‘Abbott Elementary' Gets Early Season 3 Renewal
Abbott Elementary has officially been renewed for a third season.
According to Variety, Quinta Brunson's award-winning series got an early renewal. Channing Dungey, chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Television Group, said in a statement, “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.”
Dungey continued, “Each week, this talented group of artists celebrates true unsung heroes — public school teachers. And for some extra icing on the renewal cake, our favorite group of teachers was honored 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.”
The show follows Brunson’s character Janine Teague, an elementary school teacher who goes above and beyond to support her students alongside her co-stars, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Tyler James Williams, Lisa Ann Walter, and Janelle James.
Last night, Brunson won her first Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series or Musical for her role on Abbott Elementary. Tyler James Williams also won a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Musical-Comedy or Drama Television Series.
