Renewed: Abbott Elementary

From Golden Globe wins to a third season. Booyah.

A day after three Golden Globe wins, Abbott Elementary has been renewed for a third season.

The series follows a group of dedicated, passionate teachers — and a slightly tone-deaf principal — 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.

The series is currently in its second season, averaging of 9.1m viewers per episode in 35 day viewing on ABC.

“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 favourite group of teachers was honuored 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,” said Channing Dungey, Chairman and CEO, Warner Bros. Television Group.

Three Golden Globe wins went to creator and star Quinta Brunson plus Tyler James Williams, who feature alongside Janelle James, Lisa Ann Walter, Chris Perfetti, William Stanford Davis, and Sheryl Lee Ralph.

Abbott Elementary screens in Australia on Disney+.

  1. Been watching this on Disney+ weekly. Its such an underated show, its hilarious, with heart without being too preachy like anything new you’d find on Netflix or Stan. Definietly give it a go if you havent yet!

  2. I tried to watch this show and found it hugely unfunny, so I only lasted a couple of episodes. Cannot see how it bested The Bear at the Golden Globes.

    1. Agree, I couldn’t finish episode one. Although I did finish The Bear out of hope that something would actually happen, it’s very far removed from being a comedy (or drama) of any sorts. I’d put it in the category of produced for the sake of content.
