The award-winning critically acclaimed US comedy ‘Abbott Elementary’ will return to the UK on Disney+ on 1st March 2023 it has been confirmed.
The 22-episode second season will debut with the first 10 episodes and further episodes will be made available later in the year.
Created by, and starring, Quinta Brunson ‘Abbott Elementary’ is a workplace comedy following a group of dedicated, passionate teachers – and a slightly tone-deaf principal – as they navigate the Philadelphia public school system. Despite the odds stacked against them, they are determined to help their students succeed in life, and 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.
Brunson stars as plucky teacher Janine Teagues, a woman determined to turn her school around and who refuses to do things they way they’ve always been done. The cast for the show also includes Tyler James Williams as Gregory Eddie, Janelle James as Ava Coleman, Lisa Ann Walter as Melissa Schemmenti, Chris Perfetti as Jacob Hill, William Stanford Davis as Mr. Johnson, and Emmy Award winner Sheryl Lee Ralph as Barbara Howard.
In January, the show was given an early renewal meaning that the gang will be back for a third season.
Season 1 of ‘Abbott Elementary’ is available to stream on Disney+ in the UK now.
