 2, ABC also launched DonorsChoose.org, where people can share donations to public school classes in need across the country. (Ava, however, prefers $100 gift cards for her personal use.)
