'Abbott Elementary' is Coming Back for Another Season

Quinta Brunson's hit show, Abbott Elementary, will be coming back for another season.

Abbott Elementary, one of the biggest hits over the last couple of years, has been renewed for another season. The announcement was made made via a “memo” from Abbott Elementary principal Ava Coleman (who is played wonderfully by Janelle James) that was released on the show's Instagram.

Quinta Brunson, who created and stars in the show about a band of Philadelphia-based teachers, also responded to the news on Twitter:

Abbott Elementary debuted in December and was a hit from the start. The show has a 100 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes and is ABC’s top-rated new comedy in two years among Adults 18-49. There is also a massive social media-based movement around the show. (The show has been off for a month and fans are letting Brunson know about it.)

Last month, Brunson talked to the AVClub about the out-of-the-box success the show has had. She told the publication:

"It’s the dream. Yeah, the typical thing for most sitcoms—except for maybe in the ’80s, which was golden years for sitcoms—a show usually airs for a couple of seasons, and then people get on the train. Then there’s a super fandom that comes in during seasons three or four. It’s happened for lots of shows recently, like with Schitt’s Creek. Even Ted Lassowasn’t as popular ’til it totally finished airing its first season. But now, with Abbott Elementary, it’s been crazy that in our first three episodes we got this response. I’m overwhelmed and grateful, but I didn’t expect it."

After a month break, Abbott returns to ABC next Tuesday, March 22nd.
