ABC Renews Abbott Elementary For A Third Season

 

 

ABC renewed the hit comedy “Abbott Elementary” for a third season yesterday, a day after two cast members scored big at the 60th annual Golden Globe Awards.

 

Channing Dungey chairman and CEO of Warner Brothers Television Group said:

“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. ‘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.”

 

 

If you are familiar with the single-camera comedy perspective of “The Office” you’ll love this show.

 

Honestly, it’s one of my favorite new comedies, the show takes you through a day at Abbott Elementary based in Philadelphia.

 

You follow the adventures of the staff having to deal with teaching kids at the worse school in town.

 

There are the crazy/hilarious kids, a principal that doesn’t deserve her job, (comedian Janelle James) a teacher that really deserves it but has to live with seeing someone unqualified do a job they can excel at (Tyler James Williams), the uppity senior teacher (Sherly Lee Ralph) a comedic janitor, and Janelle Teague played by Quinta Brunson is the teacher that means well, but always finds herself in a jam.

 

 

“Abbott Elementary” airs Wednesday nights on ABC.
