Not even 24-hours after their epic sweep at the Golden Globe Awards, the cast of Abbot Elementary has more to celebrate. The ABC sitcom has been renewed for season three.
“This renewal is a richly deserved feather in the cap of Quinta Brunson, Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Randall Einhorn, as well as the rest of the cast and crew of Abbott Elementary. Each week, this talented group of artists celebrates true unsung heroes — public school teachers. And for some extra icing on the renewal cake, our favorite group of teachers was honored this morning with two Screen Actors Guild Award nominations and last night with three Golden Globe Awards.” said Channing Dungey, Chairman and CEO, Warner Bros. Television Group to Deadline.
He continued, “Abbott Elementary is the gift that keeps on giving, and I look forward to many more magnificent episodes of this brilliant, authentic, and just plain funny series.”
Just in case, you are not familiar with the show, here is a brief synopsis to catch you up!
The series follows a group of dedicated, passionate teachers — and a slightly tone-deaf principal — are brought together in a Philadelphia public school where, despite the odds stacked against them, they are determined to help their students succeed in life. 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.
Abbot Elementary is a co-production with Warner Bros Television Group and 20th Television. The series is was created by Quinta Brunson, who also stars in the show. Additional series cast include: Janine Teagues, Tyler James Williams, Janelle James, Lisa Ann Walter, Chris Perfetti, William Stanford Davis, and Sheryl Lee Ralph.
Both Williams and Brunson won individual Golden Globe awards for their roles in the series in addition to the series itself taking home the 2023 Golden Globe for Best Television Series (Comedy or Musical), beating out The Bear, Hacks, Only Murders in the Building and Wednesday.
