Word is out that NBC Universal is reviving A.P. Bio for a third season on its upcoming streaming service. The good news comes two months after the comedy was cancelled following two low-rated seasons on NBC.

Created by Mike O'Brien and produced by Seth Meyers, the comedy premiered in 2018 as a mid-season entry that ultimately garnered mixed reviews and underwhelming viewership. Still, it was renewed for a second go-round, though its sophomore run did not improve its fortunes and it was axed in June.

Today's revival makes A.P. Bio the first confirmed original series on the as-yet-unnamed streaming service, which is set to debut sometime in 2020. While the show's return date has not been announced, Season 3 will likely premiere when the service launches.

The half-hour series follows a philosophy scholar who, after losing out on his dream job, takes a position as a high school Advanced Placement Biology teacher. But he has plans far beyond teaching biology, including using his classroom full of honor roll students to help him mentally break his job-stealing nemesis and win back the position that he feels is rightfully his.
