Attention all workplace comedy lovers: have we got good news for you! The hit ABC mockumentary, Abbott Elementary has been picked up for a second season amidst raving reviews and a huge fan base. And to be honest, we're not that surprised! It's been a whirlwind of success for Quinta Brunson and her team of co-stars since news of the show first leaked.
With the second installment of this quirky, feel-good comedy on its way, fans can take a deep breath that this breakout show didn't drop off network television. After all, with more and more streaming options, getting the ratings necessary for a re-sign is no small feat these days! But the good news came in a hilarious post uploaded to the show's Instagram account in true Abbott's principal's true style. "Faculty and Students (aka My Fans)," Ava Coleman's fictional note started off. "The camera crew I hired to showcase all that I've made happen at our beautiful school thinks I'm a star. I mean, are we surprised? No, we're not." The press release goes on to confirm that the documentary crew will be returning to the run-down Philadelphia public school to bring us more for the 2022-2023 school year. "That's right - Abbott Elementary Season Two is coming to a screen near you."
Season one was full of awkward and hilarious moments that built a nation-wide fanbase, but comedic lines aren't the only reason that Abbott Elementary became so beloved. Because while Quinta's comedy show pokes fun at the broken-down public school system in her hometown of Philadelphia, the show's trying to do some good by putting money back into the community. Just earlier this week, the show confirmed that they're sponsoring not one but seven Scholastic Book Fairs at underserved schools around the country. That sure sounds like something Miss Janine Teagues would be in support of!
With no release date lined up for the highly anticipated second season, that sure gives us enough time to binge the hit first season of Abbott Elementary enough times. But don't worry, we'll be ready to update you when any news comes our way. Until then, check back for more updates from the world of comedy!
