Keep the laughs coming – ABC's runaway hit Abbott Elementary is getting a third season!
The pickup news comes after the mockumentary won Best Comedy Series at the 2023 Golden Globes — as well as individual wins for it's star and creator Quinta Brunson and costar Tyler James Williams. The series, which follows the professional and personal lives of the staff of an underfunded Philadelphia elementary school has won the hearts of viewers since it's premiere last year.
“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,'” said Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Channing Dungey about the upcoming season, per Variety. “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.”
Quinta Brunson and her costar Sheryl Lee Ralph recently reflected on the success of the series for Harper's BAZAAR's February issue.
"I get to come to a show every day that I genuinely love. From the story phase, to the outline phase, to the table reads, to us actually filming it, to the very moment that it’s on its last edit, I’m constantly inspired," Brunson told BAZAAR. "That’s a rare feeling as a creator, for your own work to inspire you, but it’s because I’m working with so many amazing people."
Ahead is everything we know so far about season 3 of Abbott Elementary.
When will season 3 premiere?
