ABC announced today that Abbott Elementary has been picked up for a second season. Coming nine episodes into its freshman run, the good news follows a strong start for the workplace comedy. Since its December premiere, the show has garnered high critical praise and ratings that rank it as one of TV's top comedies.

The half-hour series follows a group of passionate teachers, along with their slightly tone-deaf principal, doing their best to help their students succeed at a Philadelphia public school. Outnumbered and underfunded, these dedicated educators still love their jobs, even if the school district has a less-than-stellar attitude toward educating children.

Look for Season 2 of Abbott Elementary this fall as part of the 2022-2023 season.
